About Coadec

The Coalition for a Digital Economy (Coadec), the policy voice of the tech startup ecosystem in the UK, is hiring a new Head of Economic Policy.

The Role

We’re looking for someone to lead our work on access to capital, investment and tax for startups and investors in the UK. You’ll be blending great research and policy work with top stakeholder management. You’ll be the subject matter expert at Coadec for a key plank of our work reporting directly to our Executive Director - and success looks like the delivery of compelling campaigns backed by evidence and stories from the startup ecosystem that change things on the ground for entrepreneurs and investors in the UK.

The successful candidate will be responsible for:

Leading our policy work on access to finance for startups. You’ll be delivering on a range of policy work across the breadth of critical issues related to the venture capital market, institutional capital allocation, R&D tax credits, investment incentives and more. We need someone who can develop startup-friendly policy in an informal and engaging way that entrepreneurs, investors, politicians, journalists and policy experts can all relate to.

Ensuring Coadec’s voice is heard. Our work only has impact if it’s listened to and delivered. This means directly engaging policy stakeholders, making sure that all relevant Government and regulatory consultations are responded to, that Coadec is featured in relevant press, and that we are represented at conferences and events.

Chipping in on everything else. We run a small operation, so everyone works together to deliver great policy work that helps achieve a policy environment that enables tech startups and scaleups to grow and scale effectively.

Experience & Skills

  • Happy working at pace, can learn fast and who can take the initiative.
  • Approachable and comfortable spending a lot of their time talking to people.
  • Believes in the power of early-stage tech entrepreneurs to improve lives.
  • Is as much of a political nerd as we all are…
