The Architects Registration Board (ARB) is the professional regulator of architects in the UK.

This role is in our Policy and Communications team and will be central to communicating with the people and organisations affected by our work. An ideal candidate would be someone looking to develop their skills across policy and stakeholder engagement.

The main role responsibilities are:

Researching, planning, and contacting external organisations as part of a wide range of engagement activities and stakeholder relationship development.

Working with colleagues to ensure engagement opportunities are designed to reach target audiences and promoting them to ensure ARB’s work and policy development is informed by a wide range of stakeholder groups.

Organising meetings and events.

Gathering, analysing, and interpreting evidence to inform and support the development of ARB policy, and preparing internal briefing material and reports as needed.

Analysing consultation responses to deliver insights and recommendations

Writing policy and analysis reports

Contributing to the organisation’s horizon scanning by developing expertise and understanding in key areas, monitoring policy developments

Major projects next year that you’ll work on include:

A new Commission looking at the practical experience part of an architect’s education, where you’ll help shape its engagement and work plan while supporting its expert Commissioners to develop policy solutions.

Our review of the Architects Code that sets the standards of professional conduct and practice expected of architects, where you’ll use communications and policy engagement to add to our evidence base as we develop and finalise the new Code.

We’re looking for someone with some experience of stakeholder engagement and a keen interest in policy and communications, who wants to learn more and to develop their career. You don’t need to have worked in architecture or the built environment but you will need to be able to grasp complex policy issues and explain them, while being collaborative and interested in improving the built environment.
