Job Title: Policy and Practice Advisor
Working For: Royal Town Planning Institute
Length of Contract: Permanent
Planning in England is going through a period of flux, with the government bringing forward a raft of changes that could have huge repercussions for how the nation responds to some of its biggest challenges. These include economic growth, climate change, building healthy environments, delivering the homes and infrastructure, and properly engaging communities.
For the RTPI’s policy team, there is important work to be done in analysing, responding to, and influencing, this new policy. There is a general election on the horizon, and proactively making the case for the art and science of town planning has never been more important.
The Policy & Practice Advisor will play a vital role in this team. They will provide key input into the RTPI’s policy agenda, help to identify and disseminate good practice, and run RTPI networks. This will require the ability to effectively analyse public policy issues, work as part of a team, and communicate effectively orally, via writing, and when using IT.
The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and influential person interested in the fields of planning, the economy, transport or the environment, and educated to degree level (or with equivalent experience).
