Job Details

DeHavilland is looking for a Policy Coordinator to join its UK Policy Team.

Our Coordinators support our team in being the eyes and ears for our clients of what is going on in Westminster and beyond. The team provides live information and intelligence to help clients understand how the world of politics and policy impacts them, and we provide tools to help them more effectively engage with political stakeholders.

Key responsibilities:

  • Provide political information and intelligence to a portfolio of clients through live coverage, alerts and reports
  • Provide live coverage of events, parliamentary proceedings, speeches and press conferences.
  • Work with the Senior Consultant to help ensure consistent service levels across the team, including through covering and training
  • Provide research support to our clients
  • Contribute to long-form briefings and events coverage for key political moments throughout the year.
  • Your experience and knowledge
  • A strong knowledge of UK policies and the political process
  • Completed degree in political science or equivalent
  • At least six months experience of working in a political/public affairs role
  • Your skills and attributes
  • Ability to deliver information accurately in a fast-paced environment and to think quickly to provide insights in alerts and reports
  • First-class writing and oral skills in English at native level or equivalent
  • A keen eye for quality and attention to detail
  • Excellent time management skills and the ability to multi-task
  • Strong communicator and interpersonal skills
  • A flexible team-player with a high degree of motivation and pro-activeness

Closing Date: 8 April 2024
