My client, a high profile UK membership body, is looking to add to its Campaigns team based in London. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with political nous to join an organisation that is playing a key part at a unique time for the UK and global political environment.
There are three key functions to the Campaigns team:
- To co-ordinate policy outputs across the organisation to make sure that there is a consistent output that aligns across all channels. This might include identifying and agreeing topics for discussion in meetings, briefing senior management and policy teams and commissioning content;
- Political Engagement: knowing who to speak to and when and spotting opportunities for the organisation to engage externally with politicians, advisers, civil servants, government affairs member contacts, and other representative bodies;
- Project Managing Individual Campaigns: working closely with a particular policy team to develop a political and communication strategy on high profile issues, such as Brexit.
Successful applicants will need to have:
- Experience in a political setting. This could have been in Westminster, a consultancy, or in an equivalent body;
- Awareness of the policy development process in the UK;
- Experience of planning a strategy and delivering a project based on the objectives set;
- A good commercial awareness.
