Job Description

It's a great time to join us. We're part-way through a journey towards being a more effective and more relevant students' union which truly represents and supports our hyper-diverse membership.

The policy manager role is new. You will be responsible for developing the Union’s new policy function to support student officers, other student representatives and staff to develop policy positions on issues affecting our members. You will undertake research in conjunction with colleagues to ensure policy is informed by evidence.

The successful candidate will have experience of working in a similar role with proven success, using evidence-informed approaches to support policy-making, analysing complex evidence from a range of sources and producing reports/recommendations which articulate clear positions and objectives. Experience of supporting the policy work of elected officials or volunteers would be useful but isn't essential.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
