Policy Support Officer
Policy Support Officer c.£25k
Central London (some flexibility) Ref: 9430
Solace is a highly-respected voice on the major issues facing public services. We provide powerful and influential contributions that resonate within and beyond local government, on issues from affordable housing and social care, to public service leadership and the implications of Brexit for local communities.
This is an exceptional opportunity to launch your policy career supporting this small, highly respected team. You’ll work closely with our Head of Policy and Senior Policy Officer as they plan, scope and deliver a wide range of research, analysis and reports on key aspects of public policy. You’ll provide a solid administrative foundation to the team’s work, but will also have regular opportunities to get involved in researching and drafting policy positions and papers.
Ambitious, analytical and intellectually strong, with exceptional admin, organisation and writing skills, you’ll have a real interest in the future direction of public service. As well as your personal commitment to a career in policy and ideally some experience of working in a similar setting, we will look for evidence of strong organisational skills, the ability to prioritise and deliver – even under pressure – and an awareness of how to deal effectively and professionally with senior external stakeholders and colleagues. Proven research skills, including gathering and handling large datasets, would be a distinct advantage.
