About Us:

Develop life-changing policies in an outstanding Children’s Services hub. 

At the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, we put delivering for our communities at the heart of everything we do. Our Children’s Services operate as a hub for both our borough and neighbouring Westminster. Rated outstanding, we’re committed to improving lives and we are always working hard to innovate on behalf of local children and families. Policies and strategies we develop have the voice of our communities at heart. We involve children when we make important decisions about their lives, and are focused on giving power back to our residents. If you’re passionate about making a difference, join us.

The Role: As Strategy, Partnerships and Policy Officer, you’ll be a vital member of a small team who are developing our strategies and policies for the next three years. Join us and you’ll find there is nothing more rewarding than seeing the impact of a policy you have developed changing real lives. Here, you’ll enjoy a great deal of autonomy. We are open to your ideas and we welcome your ambition, with plenty of support to develop. 

As well as helping to articulate our strategic priorities and shape policy, you’ll lead research and oversight of policy developments both nationally and regionally. The evidence you provide will inform commissioning, innovation and transformation activities. Relationship building and communication - with senior leaders, cabinet members and key stakeholders - will be at the heart of your work. We will look to you to inspire confidence in our service and help to promote a culture of continuous improvement and enterprise. 

Please refer to the Job Description for more information.   About You: To join us, you’ll need a degree level education plus relevant experience of working in a policy or strategy function. A creative thinker with good communication skills, you develop new ideas to solve complex problems. Skilled in research and good with data, you have the ability to interpret diverse source of information and make sound decisions. Your passion for children and young persons’ issues is matched by your knowledge of the policy and legislative context for Children’s Services. It is your flair for collaboration and influencing at all levels that really sets you apart. 

In return, you can look forward to a package that includes a competitive salary, a high-quality pension scheme and generous annual leave plus bank holidays.

Please apply online explaining how you meet the requirements set out in the person specification and job description. CV’s alone will not be considered for this role.
