Job description

The Henry Jackson Society (HJS)

The Henry Jackson Society (HJS) is the UK’s boldest think tank and policy-shaping force, constantly ahead of the curve on the big issues of international and domestic importance. We are currently looking for an Executive, Communications & Research Assistant to the Executive Director to help us on the next stage of our organisational journey, which has already taken us to the status of a household name in the international political and media constellation.

When HJS was founded back in 2005, the global environment was very different to what it has become today. Over that time, the threats to the free world internationally and to free societies domestically have multiplied, but there has been one constant: HJS’s willingness and ability to fight for the principles and alliances which keep societies free – working across borders and party lines to combat extremism, advance democracy and fundamental human rights, and make a stand in an increasingly uncertain world.

Reflecting this, our work is focused into two main streams: “Securing our Societies” and “Advancing the Free World”. “Securing our Societies” focuses on threats to free societies within the West, while “Advancing the Free World” examines how the enemies of the free world are operating internationally. Obviously there is interplay between the two streams as the challenges we face are often not as obliging as to lend themselves to easy classification. Our research centres that fall under “Securing our Societies” are the Centre on Radicalisation and Terrorism, and the Centre for Social and Political Risk, while those sitting in the “Advancing the Free World” stream are the Asia Studies, Russia & Eurasia and Global Britain Centres. But these are not exhaustive topics, and we are able to take on many new areas of study as well.

What we are looking for

In order to meet our ambitious agenda and to augment our existing capabilities, we are looking for an Executive, Communications & Research Assistant to support the work of our Executive Director and to help streamline our capabilities.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious candidate to develop their skills and profile further and will suit people ready to take on a challenging and exciting role at an organisation that can offer profile development as it increases in size and scope.

The Executive, Communications & Research Assistant is a key member of the Executive Director’s office. Working closely with other staff, the Executive, Communications & Research Assistant will divide their time between traditional EA functions, and the research and communications needs of the Executive Director.

This role will require a proactive and ambitious approach, able to marry the detail-oriented and fast-paced nature of the job in building capacity for the Executive Director in order to increase support and interest for HJS, its initiatives, projects and policies. They will be involved with many diverse and interesting projects ranging from assisting with funding and project proposals and speech writing. The role will also involve managing social media and events programmes.

This position is an opportunity for a motivated and well-rounded individual to work in a pivotal and challenging role where no two days are the same, and which provides the opportunity for career growth in an organisation looking to evolve domestically and internationally. Above all though, we want you to be passionate about our issues and hungry to make a difference in the public policy world – recognising that this is not a normal 9-5 job where you switch off once you turn off your laptop because (a) you don’t want to and (b) you understand that this is not how the policy world works. The rewards, both professionally and personally are vast, as some of the stellar names who have passed through our ranks are now shining examples of, but they require dedication and commitment to achieve.
