Permanent, Part-time, 22.5 hours/three days
Job description

We are looking for a deep-thinking, analytical policy or research professional who is passionate about human rights in maternity care and able to cover both the breadth of the issues we need to influence and to become the team expert in a number of areas. You will form a key part of the Programmes team alongside our advice team and our Training Officer, and will be the sole member of staff focusing exclusively on policy. The role will also involve research, campaigning, advocacy and external relations, also working with Engagement team colleagues.

You will be working on issues such as developing new tools to support consent in maternity care, investigating women and birthing people’s experience of choices and interventions from induction to vaginal examinations, exploring how widespread obstetric violence is in the UK, and responding to consultations on changes to clinical negligence and replacing the Human Rights Act.

You will need to be a strong team player who can build relationships and establish credibility both internally and externally, and a self-starter able to progress work independently. We want you to challenge our thinking, develop a good grasp of the issues, put forward your own ideas and drive them forward collaboratively.

Birthrights is a small but mighty charity, so you need to be both strategic and hands-on. You will have the opportunity to make a real difference to women and birthing people’s experience of pregnancy and childbirth.
