Job description
Have you had experience in public affairs, delivering change for an organisation? Would you like to make a difference at one of the country's largest charities?

If so you may be the Public Affairs Manager we need!

About the role

We're looking for an experienced public affairs professional with a proven track record of influencing external policy to join our Policy and Public Affairs (PPA) team.

In this job you'll lead a team of public affairs officers, devising impactful strategies and influencing programmes that will help the BHF achieve its policy objectives across a range of areas. You'll work closely with policy colleagues to promote the BHF's mission to beat heartbreak forever, advocating for the 7 million people living in the UK with a heart and circulatory disease.

You'll deliver a pro-active contact programme, engaging with parliamentarians, civil servants, senior health service stakeholders and other charity, health and medical research sector organisations to ensure that the BHF holds strong relationships with key decision-makers and influencers

About you

You'll be passionate about us beating heartbreak forever and enthusiastic about working within Policy and Public Affairs.

With a strong background in political influencing you'll be politically aware, with knowledge of Parliamentary processes and procedures. You'll also have a good understanding of the role of the media in communications and political influencing as well as the role of the BHF and other health and medical research charities in general and particularly in the political arena.

You'll have experience working in public affairs and/or significant experience within parliament/the civil service as well as the following skills and experience:
* A first-class communicator, able to get message across clearly, concisely and persuasively both orally and in writing
* Able to present complex information in an easy to understand way
* Effective interpersonal/networking skills, able to develop strong working relationships with key stakeholders
* Able to work on own initiative, and seize opportunities to benefit organisation
* A good listener, able to empathise with a broad range of people

In return we offer a generous benefits package including flexible working, healthcare cover, dental plan, subsidised gym membership and substantial annual leave.

About us

Everyone who works at the British Heart Foundation is part of something bigger - a mission to beat heartbreak from the world's biggest killers. Heart and circulatory diseases still kill 1 in 4 people in the UK and that's heartbreak on a scale we simply don't accept. Across our offices and stores, we are helping fund research that saves lives. If that's a mission that inspires you, and you have the skills we need, you could be the Public Affairs Manager we're looking for.
