Job description

Prospectus is excited to be partnering with Centre for Cities to source a Senior Policy Officer who will join their team. This role will lead on gathering intelligence, researching ideas and developing proposals with the purpose of setting out what needs to change to help urban areas thrive. COVID has had a significant impact on urban areas and Centre For Cities is playing a vital role in advising on how areas can recover and level up once it is over.

As a think tank, their policy proposals are fundamental to their ongoing success and impact as an organisation. They are now seeking to appoint an outstanding individual to work across the organisation, including with the senior management team, to research, develop and hone their proposals for policy at local and national level.

The ideal candidate will live and breathe policy and have direct experience of developing and implementing policy in the public sector, nationally or locally. You will be a self-starter, happy to engage with colleagues and external stakeholders to build and test the most compelling policy positions for the organisation and help them to make the case for their adoption by local and national government. We are looking for someone bursting with ideas, with a thorough-going approach and a deep-seated desire to effect change through their work.

Centre for Cities is able to discuss flexible working options as well as offering other benefits.
