Job description

To build a fair education for all, we need to unlock the potential in all children – not just some. Together, we’re making it happen. Every day, our work takes us closer to a better future. But we need to do more. It’s a big challenge – and we need your help to take it on.

The political climate continues to change and this means it has never been more important or more challenging to get tackling this problem on the policy agenda. You’ll work as part of a team to address this by informing education policy and helping to secure government income for our work. You’ll support building relationships with political and policy stakeholders including civil servants, MPs, think tanks and unions and media and PR activity to promote what we do.

  • Do you have experience in public affairs with a good political acumen?
  • Can you tailor information to engage with different audiences?
  • Do you have excellent written and analytical skills?
  • Can you build professional relationships?
  • Do you have experience of using a customer relationship management system in a timely and accurate way?

Yes to the above? Then we want to hear from you. You might be our next Public Affairs Officer.
