Contract, Full-time
Job description

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and determined individual with a track record of influencing policy to achieve real change.

The policy officer role is a new post created to support the charity’s work to reform policy and legislation to reduce the stigma and discrimination that people with criminal records face. With a focus on reforming the criminal records regime, the policy officer will build on Unlock’s recent work – including successful legal intervention in the Supreme Court, the #FairChecks movement and work on the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 – to influence policy makers and key stakeholders to secure changes to legislation and government policy.

The role also includes supporting the development of Unlock’s strategy of using the law for achieving change in policy, as well as building on the charity’s previous research to develop a strategy that strengthens the evidence-base for changes in policies and practices that will have a positive impact on the lives of people we exist to help.
