Job description

About the BDA

The BDA is the voice of dentists and dental students in the UK. We are the trade union, professional association and scientific society for dentists. Our work brings dentists together to represent their interests to Government and the NHS and to campaign for policy changes as well as providing support to our members through advice and education. We are looking for a Policy Officer to join our Policy and Research Team. Our office is in Central London and this role will eventually be based there, but for now we are working remotely.

About the role

The successful applicant will support the work of a number of the BDA’s policy-making committees and will assist in the development of policy in relation to general dental practitioners, NHS and private dentistry, and issues particularly affecting early career dentists.

About you

You’ll have a desire to be involved in policy development and influencing policy change, and you will be interested in health policy.

You have a good undergraduate degree or demonstrable equivalent work experience. You’ll have a desire to learn about new issues and ideas and be able to grasp new concepts quickly.

You’ll be an excellent communicator, with the ability to express complex ideas and issues clearly and articulately in writing and speech. Your writing style will confidently adapt to different audiences and purposes, it will be accurate in content and grammar, and you will have a keen eye for detail.

You’ll be well organised, able to manage deadlines effectively and work accurately under pressure. You’ll be comfortable managing the workload coming from a number of different policy-making committees, ensuring that minutes and reports are produced in a timely fashion and implementing agreed actions. You’ll be able to anticipate upcoming work, plan your time appropriately, and ensure that arrangements are made for meetings in good time. You’ll need to work closely with committee’s elected officers, so you’ll have great interpersonal skills and the ability to build and manage professional relationships effectively.

About your team

We’re a team of policy and research professionals, who pride ourselves on our extensive collective knowledge of dentistry and the high-quality secretarial support we provide to our committees and elected officers. We work to improve the working lives of dentists and to support efforts to improve the oral health of the nation. We do this by gathering evidence and knowledge from our elected committees, research, and policy analysis, and we use this to influence, persuade and negotiate on pay, contracts, terms and conditions, and other policies that impact dentists and their patients. We seek policy change through direct engagement with decision and policy-makers, as well as by working with colleagues to influence wider stakeholders, politicians and the public.

We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and are particularly keen to receive applications from ethnic minority applicants who are underrepresented in this part of the BDA.

Benefits include:

  • Generous Pension Scheme
  • Flexible working
  • Health Cash Plan
  • An Employee Assistance Programme
  • Healthy Lifestyle Subsidy
  • 25 days annual leave, 4 BDA Days over Christmas and New Year and 8 Bank holiday

(pro-rated for part-time staff)

Closing date for applications: 12 noon, 1 July 2022 

The BDA would like to thank all candidates in advance for completing their applications. Please note that our selection process normally takes place between one to two weeks from the closing date for the role. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications we normally receive, only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted. Candidates that have not been contacted by our HR team should therefore assume that their application has been unsuccessful.

The BDA is an equal opportunities employer and an Investor in People.
