PLP’s first Policy and Parliamentary Officer will help us to influence policy around public law and the constitution and support our work in advocating for change.

Reporting to the Communications Director, you will initially focus on developing parliamentary relationships to promote constitutional reform that is progressive, increases executive accountability, and enhances parliamentary scrutiny.

You will collaborate with Communications, Research and Legal Divisions and work proactively with PLP’s focus area teams to identify and use strategic opportunities to influence and shape policy and stakeholder opinion. You will need to develop excellent working relationships across the organisation as PLP builds its influencing capacity and practice.

You will have a keen interest in our work, some understanding of public law, justice and constitutional reform, and a strong desire to affect change.  A good understanding of the workings of Parliament and excellent communications skills, as well as experience of working in policy and building relationships with parliamentarians and civil society are a must for this post.

The post is initially for 12 months to support PLP’s constitutional reform work and the development of an influencing strategy for PLP’s broader strategic objectives. The role may become permanent if funding can be secured and the longer-term benefit of the role is demonstrated. PLP supports flexible working practices and whilst this post is conceived as a full-time role, part-time hours will also be considered.
