View Vacancy -- Policy and Equalities Officer
About the role
We are looking for a motivated, self-starter to join our dynamic and ambitious Policy Team. Working at the heart of the Council, the role offers the opportunity to work on a wide range of complex and high profile issues and to make a contribution to some of the most pressing policy challenges facing the Borough. You will lead on key strategic policy areas, engaging with Cabinet, officers and our diverse range of partners and stakeholders to shape our borough’s future.
You will need to be a strategic thinker, who can make links across different service areas, weigh up different sources of evidence and develop practical policy options. You will be adept at getting to grips with new policy areas quickly and be politically astute and sensitive. You will need to have excellent analysis and writing skills and be comfortable providing advice and challenge to more senior colleagues. You will be skilled at building strong relationships, encouraging co-operation and acting as the link between multiple contacts, both within and outside of the Council.
Educated to degree-level with experience in public policy and a good grasp of Council operations, you’ll be committed to delivering results through team work and collaboration. You will be highly organised, and able to juggle competing demands under pressure.
