Policy advocacy lead

Location: London (Hybrid)

Salary expectation: £35,000 to £40,000

Application deadline: Fri 1st March

This is a full-time role

As we enter an election year, there are new opportunities to influence policymakers’ attitudes to law-and-order, amongst the continuing controversies surrounding the use of stop and search, and debate amongst police chiefs, crime commissioners, campaigning groups, and community organisations over how best to hold officers to account for the use of the power.

The climate is ripe for someone with a deep interest in these issues, a know-how of the political landscape, and a desire to improve police practices and civilian safety using policy tools to join us.

About the role

We are looking for someone with experience of effecting policy change at the local and / or national level, the skills to lead campaigns and analyse research, and an ability to navigate the policing landscape.

Self-motivated and able to work independently with little supervision, they will be responsible for driving and implementing policy and campaign projects in line with our overall strategy and have a vision for how our research and community engagement work is promoted in the policy arena.

The postholder will also have a history of forging positive relationships with influential individuals in their policy career, and a connection to marginalised peoples affected by the sharp end of stop and search policing.

We are especially interested in hearing from individuals from certain backgrounds and identities whose lived experience is vital to a progressive, antiracist cause, so we welcome applications from marginalised groups, especially people of colour and other ethnic minorities, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Disabled people, working class folks, and / or those who have been historically excluded.

Deadline: Fri 1st March
