This is a full-time role



At least 86,000 young people approached local councils across the UK for help last year because they were homeless or at risk of becoming so.

Do you have the skills and dedication to help ensure that youth homelessness and its impact reach the top of the political agenda at both a local and national level?

Centrepoint, the leading charity for homeless young people aged 16-25, is looking for a talented Public Affairs Officer to develop our links and advance our policy agenda.

The challenges will be varied, rewarding and involve working across a number of policy areas including affordable housing, welfare reform and skills and employment.

In addition to excellent written and verbal communication skills, the successful candidate will have experience of building links with parliamentarians, councillors and civil servants; and the ability to deliver compelling influencing campaigns and policy events.

If you’re ready for the challenge, join our fun, friendly team and help give homeless young people a future.

In return for your efforts you will receive a competitive salary, training and development opportunities, and a host of staff benefits such as interest free travel loan and stakeholder pension scheme entitlement.
