UK Vacancies

- Senior Policy Adviser, UK

Senior Policy Adviser
 
DEFRA

Location :London

Salary :From £65,000

Closes :23 Nov 2017

Ref :1562444

Ministers at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs are looking for talented, imaginative, free-thinking and orthodoxy-questioning advisers to help shape and implement policy for life after the UK leaves the EU. 

Defra is the department most affected by the UK’s departure from the EU so there are many exciting opportunities to develop new and fresh approaches to policies which affect the lives of everyone, including the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe and our treasured countryside and landscapes. 

The appointment will be for a time-limited period of up to two years and offer you the ability to shape a specific policy area. 

The single most important quality we are looking for is a determination to use this “unfrozen moment” to leave our environment in a better state than we inherited it. 

Whether you are coming from industry, a think tank, another Government department, an NGO or a different sector altogether, we want to hear from you. 

In this job you will provide policy advice directly to the Secretary of State, have involvement with experienced policy professionals and an opportunity decisively to shape the future. We want free thinkers ready to challenge received wisdom and who can argue with passion and authority. 

You will be expected to act autonomously in terms of defining your work and the issues you look at. You will act as a role model to others, and will be routinely interacting with those operating at the top levels of government, as well as influential figures far beyond Whitehall. 

If you are interested in this opportunity, please have a read through of the information pack below and, if you think you meet the criteria, we'd love to hear from you.
