“ You will be part of something exceptional” Philip Rycroft, Permanent Secretary, Department for Exiting the European Union


This is an exciting opportunity to take on a leadership role in the high-profile work that will shape Britain’s future. As Britain prepares to exit the European Union, you will bring new thinking to the challenges that we face, embracing our exceptional context to deliver innovative solutions and support the UK’s negotiating strategy with the EU.


Following the choice made by the people of the United Kingdom on 23 June 2016, Britain is leaving the European Union. The Prime Minister established the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) in July 2016. The Government has set out that it wants to build a deep and special partnership with the EU. DExEU works to achieve a successful outcome in the negotiations and domestic preparations to ensure the United Kingdom seizes the opportunities and meets the challenges of EU exit.


As a Senior Policy Adviser in DExEU, you will be at the heart of our important work focusing on policy development, delivery and implementation. Ours is a fast-paced and collaborative environment which respects and values diversity and where dynamism rigour and professionalism are valued highly. We are seeking to recruit collaborative and dynamic individuals to a number of teams across the department. The roles require people who have a strong sense of public service, are comfortable dealing with complexity, who are able to work at pace and are resilient. To support you to achieve your best, a comprehensive learning and development offer available to you.


In the Priority Projects Unit, you will lead on complex, cross-cutting and high priority areas of work, working alongside policy directorates on a series of projects. Overseeing the development of new policies, (including delivery and analysis), you will take on short-term projects ranging from one to four months.


In all teams, your work will be varied and vital. It will include anything and everything from significant policy delivery and analysis, through to short-term problem-solving on urgent issues. Comfortable working in a changeable environment, you will enjoy moving between teams and getting to grips with a broad array of challenges, learning the details as you go.


Every EU Exit policy decision needs to work well for our diverse community. As such, we are seeking proactive team-players from a broad array of backgrounds. Meticulously organised and highly motivated, you will also have fantastic people and project management skills.


To be equal to this unique challenge, you will have great communication and relationship-building skills, and you will be adept at writing reports, translating complex information for a variety of audiences. It would also be beneficial if you have experience in one of the following: management consultancy, an understanding of the implications relating to EU/UK interests, an understanding of EU regulations, economic skills or previous experience of working with or in the Government.


In turn, you will benefit from ‘The DExEU Difference’ which is our offer and commitment to help you use your time with DExEU to develop your potential and, longer term, to achieve your aspirations.
