Policy advisor

Initial term:  Permanent

Location:  London (Westminster)

Closing date for applications:  noon, Wednesday 8 August

Interviews:  Week beginning 12 August


This is an exciting opportunity to join a high-performing team of policy advisors in one of the most influential and high-profile trade associations operating within the health sector.  It is a crucial role within the organisation, helping to influence the national policy agenda on behalf of NHS trusts and support providers in addressing key policy and strategic challenges. 

In particular, the post holder will lead the organisation’s work on NHS workforce policy but they will also work flexibly to contribute to a range of wider policy projects across the team.  This area is high profile as workforce is now the single biggest risk facing the NHS. Our work in this space drives much of the support, influencing and voice work carried out on behalf of NHS trusts and foundation trusts to improve care for patients. 

Background knowledge of workforce or provider policy is not essential for success in this role - the key requirements are to have an appreciation of the policy implications of the portfolio and the ability to analyse relevant information, turning policy in to insights and outputs internally and externally.

The role will be of interest to all applicants who wish to broaden their experience of health policy, and gain a better understanding of the NHS provider sector.
