Job description


Policy and Research Officer (0078)

Do you imagine yourself working on policy and research for a leading human rights charity? Do you want to use your administrative, analysis and communication skills to persuade politicians and decision-makers with clear and evidence-based arguments? Do you want to work with Ministers, MPs and Lords as we work on the big policy issues impacting LGBTQ+ people? If this is you, then apply to join us as Policy and Research Officer at Stonewall.

Stonewall is a human rights charity. We stand for lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer, questioning and ace (LGBTQ+) people everywhere. We imagine a world where all LGBTQ+ people are free to be themselves and we can live our lives to the full.

Over the last 30 years, we have helped create transformative change in the lives of LGBTQ+ people in the UK. Our campaigns drive positive change in public attitudes and public policy. We ensure LGBTQ+ people can thrive throughout our lives by building deep, sustained change programmes with the institutions that have the biggest impact on us, whether we're learning, working, praying or playing sport.

As Policy and Research Officer, you would be a key part of a team of driven, passionate people who are working together to deliver our Free to Be Strategy (2021-25). For this role we are looking for a person with outstanding administrative and relationship-building skills to ensure our work with politicians is effective and reacts timely to developments in Parliament and Government. You will be able to analyse large amounts of information from a variety of sources and have the written communication skills to turn this into high-quality briefings for a variety of audiences. You will have an interest in the work of Government, Parliament and the Civil Service, and be able to adapt your communication style for our broad range of stakeholders. You will be a demonstrably highly-organised individual, able to manage your own time and help co-ordinate the work of a Policy Team as we respond to a constantly moving political timetable.    

Our people make up a vibrant, dynamic community. Lots our staff have a personal investment in the work we do, and many come from marginalised backgrounds. We're proud of this diversity, and of our support for one another – in our teams, our network groups, and our friendships.
