Consultation & Policy Officer
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Consultation and Policy Officer to join our busy Communications Team.
As the Council’s Consultation and Policy Officer, you will be responsible for helping the Council achieve its priorities through designing and implementing effective consultation and engagement activities with key partners and the community. If you have experience of consultation work, a flair for communication and an innovative approach to public engagement and analysis to inform our future work, then we would like to hear from you.
You will have demonstrable experience of engaging with communities to influence public policy, and practical understanding of designing surveys, methodologies and data analysis. Ideally you should also have experience of working in a public sector environment.
You should be flexible and able to contribute to other areas of the Council’s work around policy formulation and implementation. Additionally you will have the ability to analyse and interpret large amounts of data or information.
You will be capable of effective communication with a wide range of audiences both externally and within the organisation and have IT skills sufficient to use Microsoft Office Word, Excel and Outlook packages in your day to day work
Interviews are expected to take place on 8th February 2019.
