UUK is the collective voice of universities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our mission is to help UK universities be the best in the world, through their research and teaching, and the positive impact they have locally, nationally and globally. UUK’s policy group is a team of around 25 staff working in multi-disciplinary teams to influence policies that matter to universities.
We are looking for two people passionate about making a difference to join the Universities UK policy team. We shape the future of higher education, which changes the lives of students, graduates, researchers, university staff and local communities.
You will be enthusiastic about developing new ideas to influence key decision makers. You will have a flair for evidence-based thinking, and keen to build relationships with stakeholders. You will enjoy working in a fast-paced environment and responding to political developments.
We are recruiting two positions – a policy adviser and a policy intern.
Policy advisers create policy solutions using their research, analysis and engagement skills, and understanding of the political environment. The post holder will build relationships with UUK’s members and stakeholders, explore the evidence base and communicate their findings to thought leaders. Policy advisers have strong influencing skills, the ability to work on multiple projects at any one time and an interest in public policy.
We are also welcoming applications for policy interns. Policy internships are six-month fixed-term positions. This role is aimed at someone new to the world of education policy. In the internship you will build skills in areas related to policy development, written communication, understanding the policy context and stakeholder relations.
The post-holder will combine working from home with attending UUK’s London Office at Woburn House, 20 Tavistock Square (near Euston station) to network and build relationships both online and in person. UUK’s policy group is currently trialling office-based working on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and this is subject to review.
Interviews are expected to take place in late February and early March 2023.
