We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.
The Creative PEC working in partnership with Newcastle University and the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) is recruiting for a Head of Policy based at RSA House in London.
We are looking for an individual that is passionate about the creative industries and wants to be part of a growing programme that is transforming their prospects right across the nations and regions of the UK. If this sounds like you, then we want to hear from you.
Joining the team at an exciting time as it embarks on a phase of significant growth, you will have responsibility for analysing the policy implications of PEC research and ensuring that it is relevant to the needs of industry and policymakers. Managing a small team of policy analysts, and working closely with the Head of Communications, you will ensure that the outputs of PEC research are put in a format that is easily digestible and that they find their way to the right people in government and industry.
This role will suit individuals who want to work with rigorous research and data to maximise their policy impact. Although employed by Newcastle University, the role will be based at RSA House in Westminster but with the opportunity for hybrid working.
Since its inception in 2018, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC)-funded Creative Industries PEC has succeeded in bringing about a step change in the quantity and quality of evidence available to UK policymakers seeking to support growth in the creative industries. Funding for a further five years has been awarded, and in the next phase, commencing in June 2023, the PEC will grow the evidence base further, addressing industry and government's current priorities for the creative industries, including those set out in strategy documents such as the forthcoming Sector Vision, while at the same time advancing research into the longer-term challenges and opportunities facing the sector.

For this role we encourage applications from individuals who can complement our existing team. We believe that success is built on having teams whose backgrounds and experiences reflect the diversity of the UK population.
This is a permanent full-time opportunity subject to further funding beyond the five-year AHRC grant being secured.
To apply, please complete an online application and upload a CV and cover letter. Your cover letter is a supporting statement, and you should outline how you meet the essential criteria of the role detailed in the person specification section.
