Policy and Advocacy Manager

Would you like to join a small, purposeful organisation that uses digital tools to enable citizens to engage with democracy and hold powerful governing institutions to account? mySociety is looking for a Policy and Advocacy Manager to develop our policy work and improve our impact, as part of a nimble, digital-first, and entirely remote UK team.

As part of the Impact and Engagement Team, you will be developing and leading our policy approach, and linking this to our wider organisational strategy. Primarily, in the Climate programme, you will lead on identifying and shaping our response to emerging policy trends at the intersection of local governance, climate action, data and digital democratic engagement. You will monitor and identify key advocacy targets and build effective relationships with them, and seek opportunities to leverage UK government efforts. You will work closely with our programme teams to ensure their work is informed by current policy, and to use their expertise and knowledge to inform mySociety’s own policy positions. You will work with colleagues leading on research, communications and events to participate in research activity, produce policy papers and briefings, draft content for our communications channels, and present our positions publicly.
