They will mobilise quickly to respond to a range of policy and practice developments and ensure that Corporate Parents and relevant stakeholders understand how to effectively support Care Experienced people.

The right candidate will be a highly effective communicator, facilitator, and presenter, and have a keen interest and skill in communicating complex policy landscapes to a wide audience in interesting and engaging ways.
