Role

We are looking to recruit to a new post of Public Affairs Officer to lead and enhance our work in Holyrood and Cardiff Bay.

You will have excellent communication skills and a passion for tackling social justice issues; experience of working in a parliamentary setting and a knowledge of Scottish or Welsh parliamentary procedure and how they can be used to further campaigns.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a collaborative and innovative team and make a tangible difference to the lives of others.
