The Government and Parliament team sits at the centre of Ofcom. The team is the central unit in driving Ofcom’s engagement with Government and Parliament. We act as the bridge between Ofcom and its work as an independent body, and the wider public policy and political developments that affect the sectors we regulate.
The team’s role is to support the Board, senior management and the wider organisation to ensure Ofcom acts as an effective regulator which understands and participates in public debates about how best to make communications work for consumers. The work of the team is fast paced, and in that context we are tasked with improving the effectiveness of Ofcom’s dealings with external stakeholders and with maintaining Ofcom's reputation.
We are looking for an experienced policy or public affairs professional to join our team. You will help lead and shape the work of team in relation to a portfolio of Ofcom’s work, and directly manage relationships with some of our key stakeholders in Government and Parliament. You will work collaboratively with colleagues throughout Ofcom to shape, deliver and present our work effectively.
You will have experience of working in or very closely with Government, have an understanding of shaping and communicating policy and be accomplished at building strong relationships quickly.
We are a team which embraces flexible working, and are also open to applications from job shares and part-time applications.
