As the Senior Policy and Parliamentary Officer, you will work closely with colleagues in the central Policy and Public Affairs team as well as Sustrans in the rest of the UK.
You will focus on supporting the building and delivery of our engagement with parliamentarians, decision-makers and other key people, primarily in the UK Parliament and government.
You will help deliver on Sustrans’ two strategic priorities of ‘Liveable Cities and Towns for Everyone’ and ‘Paths for Everyone’. To do this, you will support the development of policy across Sustrans and help key contacts understand the value of creating liveable, vibrant places where it is easy for everyone to access the majority of what they need through walking, wheeling and cycling.
You will build and manage internal and external relationships with key people such as elected MPs, civil servants in Whitehall, peers and others within government, helping to both promote and draft policies such as coordinating our spatial planning work.
As part of this role, you will be a representative for Sustrans at events with parliamentarians, engaging with select committees and All Party Parliamentary Groups. In addition, you will write blogs and articles for internal and external publications to raise awareness of our work.
This role will require travel and work at locations as necessary to undertake projects on behalf of Sustrans. Candidates should be based within or close to London with regular travel expected to a nominated Hub/office base in London.
You should have exceptional communication skills, with the ability to easily build relationships with a wide range of people. You will use these skills to engage and influence key people in Westminster, Whitehall and across the UK.
You will be able to take complex information and distil it into short, compelling briefings that can engage an audience. You will also have experience in researching and communicating public policy across a varied range of issues.
We ask you to demonstrate your knowledge of political processes and have an understanding of current transport and planning issues to help you advocate for sustainable transport and better places in government and Parliament.
