The Royal College of Speech & Language

Policy Adviser Wales (9 months – Maternity cover)

Do you combine a top policy mind with political interest and experience and the ability and passion to communicate a cause? With health high on the Welsh political agenda, this is a chance to be where the policy action is.

The Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists is the professional body for the UK’s 16,000 speech & language therapists. The Policy & Public Affairs team handles government policy, liaison with Parliaments, Assemblies and Governments, and grassroots campaigning across all four nations of the UK.

The Policy Officer will need to be flexible to undertake policy work in health, education and justice, supporting our strong public affairs profile with the Welsh Assembly and Government. You’ll also be liaising with politicians and their offices direct, and will need to be able to monitor and filter the net and other information sources.
