The Stroke Association is the UK’s leading stroke charity. We campaign and influence to prevent strokes, improve stroke care, fund research and support stroke survivors to make the best recovery they can.
With an ambitious new strategy we have this exciting opportunity within our External Affairs and Marketing Directorate.
You will work with the Head of Policy and Influencing to take a lead role on a number of programmes, you will project plan designated areas of work and contribute to team management. You will act as an influencer, spokesperson and ambassador, and take a specific lead interest in the policy issues of health and social care organisations.
You will represent the Stroke Association’s policy positions to external audiences, including in the media, at conferences, at meetings with civil servants and politicians, locally and nationally, building our credibility and influence. You will feed into and support departmental and cross-organisational activities, programmes and strategies as appropriate.
You will identify proposed legislation and policy changes that will impact on the lives of stroke survivors and the charity, and will draft and deliver evidence based reports, briefings and campaigns that underpin the mission and vision of the charity. You will ensure all evidence-gathering, policy and campaigning activities are monitored, evaluated and reported effectively.
Join us. Together we can conquer stroke.
