Interested in devolution and the changing face of UK politics? Why not join DevoConnect. We are looking for the ideal candidate to join our growing business.

DevoConnect is a unique agency, led by leading lobbyist Gill Morris, working to shape, inform and influence the UK policy landscape and decision-making processes. We are on a mission to see greater powers and resources devolved away from Westminster and Whitehall.

We are leaders in devolved campaigns and public affairs; building strategic coalitions, consensus and engagement and want to hear from candidates who have proven public affairs skills and understand how Westminster and Whitehall work. If you are an ambitious and dynamic individual who wants to help build DevoConnect’s business, then please get in touch.

You will be an integral member of the DevoConnect Exec Team providing support on a variety of projects, campaigns, events and conferences.

You should have:
• Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
• Demonstrable experience in politics and public affairs
• An interest in devolution and localism
• Ability to multi-task and manage multiple projects at once
• Experience of client management
• Flexibility; a small team means dynamism is required
• Proficiency with Microsoft Office
• Strong organisational skills
• Knowledge of creative software such as Adobe, web editing e.g. WordPress, or marketing tools are beneficial.

We are based in Manchester and positively encourage applications from those who have either lived or worked in the North. However, the nature of our business means that you will be required to travel to cities across England and frequently to Westminster.

This is advertised as a full time position, but for the right candidate some flexibility can be offered so we encourage you to apply and discuss at interview.
