Head of public policy


Are you passionate about the church having a voice in public life? Now more than ever, Christians need to speak into a vast range of issues in government, politics and the media.

The Evangelical Alliance is the largest and oldest body representing the UK’s two million evangelical Christians. For over 170 years, we have been bringing Christians together and helping them to listen to, and be heard by, the government, media and society.

We are seeking an individual to head up our public policy work across the UK. You will work with public policy officers in Wales, Northern Ireland, Scotland and England (Westminster) to analyse government policy and develop appropriate responses and proposals.

You’ll have significant experience of lobbying or working with political decision-makers/policy advisers as well as considerable research experience which includes the analysis of complex written materials. You’ll have excellent knowledge of the political structures and processes in Westminster and how they interact with those of the devolved parliaments and assemblies.

You’ll be a clear communicator, and a networker with existing relationships in the political and policy environment and you’ll be at ease communicating evangelical values and principles.

You’ll have a strong instinct for analysing political ideas and debates and interpreting them from a biblical perspective clearly and concisely.

Most importantly, you’ll be actively engaged in an evangelical church and be comfortable sharing about Jesus and your relationship with Him, applying your faith to your areas of expertise.

If you have less experience but a passion to work for us and can demonstrate potential for growth, we would welcome a conversation.
