Policy Intern

Policy Group

Location:   London
Salary:  £20,111 per annum
Fixed Term
Post Type:   Full Time
Closing Date:   Wednesday 17 August 2022
Interview Date:   See advert
Reference:   UUK03822

This role is an exciting opportunity to join the Policy Group of Universities UK (UUK), the voice for universities in the UK.

The Policy Group at Universities UK plays a leading role in influencing higher education policy nationally. We do this working with our 140 members to develop evidence-based policy positions, and engaging with key stakeholders to ensure our universities can thrive in the years ahead, in line with our strategic objectives.

Our Group of around 25 staff work in multi-disciplinary teams to influence a diverse range of policy issues that matter to universities. Some of our recent priorities are set out here.

Your role will be to support the Policy Group in this mission and to work across a range of priority projects as required. The post-holder’s programme of work will be developed in consultation with their line manager upon appointment.

The post-holder will have the flexibility to work from home where appropriate. However, there will be some requirements to attend UUK’s London office at Woburn House, 20 Tavistock Square (near Euston station) as we feel there is value to members of staff being in the office to interact with colleagues, support new starters and attend some meetings face to face. At the moment UUK’s policy group is trialling office based working on Tuesdays and Thursdays. This is subject to review.

Interviews are expected to take place on 05 September 2022.
