The opportunity

This is a brand-new role within UAL’s expanding policy and advocacy team. This is an exciting opportunity to work with the Associate Director, Policy and Advocacy to shape the direction of UAL’s policy and public affairs strategy in the higher education space.

The post sits within the University’s recently formed Social Purpose Group. The group brings together communications, the new Social Purpose Lab, fundraising and UAL’s recently launched Storytelling Institute. Together, the group will enable UAL to change and shape the world for the better. 

About you

The growing Policy and Advocacy team at the university has ambitions to position UAL as the leading institution on creative arts and design education policy, as well as a thought leader on issues affecting the creative industries more broadly.

You will be working with experts throughout UAL who are already actively engaged with public policy as well as building and maintaining partnerships with political stakeholders and decision-makers at local to international levels.

You will build on and develop UAL as a leading voice on the issues facing both creative education, as well as the higher education sector, making and evidencing the case for why the world needs creativity. You will play an instrumental role in fine tuning the way in which we communicate our vision to policy makers at all levels, as well as to leading experts and opinion formers.

You will work closely with other Heads of Policy in the expanding Policy and Advocacy Team as well as leading and supporting departments around UAL in delivering integrated campaigns which represent and promote the university. 

If you have any queries about this role or need any reasonable adjustments for your application, please contact Twinkle Brahmbhatt, Senior Resourcing Adviser via email at Socialpurposestaffrecruitment@arts.ac.uk.
