The role will deal with a range of environment-related policy and regulation issues working alongside other researchers in the team and will be providing maternity cover for an existing post. MPs deal with a wide range of environmental issues in their role – from specific issues raised in constituency work (water pollution and contaminated land) to issues such as legislation (Environment Bill) and international agreements (for example on sustainable development).
Candidates will need to demonstrate on their application form that they have either a degree or professional qualification with significant relevant content. Otherwise, demonstrating relevant experience will be accepted.
Skills and Experience
Applicants will have demonstrable knowledge of general environmental policy and regulation and experience of one or more specific policy areas (such as air, waste, water or conservation), as well as relevant qualifications or equivalent experience. Experience will demonstrate an ability, or an aptitude, to put together impartial oral and written briefings for MPs and their staff, across the full range of their parliamentary duties, as well as produce material for publication online and in print. The post holder may also support other policy areas covered by the wider team.
Candidates will be expected to complete criterion 1,2 and 3 which are assessed at application stage.
Applications not submitted on the House of Commons website will not be considered. Candidates with any queries should contact the Recruitment team via email at [email protected] or by phone on 0207 219 6011.
