Job Description
Don’t miss this brilliant opportunity to join a new team that is at the heart of driving the policy and reform agenda for St Helens Council. The borough of St Helens is undergoing a transformation, not just in the regeneration of our towns and economic growth but also as a progressive local authority.

We are focussed on performance and great outcomes for the people of St Helens. We have high ambitions, lots of energy, with an exciting future ahead.

We are now seeking to recruit a creative and enthusiastic Policy and Research Manager, reporting to the Assistant Director – Policy, Change and Reform. Your enthusiasm for an intelligence led approach to the delivery of our borough priorities will be a real asset.
The role provides the opportunity to work across the Council on key programmes, including the ongoing review and implementation of our Borough Strategy to 2030, supporting our work with the Liverpool City Region, and leading on the Council’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) agenda.

You will have an aptitude for thinking strategically about the Council’s work and the way it is delivered, especially in developing briefing notes, strategies and policy and performance reports to advise and support delivery of the Borough Strategy. Plus, your experience in the shaping and development of cross cutting policy and strategy in a local government or public sector environment, providing expert analysis, guidance and advice, communicating, influencing and collaborating will help you shine.

Can you bring energy and enthusiasm to the development of the Council’s approach to Policy and Research? If so, then we would love to hear from you.

Council employees are required to abide by the ethical standards embodied by the 7 NOLAN principles of conduct in public life. These include selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.

We welcome applications from the BAME community.
