The Job
This is a busy and stretching job, ideal for someone looking to build a local government career at senior levels. You’ll oversee the delivery of the DCN’s strategic priorities – ensuring we’re producing strong research, evidence and policy, influencing our communications strategy, and working closely with specialist policy officers in our member councils. You’ll support the Director to drive forward the DCN’s strategy. There’ll be a strong emphasis on building new relationships with external partners.
The Person
We’re looking for an ambitious and highly motivated individual with good political antennae and the ability to work collaboratively with a wide range of senior leaders.
• You’ll have strong experience of developing and delivering policy at a senior level.
• You’ll be adept at analysing complex problems and diverse information to produce compelling arguments.
• You’ll have excellent oral and written communication skills. You’ll be able to work independently and confidently represent DCN to our members and external audiences.
• You’ll be a supportive manager and a strong leader.
• Experience of working in local government isn’t essential but you’ll be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the policy and delivery priorities for district and unitary councils.

• A generous annual leave entitlement
• Opportunity to join the Local Government Pension Scheme
• Incremental pay award (awarded annually in April after one year’s service)
