Our Policy & Research Manager will have a passion for policy and research, an ability to develop evidence-based arguments and solutions, a clear and compelling writing style and the ability to interrogate the impact Creative UK makes through its advocacy, policy development, direct support and investment to businesses and organisations across creative industries. This role involves working with influential colleagues and industry champions to produce policy briefings and submissions on key topics impacting the creative sector and to develop policy proposals supporting growth and sustainability.

To help ground this work, you’ll have the opportunity to account manage a diverse range of members across the creative sector.

You’ll join a fast-paced Policy, Public Affairs and Research team developing insight and engaging decision-makers to positively impact the cultural organisations, creative businesses and talent we engage with every day.
