Are you passionate about using your influencing skills to create social change?

The National Deaf Children’s Society are looking for a Government Relations and Partnerships Adviser to join our friendly and fast-moving Campaigning and Advocacy team. At a time when the world is becoming ever more challenging for deaf children, our work to get them and their families heard has never been more important.

To join our team, you’ll need to be a highly effective networker who is able to persuade, inspire and influence others. You will have excellent knowledge of the national political landscape and parliamentary procedures and be committed to putting deaf children and their families at the forefront of everything you do.

The successful candidate will take the lead on engaging and influencing politicians and opinion formers. You’ll also be responsible for developing new partnerships with key organisations to help deliver our winning campaigns that break down barriers for deaf children.

Weekly travel to Westminster or the London office would be required.
