Job Description

We are looking for a pro-active policy professional to help shape and drive our financial services policy agenda, with in depth knowledge of financial services consumer issues, particularly for those who are potentially vulnerable.

Reporting to the Policy Manager (Financial Services), you will play a leading role in our policy team, using your expertise and knowledge to ensure our policy work is authoritative and relevant to the complex financial services landscape.

Working as part of the Policy and Influence (Financial Services) team, you will develop policy positions and solutions that work across the four nations of the UK. You will work closely with colleagues in Evidence and Macmillan’s service delivery teams to ensure our policy work is highly credible and grounded in the diverse everyday experiences of people affected by cancer and professionals.

You will have experience of delivering high-level influencing in this area, perhaps gained through working at a regulator, firm, financial sector body or charity. You will be able to demonstrate experience of working as part of a team to develop and implement influencing objectives. You will be a skilled communicator with a proven ability to build and maintain effective stakeholder relationships.
