Workplace Personal Assistant
We are supporting the recruitment of a Workplace Personal Assistant (PA) to support one of our Policy Managers to carry out their duties during the working day.
The Policy Manager has cerebral palsy and requires a PA to provide a combination of secretarial and personal care support to work effectively, safely and comfortably, primarily in our London Bridge office but also when attending external meetings and events as necessary. The PA may also occasionally be required to work from your own home and provide remote support over the Internet.
The Policy Manager works within our busy assistive technology team that pushes to improve access to technologies that help disabled people participate in society on an equal basis by advocating for changes to government policies and services. The team works in close collaboration with internal colleagues and external stakeholders, ranging from Parliamentarians and their staff, government officials, commercial organisations to university academics.
Please note the role holder will not be employed by Policy Connect but instead on a self-employed basis directly for the Policy Manager, who oversees funding for the role from the Access to Work programme.
Leading the development of new policy ideas through evidence and collaboration.
