Policy Advisers Graduate Development Programme

As a Policy Adviser, your job is to provide the government of the day with the best advice possible to help them to make decisions in the interests of the public we serve. You are there to be the expert on a particular policy area.

The role is varied. One day you might be analysing data, the next you could be in parliament supporting Ministers in a debate. You can expect to write briefings for Ministers and senior managers, and respond to written questions from MPs or members of the public. There’s every chance you’ll be managing challenging projects. Throughout, you can expect to work with all sorts of government departments, external organisations and individuals to debate and shape policy.
