Position description

£37,804 - £42,368 + Excellent Benefits
12-month fixed term contract

Help to tackle the biggest scientific and health challenges and opportunities facing our society.

From basic research through clinical application to healthcare delivery, the Academy of Medical Sciences champions innovation and transforms patient outcomes. We’re here to promote excellence, nurture a new generation of medical researchers and bring academia, industry and the NHS together whilst shaping policy on the world stage. Our prestige and influence allow us to have a transformative impact on policy and research.

As a key member of the Academy’s close-knit policy team, the International Policy Manager will lead on our international policy activities within the EU, and with countries of scientific strength. Activities may include longer-term policy projects, and a range of scientific symposia, workshops, and lectures, to support our strategic objective to ‘achieve influence and impact beyond the UK to improve health and well-being’. These activities will often be in partnership. We currently have one year’s external funding for our European engagement work but will be exploring opportunities for renewing this funding. On occasions, the post holder may be called to support policy activities that deliver other aspects of our strategic objectives.

We are looking to appoint as soon as possible and will consider secondments.

A team player with a sound understanding of the policymaking process with an interest in or experience of international working, particularly in the EU or countries of scientific strength, you will have a strong appetite to harness connections across research disciplines, sectors and communities. First-rate communication skills and attention to detail are essential. You will be expected to foster excellent relationships with Fellows, external partners and key stakeholders.

Excellent benefits include: generous leave allowance, Academy pension scheme, and travel assistance amongst others. The Academy is usually located in refurbished, friendly offices near Oxford Circus.

We are currently following government guidance, and all staff are working remotely. We will be reviewing this regularly and will return to the office once this is appropriate and feasible.
