Who are we?

Shaw Trust is a progressive charity on an exciting journey to help five times more people over the next five years. For over 30 years we have supported disabled and disadvantaged people to make positive changes to their lives through training and employment, and our ambitious plans need the right people to help us transform many more lives, in many more ways.

What we do is exciting, fulfilling and diverse and it’s about to get even better. As well as employment services, we work with kids in schools, help offenders in prisons, and empower people to take part in activities that many of us would take for granted.

Working with us gives you far more benefits than a standard package; it gives you the chance to help turn someone’s life around.

The key purpose of the position is to support the charity’s policy and public affairs work. The Policy and Public Affairs Officer will produce evidence-based policy and research work which puts the voice of our service users at its heart. They will also play a key role in disseminating this research to parliamentarians in the UK and devolved governments, to change government policy for the betterment of our service users.
