We're looking for a highly literate individual with experience of writing policy and procedure to a high standard at all levels of an organisation to join us as a Policy Advisor.
The UK has a housing problem. This affects every one of us, because housing is the foundation of the society we live in. Catalyst is part of the solution. You could be too.
One of the UK's leading housing associations, Catalyst is here to make a purposeful difference by providing housing solutions for those who can't afford a home without our help. We offer a wide range of homes, for rent, part ownership or purchase. By doing so, we build more than homes - we build communities. Put simply, we're committed to our social purpose - in every part of our organisation. And, we always seek to do better. If you do too, read on.
Drafting, developing and maintaining organisational policies and procedures that comply with legislation and regulation and promote good governance and acting as a policy consultant is what's required here. Specifically, you'll help different business areas across Catalyst to develop, review and write policies, procedures and supporting documents and processes. We'll also rely on you to support the development and maintenance of a comprehensive policy framework that reflects best practice. Essentially, it's about providing excellent customer service to senior managers and colleagues and collaborating cross-functionally to ensure policies and procedures are effective and reflect an organisational perspective.
Having an impressive track record in policy related roles, you can bring a strong understanding of how policies and procedures work between teams and departments to support good governance and compliance. You also have a proven ability to develop policy responses that meet competing requirements and are quick to acquire knowledge of, and expertise in, business areas outside your existing experience. Researching complex issues swiftly and accurately also comes naturally to you, as does communicating your findings in a clear and concise way. What's more, you're proactive, have excellent administrative, organisational, planning and prioritisation skills and work well both alone and as part of a team.
