Location: London

Salary: £31,000, inclusive of inner London weighting

Job Details

The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) is recruiting a Public Affairs Officer to join our busy team, supporting our high profile advocacy programme for reproductive rights and healthcare across the UK.

BPAS is a reproductive healthcare charity that offers pregnancy counselling, abortion care, miscarriage management, contraception and testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) to 100,000 women in the UK each year. Next year, we will be launching a not-for-profit fertility service to provide ethical, evidence-based, person-centred care.

Reflecting our growing presence, this new role will support our work to increase access to and availability of a wide range of reproductive healthcare, help develop our political campaigns for women’s reproductive choice, and contribute to our public policy development.

You will be working closely with parliamentarians and elected representatives in the devolved nations to advocate for reproductive choice, as well as with external stakeholders and healthcare providers.

You will need experience of political involvement in Westminster or one of the devolved nations, public affairs work, or policy development – ideally in the women’s or human rights, or healthcare sectors. You will work well as part of a small team and be confident enough to start working remotely while Covid-19 restrictions are in place.

All applicants must be pro-choice.
