Length of Contract: Permanent
The Ada Lovelace Institute (Ada) is hiring a Senior Policy Adviser, which will sit at the intersection of policy research, public policy, law and regulation, and public affairs. This is a unique and exciting opportunity to join and help develop a rapidly growing dynamic and energetic organisation working at the intersection of technology and society on some of the most pressing policy and technical challenges.
The Senior Policy Adviser is a new role for Ada, and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop the position in post. The primary purpose is to develop and shape UK Government policy and law related to data and AI, to support Ada’s mission to ensure data and AI work for people and society. The post will be managed by the Associate Director for Policy, and work closely with the Senior Researchers leading programmes on Ethics and Accountability in Practice, Public Sector Use of Data and AI, and the Future of Regulation, and with our (incoming) Legal Adviser.
You may have a background working in a policy or regulatory setting, or have extensive experience undertaking policy research and analysis and influencing policy and regulation. You are curious and passionate about the issues which arise at the intersection of technology and society, and committed to bring multidisciplinary, sociotechnical and public evidence to bear on policy making. You’re excited about the opportunity to work with some autonomy in a fast paced and fast-growing organisation, and both running your own projects as well as working across the researcher-led programmes to articulate policy arguments. You have been following key pieces of policy and regulation evolving around data and AI, and enjoy getting swiftly up to speed on new and evolving issues.
