Policy officer: projects

An exciting opportunity for an exceptional individual with proven experience and potential to join our policy and advocacy team.

You will lead our project work focused on increasing the employment of people with criminal records and access and participation in higher education.

The role includes

  • Supporting and challenging higher education institutions to adopt inclusive policies and practices for applicants and students with criminal records.
  • Supporting and challenging employers to change their recruitment policies and practices, working to prevent unlawful criminal record checks, influencing government policy.

We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds. Applications from candidates who are from racialised communities, have a disability or who are from a less privileged background, are particularly encouraged. We warmly welcome applications from all suitably skilled people regardless of background and we are especially keen to appoint people who have themselves met with and overcome the disadvantages of having a criminal record. A criminal record is not a requirement for this role, nor is it a bar.
