POLICY MANAGER (maternity cover)

EVAW’s policy manager plays a critical role in delivering EVAW’s work, including developing policy proposals and positions across a broad range of areas related to violence against women and girls, to inform and support our campaigning aims. Working independently, the post-holder will support our evidence-based campaigning, generate and contribute to critical policy discussions, and support the organisation’s broad lobbying and influencing strategies.

Key tasks include staying up to date with the VAWG policy landscape, producing briefings and reports, identifying key and emerging policy areas, collecting relevant evidence, and building EVAW’s responses to inform our campaigns – often through engagement with members and stakeholders.

Candidates are likely to have some experience in policy and/or research, on VAWG or a related field connected to social justice, human rights and equalities, and will be seeking an opportunity to work in a highly impactful, agile and dynamic feminist organisation.

A background in VAWG will of course be an asset, but regardless you’ll need to show us you can keep abreast of the latest research, data, policy intelligence and political developments, and identify emerging trends in the VAWG policy environment as well as opportunities to pursue the organisation’s aims. The applications which stand out in this process will be from those who deeply believe in what we do.


We guarantee an invitation to interview for disabled applicants who demonstrate, within their application, sufficient evidence to meet the essential criteria for the job.

Please note we are only able to consider applicants who are able to demonstrate their right to work in the UK. 

EVAW aims to be an anti-racist, values-centring employer. We are seeking out individuals with dedication, aptitude and the ability to deliver meaningful campaigning work. If you have strong knowledge and experience related to any of the significant parts of this job but are not sure that your profile fits in a ‘traditional’ way, please do consider making an application, or get in touch to discuss your background and we will try to give you a steer on the job and what’s involved.
