Policy & Communications Manager

ARCO is the national body representing operators of housing-with-care schemes for older people. Our vision is for all older people to have the option to live in high quality ‘Integrated Retirement Communities’ in their later years, which maintain independence, foster friendships and improve wellbeing. They also reduce older people’s need for health and social care.

Our members are a combination of charities, private companies, and housing associations – what unites us is a joint commitment to older people’s well-being, providing choice, enabling independence, and delivering high-quality housing and services.

We are looking for someone who will be an essential part of our Policy and Communications team. You will be happy to turn your attention to a wide range of tasks, whether briefing a journalist, organising a report launch, liaising with an MP, analysing a government consultation document or building a buzz around our sector on social media.

This is a rare opportunity to develop your skills right across the breadth of PR, policy, public affairs and influencing at an organisation that works across housing, social care and other spheres.

In this role, you will be making a difference today. But the real impact of your work will be measured by whether our sector reaches its potential in 10, 20 and even 50 years’ time. You will be busy helping us lay the foundations to redefine the future of housing, care and support for our ageing population.

To apply please send your CV (maximum 2 sides A4) and a cover letter addressing how you meet the essential criteria for this role (maximum one side A4) to by 4pm on 31 March 2023.

Any queries regarding the role should also be sent only to this email address.

ARCO is not able to offer visa sponsorship and therefore all applicants for this role must have the right to work in the UK.

We request no contact from agencies.
