The Making Every Adult Matter (MEAM) coalition are looking for a Senior Policy Manager to join our team.  The successful candidate will lead our ‘embedded’ policy team across the coalition, working collaboratively to identify opportunities for policy influence, develop clear policy messages and shape our communications to ensure that these messages are heard.

The MEAM coalition is formed of the national charities Clinks, Homeless Link and Mind, with Collective Voice as an associate member. 

Across the country, we support 39 local areas that are designing and delivering better coordinated services for people facing a combination of problems including homelessness, substance misuse, contact with the criminal justice system and mental ill health.

Our vision is for every local area to provide effective coordinated services which can help people reach their potential and contribute fully to their communities.  To help achieve this we use the learning and evidence from the local areas we support to shape local and national policy.

You will share our view that policy impacts everyone and that better policy decisions at national and local levels can have a direct impact on people’s lives. You will be a natural collaborator, working closely with our team and the people and local partnerships we support across the country. 

This post is offered on a permanent contract and will be employed by MEAM coalition partner, Homeless Link.  Homeless Link offers a generous package of benefits including 30 days annual leave, flexible working and a contributory pension scheme. It is our policy for new appointees to commence employment at the starting salary.

We are actively seeking to increase diversity within MEAM and Homeless Link and would welcome interest from people with direct experience of multiple disadvantage, from a black or minority ethnic background and/or with a disability.
