The AOP are looking for a Policy Officer to join the Policy team on a permanent basis. The AOP's Policy Team sets the agenda for the profession: researching and developing policy, influencing government and articulating the future for eyecare across the UK.
This is a fantastic opportunity to participate in all aspects of the team's work, with particular responsibility for horizon-scanning and for supporting the AOP's decision-making structures: its Policy Committee and Council. As a Policy Officer, you will be responsible for assisting the Director of Policy and other senior staff in the creation and implementation of policy designed at representing the interests of the organisation's members.
