Programme officer – Mayors office for policing and crime
As someone with no experience of policy this was a good explanation of steps to consider in policy development.
Policy Advisor – Electoral commission
Getting an opportunity to test out some of the different skills talked about through the use of case studies; getting a greater understanding of the whole policy process so that I can understand how the government departments that we, as an organisation, work with approach policy making and where we fit into that or can add value.
