Be part of the vision; be part of the RIBA.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) champions better buildings, communities and the environment through architecture and its members. With a passion to promote a wider public appetite and interest in architecture through its website, exhibitions, talks and four million-strong collections, the RIBA has led the profession since its foundation in 1834, and continues to lead as architects face the challenges of the 21st century.

We believe that good architecture improves everybody's quality of life. The role of the External Affairs department is to campaign for and promote good design and a better built environment, developing and communicating ideas and ways of working that can improve health and wellbeing, increase productivity and create long-term social, economic and environmental value.

Working within the External Affairs team, you will take responsibility for developing policy and managing research and analysis projects. A strong, credible individual with excellent communication skills, you will have substantial experience of research and/or policy development within a working environment. You will demonstrate an ability to think strategically about complex issues and deliver successful projects communicating the impact to a range of audiences. This role will initially focus on sustainability and other technical policy areas; some experience in sustainability is desirable.
