Policy and Stakeholder Coordinator

Job Description

As the Policy and Stakeholder Coordinator, you will develop and maintain a comprehensive view of communication activity being planned for and being delivered across the programme and identify opportunities to collaborate across the programme and with key stakeholder groups.

You will work closely with the programme team on identification and planning for engagements with external and internal stakeholders throughout the delivery of the Local Land Charges Programme, taking responsibility for coordinating, drafting and updating of programme communication materials for various audiences, working within corporate guidelines and delivering to exacting standards.

You will provide information and management reports on programme stakeholder activities and develop activity to address issues or around targeted engagement of stakeholders and will support management of the tactical communications grid on programme communication activity.

This is a demanding role, in which you will need to be able to work under pressure to manage competing priorities and challenging deadlines.

Due to Covid-19, the role will initially be home based so an induction and training will be carried out remotely, with full support from the team.

Ultimately, the role may require regular travel across England and Wales to HM Land Registry offices and local authorities including over-night stays, sometimes at short notice.


You will be responsible for developing and drafting LLC programme documents and briefing materials for a wide range of audiences and coordinating the delivery of several materials, making sure the message is consistent. To be successful in this role, you therefore must be an excellent communicator and have sound experience in drafting wide-ranging materials for various audiences.

You will be proficient in applying plain English principles and have high attention to detail and have experience in using tracking and measurement platforms, such as Google Analytics. You will also have sound organisational and time management skills and be experienced in managing a demanding workload to tight deadlines and an exacting standard. You will be able to work as part of a team whilst also able to use your own initiative.


We’ll assess you against these behaviours during the selection process:

  • Communicating and Influencing
  • Working Together
  • Delivering at Pace
  • Seeing the Big Picture

We only ask for evidence of these behaviours on your application form:

  • Communicating and Influencing




Things you need to know


Successful candidates must pass a disclosure and barring security check.
People working with government assets must complete basic personnel security standard checks.

Selection process details

This vacancy is using Success Profiles, and will assess your Behaviours, Strengths, Ability and Experience.
To apply, you will firstly need to fill out a short application form and successfully complete a Civil Service Verbal Test online. Ideally you should take the test as soon as you can but definitely by midday on 8 March 2021 at the very latest, to allow sufficient time to complete the next stage of the application process.

If you pass the test, for the next stage of the application process you will need to enter your job history into the online application form and complete a Communicating and Influencing behaviour section (in up to 250 words) and a Statement of Suitability (in up to 1000 words), before 11:55pm on 8 March 2021.

Within the Statement of Suitability section you will need to outline your skills and experience for the role and provide details of how you meet the essential Experience criteria detailed in the attached Job Description.

In the event of a high volume of applications for this vacancy, an initial sift will be conducted on the Communicating and Influencing behaviour section and a full sift only carried out on those applications that pass the initial sift.

The final stage will consist of a blended interview which will be conducted as a video interview towards the end of March.

The blended interview will test the behaviours listed in the attached Job Description, as well as the strengths associated with the role. We want to hear your first, unrehearsed, natural response to strength questions, and so we don’t advertise which strengths are being tested.

The best way to prepare for strengths questions is to reflect on what you identify as your own personal strengths, and your preferred ways of working.

Prompt notes may be referred to within the video interview if required.

Please review your application form before clicking ‘submit’ – once you have submitted, you will not be able to amend your application.

Ensure your application form is received by the closing date for receipt of applications – this is 11:55pm on the advertised date.

HM Land Registry is accredited to the Disability Confident Scheme, which denotes organisations which have a positive attitude towards disabled people. Disabled applicants who meet the minimum essential criteria at the shortlisting stage are guaranteed an invitation to interview.

If any candidate requires the panel to consider a reasonable adjustment or there is anything else that they would like the panel to take into consideration, they are asked to notify us of this at application stage where possible or during the process as soon as it becomes a requirement.
