WEN Wales is the leading gender equality charity in Wales. Our vision is of a Wales free from gender discrimination, where all have equal opportunity and authority to shape society and their own lives.

As a membership organisation, we work in coalition with our organisational and individual members connecting, campaigning and championing women to realise our vision.


This role is about researching the barriers to gender equality in Wales, developing our policy recommendations around them, and then using the evidence to advocate and influence, ensuring that our work has real impact.

The ideal candidate will have a proven track record of researching and drafting effective writing for a policy audience, ideally in a Welsh policy or third sector context. You will know how to identify and build relationships with key stakeholders, have strong political awareness and the ability to think strategically. You will also need a good eye for detail and excellent self-management skills with the ability to prioritise competing demands in a fast-paced environment.

We particularly welcome applications from candidates who have lived experience of intersecting discrimination, including candidates from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.
