I have a voice

IHAV’s vision is a future where those in public policy-related roles are representative of the UK’s population. To achieve this we:
– raise awareness of the roles available such as working for the civil service, civil society organisations or in businesses as part of their public affairs teams;
– provide political education and share professional experience with people currently under-represented in policy-related roles; and
– run a mentoring and internship scheme to help people build-up their experience.

IHAV’s approach is comprehensive, taking people on the journey from not realising the opportunities available to them (there are hundreds of thousands of jobs in policy-related roles) to up-skilling and opening doors for them. By working with a whole range of stakeholders from schools to employers we act as a conduit between young people and employers who want to diversify their workforce by investing in their talent pipeline.

These sectors are growing, even through the Pandemic, offering young people stable, decent salaries and an opportunity to ensure their voices and the voices of their communities are heard by policymakers.
