Social Democrats: Policy Director

Policy Director

Lead our work, especially with the Parliamentary Party, to develop our policies and further the ideals of social democracy, in particular in the area of political economy

The Social Democrats have had considerable success in the last number of years building a new party that puts social democracy to the forefront of Irish politics. We tripled our TDs in the General Election in February, following on from our successes in the Local Elections last year.

We are now seeking to build on that success to expand the reach of the party and our vision for social democracy in Ireland.

We are building a new team to support the Parliamentary Party and the Party. We are looking for a Policy Director who will lead our work developing Party policies, in particular in the area of political economy. Our new Policy Director will oversee the development of policy and positioning within the Party and the cohesion of all Party policies to the ideals and ambitions of our vision of social democracy for Ireland.

The ideal candidate will have a thorough knowledge of political economy, a familiarity with policy across a wide range of areas core to social democracy, and a real desire to shape the political and policy landscape in Ireland to be a fairer, more equitable Republic. We value a strong work ethic and a dedication to bringing about real and meaningful political change.

If you have a passion for politics, a passion for driving far-reaching change and a personal vision for a better, fairer Ireland and how that can be achieved through politics and public debate, then we would really like to hear from you.Check out for further details and how to apply.
