About Palace Yard

Palace Yard is an independent, non-partisan, cross-sector policy and research institute founded by former House of Commons Deputy Speaker and MP, Natascha Engel. Palace Yard help political decision-makers navigate complex policy areas using real-world data and case studies, by publishing short reports and briefings on the most important policy questions facing Britain today. 

About the Role

The growing team at Palace Yard requires a professional and dedicated Office Manager to play a pivotal role in overseeing operations. This key position requires a confident and experienced administrator to assist with the work of Palace Yard, particularly in its role as Secretariat to an All Party Parliamentary Group.
