Policy sits across the entire Defra Group. Whichever area you join, you will play an active part in developing and delivering our priorities.

While it is not essential that you are already working in policy, what is important is your commitment to a better future. Whatever your experience, you must be passionate about making the UK a great place to live.

We are looking for people with a specific interest in farming and food from land or sea, or the countryside, rural communities and the environment. Any policies you influence at Defra could be life-changing for the UK, and they may very well be career-defining for you.
