Help with term 'stakeholders' on application form

Post by RP123 » Fri Nov 03, 2017 11:28 am

Hi, This is my first time posting, I have had a look for help with this in previous threads however I couldn't find it anywhere (so apologies for any duplication!)

I am applying for the role of Research assistant and Part time PhD student and I am struggling with the term 'stakeholders'.
In the role description it says 'It will involve working with a range of national and international stakeholders, collaborators, home care providers, people living with dementia and their family members.'
And part of the essential criteria is 'Excellent communication skills with a range of stakeholders' .

In my current role I liaise with NHS trust staff, voluntary organisations and charities and so was going to use this experience to address the stakeholder question. However I just wanted to check that I am interpreting it correctly?

Any help is much appreciated!

Your experience matches it fine, a stakeholder in this sense refers to anyone you liaise with in terms of common interest for a client. You could specify it further to mentioning you've worked with both internal and external stakeholders, so for example; when I worked in a children's charity, I would often lease with our organisations housing team which is internal and then work with the social worker which is external.
