Job Description

As the interim Head of Public Affairs at this global, consumer facing digital business, you will provide leadership to the Public Affairs team based across Europe, and develop and deliver Public Affairs strategies and plans that align with the new company-wide business strategy.

Working closely with senior colleagues across the business, you’ll lead and advise on complex regulatory issues and policy developments, and you’ll enable and empower the team to deliver programmes at local levels, creating a shared vision and contributing to the organisation’s sustainable growth plans.

An inspirational leader of people and a seasoned Public Affairs practitioner with experience gained in a regulated industry, you’ll relish the opportunity to lead a business-critical function at both company-wide and local level, and you’ll bring sound political judgement with the proven ability to provide senior level counsel on complex, regulatory issues.  Exceptional communications skills are essential, both written and oral, and you’ll demonstrate a track record in developing and delivering effective campaigns.

Based in UK or Europe, either full-time or part-time. Fluent English language skills essential.
