Working closely with the head of policy at this influential membership body currently going through a period of sustained growth, you’ll play a pivotal role in developing policy and promoting the industry in line with the roll out of business strategy.

In addition to deputising for the head of the division, you’ll enjoy extensive contact with members, preparing responses to consultation papers and briefings, and monitoring public policy to ensure that members are fully informed. Providing secretariat support for committees, you'll  prepare collateral and you’ll enjoy additional input into roundtables and thought leadership events as well as attending external meetings with diverse stakeholders.

Strong project management skills are a must and you’ll be skilled at building relations with diverse stakeholders and making representation.
