Job Description

In the midst a continually changing environment, no two days are the same in this fascinating organisation that plays a pivotal role in the UK’s economic infrastructure.

Reporting to the Head of Comms and Public Affairs, you’ll develop and manage public affairs campaigns; identify and build relations with key stakeholders and policy makers across the UK including Parliamentarians, Civil Servants, regulators, trade bodies and partner organisations amongst others; produce briefings and consultation responses; and provide senior level counsel both internally and to leading industry figures.

To hit the ground running, you’ll bring a track record in government/public affairs, ideally in financial services or another highly regulated sector, and demonstrable experience of working with legislators and regulators. As ever, strong writing and presentation skills are essential and you’ll be adept at assimilating complex issues and translating into accessible, engaging copy, advising at senior level and making representation to diverse stakeholders and opinion formers.
