  • Manage a team of Policy leaders across the EMEA region and scale operations;
  • Represent the organisation in meetings with policy-makers, civil society and other relevant stakeholders.

Requirements

  • Demonstrable experience in managing policy and/or government relations and advocacy work;
  • Experience in a public policy team of a global internet or technology company preferred (pure government policy experience less desirable);
