The British Ports Association (www.britishports.org.uk) is a trade association representing the interests of its members in a sector which plays a fundamental role in transport and the economy. UK ports handle 95% of the UK’s international trade and the profile of the sector has never been higher.
We are looking for someone to join our small, dynamic team based in central London. The ideal candidate will have an analytical and rigorous approach to their work with the ability to digest and interpret information from a wide variety of sources. They will be capable of producing clear and concise conclusions from complex documents and datasets. This role will play an important role in supporting the Association’s policy campaigns and wider communications with politicians, officials and industry.
Excellent analytical and written skills are essential. As a small team we also value creativity and expect the candidate to be self-motivated and able to demonstrate an ability to work independently and on their own initiative.
This is a key position within the Association, reporting to the Association’s Head of Policy & External Affairs, and providing credible statistical and robust intellectual support to the Association’s lobbying positions. It will also include working with the Head of Policy & External Affairs to develop the Association’s Port Futures Programme – an ongoing programme of horizon scanning mini-projects and our working groups.
Some experience and interest of policy issues in the transport, freight, planning or marine environment would be an advantage but is not essential. The role will involve some travel within the UK.
