Vacancies at MAG Central, Warwick

MAG (UK) Ltd now seeks one or perhaps two persons to work on its campaign staff. There are two key and distinct roles to fill.

Reporting to the elected Board of MAG (UK) Ltd, the first is essentially a research, analytical and policy role.

The fundamental duties of this will involve detecting, at the earliest possible stage, moves in public policy, technological changes and the output of opinion-formers that might be of significance to motorcyclists and motorcycling. Such moves may emanate from governmental sources in the UK or abroad but equally they might be non-governmental, e.g. campaigns by groups professing to be campaigning in the interests of road-safety, or technological changes that may have significance. Having detected such, your role will be to provide objective analysis on the implications thereof.

The second distinct role is that of a lobbyist whose principal task will be the influencing of opinion-formers at a local and national government level, and also at times on an international basis.

Such a candidate is likely to be South-east based or willing to relocate. He or she will have extensive experience of such work and will be familiar with the workings of governmental institutions.

Both of these positions are available initially on a twelve-month fixed-term contract, fees negotiable. It may be that one person is competent to undertake both roles or equally it may be that two individuals are engaged, one for each. The above is an outline only of what is required. it is not exhaustive and does not encompass every aspect of the roles. Thorough guidance will however be given, the Board’s expectations made clear and fees will agreed between the Board and the successful candidate(s).

Persons having an interest in this should send a full CV to Julie Sperling at MAG (UK) Ltd Central office by email to accompanied by a letter stating why they believe they are suited to the role(s) and what they would bring to the organisation.

 The closing date for applications is 31 August 2013.
