Our fast-paced, award-winning advocacy team deals with the national media and prominent politicians on a wide range of issues on a daily basis. We’re looking for a diligent and hard-working Communications and Public Affairs Assistant with excellent communications skills and an enthusiasm for politics to contribute to our work.
In return you’ll get the chance to develop both public affairs and communications skills in a fascinating organisation, with lots of opportunity to stretch yourself and learn from experienced colleagues.
The ABI is one of the UK’s most modern and respected trade bodies. We represent the UK insurance and Long-Term Savings industry, a sector which employs around 300,000 people and contributes billions in taxes to the Government. Whether it’s saving into a pension or insuring your car, nearly everyone in the country buys our members’ products at some point, one of the reasons our work is so high-profile.
Representing this industry to policymakers, politicians and the media is no simple task. It takes a sharp brain, an ability to make complex subjects sound simple and buckets of hard work and determination.
This role will give you the inside track on how we represent one of the UK’s biggest, most successful industries to Government, regulators, the media and the wider public.
On a daily basis, you’ll undertake political and media monitoring and report back to ABI staff. You’ll learn how to draft briefings for external audiences and work with the events team to organise political speakers. You will also work on the front line of the press team – fielding calls from the media, drafting press lines and dealing with enquiries – and will be part of the on-call media rota.
