As Public Affairs Manager, you will fulfil an essential role as an advocate for London Stansted Airport, engaging the Government and Parliamentarians on business-critical policy issues from zero carbon growth, to transport connectivity, to promoting its role as an international gateway to the East of England.

Typical duties include (but not limited to):

- Producing and delivering key materials for regional and airport stakeholders, ranging from private briefings to regular policy updates

The ideal candidate will:

- Show a strong track record as a self-starting and highly motivated colleague with experience in Public Affairs.

- Demonstrate commercial awareness.
Prior knowledge of or work experience in aviation or transport policy is not a requirement for the role. The priority is candidates with a highly proactive attitude and willingness to learn.

The role will be based at London Stansted Airport, with some travel between MAG’s airports, and time spent at our central London office and in Westminster.
