The Regional Public Affairs Manager will be engaging political stakeholders across the Midlands and north of England daily. While spending time across the region will be fundamental, the role is based at one of our two Corporate Affairs hubs to ensure collaboration and co-creation across a small and dynamic team.

The role
• You’ll engage with stakeholders on a daily basis. This includes MPs, councillors, Metro Mayors, as well businesses, interest groups and interested third parties.
• You’ll create engaging content to develop regional relationships across multiple channels, alongside our existing media relations offering.
• You will be horizon scanning for new opportunities to engage, and proactively be providing advice to the Head of Public Affairs (and other senior leaders) on regional intelligence.
• You’ll be supporting our specialist teams with parliamentary casework, ensuring timely and accurate resolutions.
• You will have responsibility for a regional budget.
• You will support our Policy Manager and Head of Sustainability by building stakeholder campaigns to support our policy objectives.
• You will work with our Regional Build and Contract teams to identify opportunities to promote the work of Openreach across our core stakeholders, and support their work with our local authorities and devolved administrations.

Skills required
• An excellent understanding of the political landscape and processes, specifically across the Midlands and north of England.
• Top verbal and written skills, as you’ll be responsible for briefing and accompanying senior leaders to stakeholder meetings, or be tasked with representing Openreach at events, conferences and/or public meetings yourself.
• The ability to translate detailed and technical information into simple and clear communications, and to drive digital communication strategies, such as social media and blog posts.
• An excellent networker, who can exercise connections to the benefit of Openreach.
• A passion for the region you’d be representing.
• As this role relies on the building of strong relationships, a significant amount of travel is required, therefore a full, clean, UK Driving License is required.
