E-mobility Manager

Transport & Environment (T&E) is Europe's leading clean transport campaign group. We combine the power of robust evidence and a deep understanding of the transport sector with compelling communications and impactful advocacy. Created in 1990, we have shaped some of Europe’s most important environmental laws regulating the emissions of cars, trucks, ships and planes, and we play a major role in shaping transport policy throughout the continent. Our people work across Europe: our staff in Brussels, Rome, Berlin, Madrid and London collaborate with our 60 member and supporter groups to achieve our mission.

We are currently seeking a highly motivated individual to join our clean vehicles team, focused on accelerating the transition towards zero emission mobility in Europe. The position requires a person with good knowledge and experience of EU policy-making, strong advocacy, writing and speaking skills and the ability to think strategically and communicate effectively.

We offer the chance to help shape policies with huge implications for the future of the automotive industry and the environment – in Europe and across the globe. We offer a competitive salary with a substantial package of benefits and a very high level of flexibility.

The role will involve:

  • Developing strategy, rolling out and managing a pan-European campaign to green corporate fleets across key member states;
  • Advocating vis-a-vis EU and national policymakers (European Commission, Parliament, national governments and local authorities) on upcoming emobility and emissions legislation, e.g. batteries, infrastructure, etc;
  • Building coalitions and coordinating actions with industry and civil society stakeholders;
  • Developing reports, briefings, advocacy and campaigning materials based upon robust evidence and argumentation in order to reduce the climate and health impact of the transport sector;
  • Presenting your work in technical and public events, stakeholder meetings, and to business leaders, journalists, civil society actors and our international network, including regular speaking opportunities in EU technical meetings and public events.

The successful candidate should meet the following criteria:

  • Have 5 years of relevant EU or national policy-making experience – detailed knowledge of European Parliament and European Commission processes is a must;
  • Have a good understanding of the EU automotive market and the key drivers affecting the market (regulations, taxes, carmaker strategies);
  • Possess the confidence to think and act with initiative, to engage and influence policymakers of different stripes, industry representatives, and other stakeholders at the highest level;
  • Have excellent communication and presentation skills, including speaking in public, and an ability to write in English fluently, accurately and concisely;
  • Have project management experience including strong interpersonal and team-working skills and an ability to deliver to tight deadlines;
  • Have the ability to speak at least one other EU language fluently (German is a plus);
  • Have a willingness to travel;
  • Have a personal commitment to sustainable transport and the aims of Transport & Environment.

This is foreseen to be a full-time position based in Brussels. However, flexible working can be discussed, including working (partially) remotely.
