The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) is looking for an experienced communications professional to join its team working specifically as part of the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation. This is an opportunity to be part of an exciting international development initiative working to make trade across borders simpler, faster and more cost-effective, creating new business opportunities, enabling greater economic and social development, and reducing poverty.
About ICC and the Alliance
The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) is the world’s largest business organization representing more than 45 million members in more than 100 countries. ICC’s core mission is to make business work for everyone, every day, everywhere. Through a unique mix of advocacy, solutions and standard setting, we promote international trade, responsible business conduct and a global approach to regulation, in addition to providing market-leading dispute resolution services. Our members include many of the world’s leading companies, SMEs, business associations and local chambers of commerce.
ICC is one of the lead organisations of the Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation, a public-private partnership for trade-led growth. Alongside the World Economic Forum, the Center for International Private Enterprise and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), we are redefining the way trade facilitation reforms are implemented. The Alliance brings together governments and businesses as equal partners to identify trade facilitation issues such as customs delays and unnecessary red-tape at borders, and design and implement targeted reforms that deliver commercially quantifiable results.
The Alliance’s work is designed to help governments in developing and least developed countries implement the World Trade Organization’s landmark Trade Facilitation Agreement. The Alliance is supported by the governments of the United States, Canada, Germany, Denmark, the United Kingdom and Australia, and works with private sector partners from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to the world’s largest multinationals such as BASF, DHL, FCA Group, Maersk, UPS and Walmart.
Each host organisation has a distinct set of responsibilities within the Alliance. ICC is responsible for business engagement, developing projects with global business partners, and strategic communications.
