UNESDA Soft Drinks Europe, the European trade association representing the soft drinks industry (www.unesda.eu), is looking to appoint a full-time EU Policy Manager to join its dynamic team in Brussels. UNESDA represents, at EU level, 9 companies (e.g. The Coca-Cola Company, PepsiCo, Red Bull, Suntory Beverage and Food Europe and Refresco) and 23 national soft drink associations.
The successful candidate will be responsible for driving the association’s policy and public affairs work on sustainability and competitiveness under (most notably) the EU Green Deal, EU Circular Economy Action Plan and Farm-to-Fork Action Plan. Experience on sustainability and circularity policies and legislative files is therefore an added value.
The EU Policy Manager will work closely with the rest of the UNESDA team and the UNESDA members to identify, assess, quantify, prioritize and manage issues that affect the soft drinks sector from a reputational and regulatory perspective at EU level. You will lead on the engagement with a broad range of EU stakeholders (including European Commission and elected officials, their staff, Brussels-based NGOs, EU trade associations) to address those issues.
You will have 5-7 years’ experience in EU policy, be plugged into the Brussels policy scene, and have excellent written and oral communications skills in English.
