Additional duties include maintaining stakeholder maps for each country to support overall strategy as well as ensuring all communications reflect cultural and linguistic sensitivities and requirements whilst aligning with MPS policy and strategic goals.

Furthermore, you will assist with the promotion of new and existing products and services for individual members and in the B2B and B2G environments

Ideally, you will be educated to degree standard or shall have a relevant professional qualification, coupled with the experience listed above. Importantly, you will have proven experience of raising organisational profile in an international setting and shall have demonstrable experience of implementing engaging international PR strategies and delivering these under agreed objectives.

If you are looking to take on a transformational role that will impact the way MPS operates, then we want to hear from you.
