IAPH and BPA are hiring London-based advisor
To strengthen our policy work on sustainability and, notably, our presence at the International Maritime Organization (IMO), we have teamed up with our associate member the British Ports Association (BPA) in jointly recruiting a London-based sustainability advisor. For IAPH, the focus will be on the regulatory and capacity-building agenda of the IMO, covering work areas relevant to ports, including maritime emissions, trade facilitation, digital transformation, automation, safety and security. For BPA, responsibilities will include taking on policy work in the ever-expanding area of climate change, the environment and sustainable development, as well as coordinating programmes for UK ports, supporting UK ports in sharing good practice, funding, and opportunities to collaborate or build coalitions. The new colleague will be joining the IAPH Policy and Strategy team, reporting to technical director Antonis Michail, and the team at the BPA secretariat. He or she will be primary based from the BPA’s office in central London, with the option to work from home where suitable. Some UK and international travel may be required, as well as attendance at some networking events and conferences. Applications should be made through the adverts placed in The Guardian and on LinkedIN, where you will also find the full job description. The deadline for applications is 20 January.
