  • Proactively reach out to policy makers and maintain a network across EU institutions.
  • Represent Eurovent positions at stakeholder workshops, consultations, and meetings.
  • Liaise with relevant expert organisations, research institutions, and standardisation bodies.
  • Support and contribute to technical and pre-normative research projects and reports.

  • You are a clear and convincing communicator in speech and in writing.
  • You are comfortable speaking in public and to large groups.
  • You are organised and thorough and take your obligations to others seriously.
  • You manage competing demands well and can work towards multiple deadlines simultaneously.
  • You are a self-starter, take initiative and are comfortable working independently.
  • You manage diverse relationships constructively, diplomatically and with discretion.
  • You are a team player and a team builder.
