Senior Policy Officer wanted

"You connect the Dutch wind sector with politicians and policymakers in the Netherlands and bring the right story to the right place."

What are you going to do?

Climate and energy security are high on the political and social agenda. Wind energy will become the engine block of the new energy supply. The ambitions of the wind sector are therefore high. To accelerate and guide the energy transition, we are looking for the right person to strengthen our team of policy officers. Someone who is the connecting factor between the association and our most important stakeholders such as ministries, provinces, municipalities, other industry associations, NGOs and companies. We are looking for someone who supports the NedZero agency to bring the right story to the right place - in close consultation with the members.

As a policy officer you are responsible for a number of sub-areas of the entire association agenda in terms of content and process. You fulfill the role of secretary for a number of committees and working groups. As secretary you are responsible for the process surrounding committees, so you are responsible for drawing up policy positions and helping to solve bottlenecks in policy and regulations. In concrete terms, you do this by writing “position papers”, responses to official government documents, and you also express our views in various forums.

You are able to listen to the opinions of members, are able to weigh up interests and channel member input well. As secretary you form a close team with the chairman of the relevant committee. In addition, you work closely and coordinate carefully with your fellow policy officers, the board secretary, the communications manager and public affairs manager. Your report hierarchically to the director of the agency and functionally to the board secretary.

What are you taking with you?
