The European Affairs manager represents the interests of the Dutch logistics and transport sector in Europe. For TLN, you are the first point of contact for European politics. As process manager, you are responsible for setting the agenda and conveying key information – together with the PA advisor and the international cluster manager – during the official lobbying engagements and interactions with other stakeholders. You represent the organisation’s ambassador to the European Parliament, the European Commission, umbrella and industry organisations, etc. You manage the European lobbying files, providing comprehensive information and strategic advice to the board and the organisation on positioning, progress, and strategy. Implementation of these strategies is also within your purview.
In collaboration with the PA Advisor Europe (0.5 FTE) and the cluster manager International, you are responsible for devising and implementing the European part of the TLN’s lobbying strategy. This collaboration occurs in close alignment with the organisation’s regional and national activities. You are in charge of maintaining continuous coordination with your team, ensuring that dossiers from a regional, national and European perspective are seamlessly integrated. The European Affairs Manager reports directly to the Public Affairs coordinator. TLN’s primary office in the heart of Brussels is your home base. Your presence at the Zoetermeer office will be required once a week (on Mondays) to meet up and liaise with your colleagues.
