Voi Technology is now looking for a Public Affairs Manager in the Nordics. Our vision is cities made for living - free from noise and pollution. We work to realise this vision by offering a fun, sustainable and safe product that integrates with cities and the existing transportation ecosystem. We can only achieve our vision by working closely with city stakeholders, including city officials, local politicians and public transport authorities and operators.
As a part of the policy team you will get a central role in the company, driving forward and influencing critical regulatory and political processes at local and national level. As cities are introducing licensing and tendering for micro-mobility, seizing commercial opportunity by monitoring, planning and writing tenders will also be part of your role. You’ll work in close collaboration with the cities, and will also be responsible for policy partnerships and compliance in the markets you cover.
- Build and manage relationships with key city and Government stakeholders, and build partnerships with public transport operators and authorities.
- Partake in planning, writing and quality check tender proposals.
- Work with relevant third parties to help Voi realize its vision and deliver a safe and sustainable product, including:
- Regular check-ins with key stakeholders to understand concerns and identify areas where we can improve.
- Organizing and managing industry driven initiatives and roundtables.
- Collaborate with the rest of the policy team to ensure our arguments are solid and backed by evidence.
- Drive cross-functional cooperation on key topics to make Voi a thought leader within safe and sustainable micro-mobility.
