We are looking for someone who is enterprising, flexible, team oriented, well-organised and able to pick up new issues quickly. The role will require close coordination with multiple colleagues across the Germany Network, in London, as well as DIT’s new European Market Access Centre. You will need to develop effective relationships with teams across the International Trade network, as well as with offices of key businesses, trade associations and other stakeholders on behalf of DIT Germany.


The successful candidate should have strong analytical, research and communication skills, be highly organised and able to juggle competing demands. You will have the chance to work with colleagues across the Embassy and the DIT Europe Network, as well as take part in our broad and varied corporate and learning and development opportunities.
