Senior Public Policy Associate, UK

Public Policy
in London, United Kingdom

Uber is about much more than getting a safe and reliable ride from A to B - we're transforming how people get around cities, think about car ownership and connect to public transport; positively impacting the daily lives of people who value independent and flexible work; and through Uber Eats we're helping people access their favourite meals, freshly prepared and conveniently delivered, as easy as a few taps of their smartphone.

Uber is licensed by over 60 local authorities across the UK. The public policy team is the conduit for Uber's public affairs and government relations across the UK, working with cross-functional colleagues to develop and execute strategies to respond to policy opportunities and regulatory challenges that impact on our business and our riders/partner drivers.

  • Co-ordinate across the 60+ local authorities where Uber is licensed in the UK
  • Raise awareness around Uber's contribution to local communities
  • Work hard but have a lot of fun doing it!

WHAT YOU NEED

  • At least 7 years' experience in local government or public policy, across complex policy areas or regulation ideally within the technology and/or transport sectors.
  • Deep knowledge of the remits and decision-making processes of local authorities, and how to build allies and influence stakeholders.
