The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders is looking for an organised, friendly, self-motivated and inquisitive individual to join a small team of membership/section managers in London.

We believe this is an exciting opportunity to work across a number of automotive sectors at one of the UK’s leading trade associations and invite applications from those interested in developing the interests of our members as well as growing our membership base.

Reporting to the senior section manager and working alongside them and two other section managers, the successful candidate should have an enthusiastic, open approach and be willing and able to pick up new topics quickly.

Educated to degree level, we would like to hear from candidates who appreciate the very rich and diverse nature of SMMT membership and the broad range of issues that arise from their activities. 

Candidates should be comfortable in communicating with and to members as well as other associations, government departments, funding bodies and other stakeholders who help to shape a successful UK automotive sector.

Candidates should have some prior experience in an account management or client relationship experience?

The successful candidate will take up the reigns of one small section directly, helped by the senior section manager, and provide support across a number of others ensuring an opportunity to develop knowledge and contacts across a varied spectrum of activities and companies.

There will be some UK travel and the potential for travel to Europe.
