  • Develop and maintain relationships with key officials in government, their staffs and various associations and organisations
  • Assist in drafting comment letters for regulatory agencies
  • Attend and prepare communication from relevant hearings or open regulatory meetings
  • Conduct discrete research projects on pending issues
  • Balance immediate and long-term priorities
  • Work independently and within a global team framework

You need to have:

  • Strong organisational and administrative skills
