Project Executive – Markets, Enterprise and Trade (Ireland/UK)
Due to recent business development success on EU-funded framework contracts (FWCs), Landell Mills will lead a consortium on Lot 7 of Services for EU’s External Action (SEA), which covers private sector development and trade. We are therefore looking to recruit a Project Executive to support the Markets, Enterprise and Trade (MET) Division. The FWC will deliver individual assignments defined and contracted through specific contracts, using short-term expertise often mobilised at short notice.
In this busy and varied role, the Project Executive will support the Division in its acquisition and implementation of specific contracts under SEA Lot 7 and across the MET division portfolio. The Project Executive will be involved in both project management and business development, with a focus on the areas of economic analysis, investment climate, private sector development, trade, and employment and labour standards.
The MET Division seeks to promote economic and business development with a strong focus on sustainable trade and investments, inclusive growth and decent work, and women’s economic empowerment, maximising impact and long-term change for people. Our work predominantly covers the following inter-related sub-sectors: investment climate and business enabling environment reform, trade facilitation and trade promotion, market systems support, green economy, and gender equity and social inclusion in trade. Some examples of our current MET portfolio include strategic contracts for the EU (DG INTPA), such as the Regional Technical Assistance Facility in support of Job Creation and Investment in Eastern Africa, Southern Africa and Indian Ocean, and for the UNDP in Malawi with the Green Economic Transition Facility.
The position will be based either in Ireland (Blackrock, Dublin) or the UK (Trowbridge, Wiltshire). In the UK, there is also the option to work at our Bristol office. We operate a hybrid work from home / office culture, but we would expect the chosen candidate to have considerable day-to-day in person contract with both the MET Division team and the FWC Division team. Overseas travel will be an integral part of the job.
