Working alongside the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), the AGI has never been more enthusiastic about advancing the understanding and use of geographic information.

Together, as two organisations with so many common goals, we’re now looking for someone who can help raise our mutual profiles and broadcast our enthusiasm about the potential for geographic information, technologies and techniques to best effect.

The position of Senior Public Affairs Manager is funded by both the AGI and RBS-IBG. Employment will be through the RGS-IBG, but you’ll be working on objectives that are agreed with a joint advisory group. You’ll be communicating with stakeholders at all levels, developing contacts, and showing us your capability in terms of advocacy and outreach. As someone with a strong interest in geographic information, you will have an excellent aptitude for fostering knowledge exchange between academic, business, government communities and practitioner communities – and may also have experience in policy sector or parliamentary affairs.
