Airbnb is a mission-driven company dedicated to helping create a world where anyone can belong anywhere. It takes a unified team committed to our core values to achieve this goal. Airbnb's various functions embody the company's innovative spirit and our fast-moving team is committed to leading as a 21st century company.
Airbnb’s public policy team exists to further the interests of our community of hosts and guests with politicians, regulators, opinion leaders and others who shape the political and legal context for our business, helping them to understand the significant social and economic contributions of our platform. Across the EMEA region, we are engaged in well over a hundred local conversations and negotiations with governments big and small. We engage governments at local, regional and national levels directly and also use innovative advocacy and partnership strategies that actively involve our community and our stakeholders in making the case for fair, progressive home sharing rules.
We organise ourselves in integrated campaign groups, drawing on a wide range of tools and disciplines - from detailed policy and government relations work, through high-impact partnerships, proactive media relations, community organising, digital platforms and content, polling, and innovative data science and research. We use the combined might of these disciplines to progress our overall policy agenda.
We are looking for a Public Policy Manager to support our campaigns across the United Kingdom. This role is a key member of the multi-skilled campaign team, helping to define policy goals and positions and implement them, working alongside other functional experts who support those goals through content, community engagement, civic partnerships and media relations. This role will report to the Policy and Government Relations Lead for Northern Europe.
In this role you must be skilled in policy engagement with a wide variety of external stakeholders especially at national level but also at a local level - able to work proactively to help stakeholders understand the contribution of the collaborative economy to sustainable tourism.
The ideal candidate will be passionate about Airbnb’s mission, and have proven experience in regulatory, tax and political work in a relevant business or non-governmental organisation, or in a political, governmental or regulatory context.
Travel within the UK should be expected, along with occasional travel within Europe and to our global headquarters in San Francisco.
