This is a newly created position in a growing and ambitious organisation, where the postholder will have broad responsibilities across research, external affairs and programme and project management. Moreover, you will build a strong global network of business leaders, computer scientists, academics and NGOs to increase the reach and influence of Future Advocacy. On an organisational level, you will develop and lead a strategy for the thinktank and be a thought leader on AI and emerging tech within the team
