About The Company:  

Our mission is to ensure that no viable UK export fails for lack of finance or insurance, while operating at no net cost to the taxpayer.

We are the UK’s export credit agency and a government department, working alongside the Department for International Trade as an integral part of its strategy and operations.

We work with over 100 private credit insurers and lenders to help UK companies access export finance (the particular class of loans, insurance policies or bank guarantees that enable international trade to take place as easily and securely as possible). We exist to complement not compete with the private sector.

We help UK companies to:

We can support exports for any size of company and across all sectors, from capital goods to services and intangibles such as intellectual property.

Job description

The Strategy, Policy and Climate Change Directorate (SPoCC) contains 6 functions which all have strategic importance, but all have a very different brief. The functions are strategy, climate and sustainability, international relations, governance and information, policy & products and environmental and social. The variation in the briefs, the number of people in the directorate and the need for efficiency and pace in the strategic priorities means that a strong administrative function is needed to support the Directorate. This is where the SPoCC Office comes in.

The SPoCC office will be overseen by the role holder who will report to the Head of Governance & Information, offering them support as needed with her objectives for the function, but will also work directly with the Director in relation to their priorities and corporate reporting responsibilities.
