ITF is an international federation of transport workers’ trade unions recognised as the world’s leading transport authority. We fight passionately to improve working lives, connecting trade unions from 150 countries that may otherwise be isolated and helping their members to secure rights, equality and justice. We are the voice for 20 million members working men and women across the world. The ITF Head Office is based in Borough, London. International offices include Amman, Hong Kong, Montreal, Nairobi, New Delhi, Abidjan, Rio de Janeiro, Singapore, Tokyo and Sydney. 

The ITF’s mandate is to build transport workers’ power through three strategic directions: growing and activating membership, innovative campaigns, and influencing global and regional policy.

New technologies are changing transport, the economy, politics and unionism. The landscape of work has also changed significantly due to the impact of the global pandemic, COVID-19. The ITF is leading a number of affiliate, regional and global activities that address the impact of new technologies on the future of work.

Under the direction of the Young Transport Workers Officer, the Future of Work Advisor will work with key stakeholders to develop and deliver an organisation-wide strategy to coordinate the delivery of the ITF’s work plans and activities concerning the future of work, in line with these three new strategic directions.

This role would suit an innovative, analytical professional, with excellent communication skills, with proven experience of problem solving and knowledge of the transport industry. Experience of working with international organisations and governance bodies on technology changes and its impacts is key.  Due to the ever-changing landscape of the modern day working environment, this role needs an individual with the dynamism to help the organisation adapt and thrive in an increasingly technological world. 

Due to the international aspects of the organisation’s work, a good working knowledge of another language would be an advantage.

This role offers a salary of £50,510 per annum, plus a non-performance related guaranteed bonus equating to 1/12th of your annual salary.

ITF offers a highly competitive final pension salary scheme, flexible working as well as the opportunity to work in a state of the art modern office building in central London. For further information on the staff benefits that we provide please see here.
