New DG for UKPIA


The United Kingdom Petroleum Industry Association (UKPIA) – which represents the interests of eight member companies engaged in the UK downstream oil industry on a range of common issues relating to refining, distribution and marketing of oil products, in non-competitive areas – is looking to appoint a new Director General. A salary in the region of £120,000 should prove quite attractive, but for the money you would be accountable to the President and Council, for effective leadership of the Secretariat as well as developing and implementing the Association’s strategic agenda on advocacy, communications and safety leadership.


It goes without saying that the appointment needs an outstanding leader, and one that understands the complex remit and responsibilities of the organisation. Go online to LinkedIn if you’re interested:
