Job Description

Home or office-based, anywhere in Europe or the UK, this is a newly created, strategic management and team leadership role with a truly unique, fast growing campaigning organisation committed to bringing about policy change on many of the most pressing global issues of our time, from climate change and food poverty to health and animal welfare.  A great opportunity for a true leader and innovator with a passion for such issues, who would relish the opportunity to play a key role in extending the organisation’s influence and reach across the region.

Your role will have high responsibility and high impact, leading and growing an exceptionally high performing team to drive policy impact at EU and national country level across Europe. In addition to building and maintaining relations with senior level politicians and officials at EU and national level, you’ll forge alliances with nonprofit organisations, industry and other stakeholders, acting as senior spokesperson and representative in meetings, with the media and at public events.

Significant experience in leading and developing engagement strategies and campaigns to drive policy change is essential and you’ll demonstrate a keen understanding of policy making at national and/or EU level, coupled with a track record in influencing key opinion formers and decision makers across the political spectrum. A passion for the organisation’s philosophy and mission is a must as is fluent English, while additional languages would be beneficial.
