The European Artificial Intelligence Fund is looking for a Programme Manager for a three year temporary position (renewable) based in Europe (preferably in Brussels) to coordinate grant making and management of the Fund.
Application deadline: July 31, 2020.
We are a group of European foundations working across industries dedicated to using our resources - financial and otherwise - to strengthen civil society and deepen the pool of experts across Europe who have the tools, capacity and know-how to catalogue and monitor the social and political impact of AI and data driven interventions and hold them to account.
Originally convened by King Baudouin Foundation, Mozilla, Luminate and Open Society Foundations in late 2019 and early 2020, we are a group of twenty national, regional and international foundations working in Europe.
Our long-term vision is to create an ecosystem for European public interest and civil society organisations to shape the direction of AI in Europe based on a diversity of actors and a plurality of goals that represents society as a whole. We are seeking a talented programme manager to help us accomplish this vision. This is approximately a $2 million per year initiative with at least a 30 month commitment.
As the Programme Manager leading this initiative, you will cultivate, support, and track a cohort of high-impact investments from our funding coalition. You will support the coalition administratively by acting as the liaison between the Network of European Foundations (where the fund will be housed) and the funders themselves. You will have experience in grant making in the digital, human rights or civil society fields and demonstrate strong diplomacy. You will empower the organizations you work with to recognize, design, and implement projects that address issues at the intersection of technology and society.
This role sits within the Network of European Foundations.
This position is based in Europe. We can hire in the jurisdictions of the United Kingdom and Europe.
Please note, this position is not eligible for work authorization sponsorship.
If you are interested in being considered for this position, please send your CV along with a cover letter explaining how you are to fulfil the requirements of the role to Sarah Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org, by July 31th, 2020.
There’s a desire for the successful candidate to assume his/her position as soon as possible.
