Founded in 1950, World Vision is a global Christian relief, development, and advocacy organisation dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty, violence, disaster, and injustice. World Vision has over 37,000 staff in nearly 100 countries. We collaborate with others in pursuit of positively impacting the most vulnerable children, their families, and communities around the world.
World Vision EU Representation (WV EUREP) in Brussels is one of several “global capitals” based in strategic global locations and an association of WV offices engaged strategically with the EU. Our main goal is to see a tangible increase in political and financial investment in children by the EU. We work towards this goal and World Vision’s main priority areas through two strategic avenues: supporting the World Vision Partnership with expertise and knowledge on EU funding and advocating for children’s rights at EU level.
The Director of EU Advocacy & Policy will contribute to the optimal functioning of the Brussels based World Vision (WV) EUREP office and to the achievement of one of its strategic objectives: leading advocacy with European Union institutions, influencing EU policies and practices that impact the rights and well-being of vulnerable children worldwide. Managing World Vision’s Brussels advocacy & policy team, building strong relationships, networks and credibility with EU and other Brussels based stakeholders and across the international World Vision Partnership is also part of the objectives of the Director of EU Advocacy & Policy.
The Director of EU Advocacy & Policy will work under the supervision and authority of the WV EUREP Executive Director and will also have a functional reporting line with the World Vision’s Global Advocacy & External Engagement team.
We offer a long-term contract, full-time to start rapidly and a work environment where good team spirit, collaboration and personal development are held high.
