Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO) is a research and campaign group working to expose and challenge the privileged access and influence enjoyed by corporations and their lobby groups in EU policy making.
We are a team of 13 people, with about half based in Brussels. To support our expanding communications team we are looking for a full time press officer to join us in working from our Brussels office, ideally from early February 2022.
You will connect CEO with the media sphere in Brussels and beyond and will be the main point of contact for journalists. Liaising with reporters based in EU member states and beyond, you will ensure that CEO’s perspective contributes to the public debate; you will build and maintain lasting relationships with members of the press; and continue to establish CEO as a reliable source for expertise on corporate lobbying across a variety of EU policy fields.
Working at CEO means being part of a team which strives for horizontal, collaborative, and participatory decision-making and team processes. There is no line management and each team member is responsible for their own tasks and workload. All employees are expected to contribute to the internal working groups that are the backbone of the organisation (finance, fundraising, human resources, and governance). There is always space to discuss and adapt to individual needs, ask for support, and get feedback.
Our team is dedicated to an organisational culture that aims for sustainable workloads and respect for a healthy work-life balance.
Corporate Europe Observatory is committed to equal opportunities and diversity. We encourage applications from anyone who believes they fit the essential requirements of the job, irrespective of age, disability, gender identity or sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital or parental status, ethnicity, or religion/belief.
To apply please fill in part 1 and 2 of our application form (available for download here and here) and send it to email@example.com stating “Press Officer” in the subject line in .docx or .odf file. The deadline for application is midnight 10 December 2021.
Please note that CVs and cover letters will not be considered.
Candidates will be contacted by 17 December. Interviews will be held in Brussels 9-14 January 2022.
We look forward to reading your application and hopefully welcoming you into the team by 1 February (a later starting date can be negotiated).
