The EUROPEAN ENVIRONMENTAL BUREAU,
a network of more than 170 environmental citizens’ organisations,
has a vacancy for a part-time (80%)
SDG Watch Europe Coordinator
The European Environmental Bureau is the largest and most inclusive European network of environmental citizens’ groups – and the only one that works on such a broad range of issues. We advocate for progressive policies to create a better environment in the European Union and beyond. The EEB is a founding member of SDG Watch Europe, an EU-level, cross-sectoral CSO alliance of NGOs from development, environment, social, human rights and other sectors. Its goal is to hold governments to account for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDGs) and to ensure the ambitious implementation of the SDGs in and by the EU.
We are seeking an SDG Watch Europe Coordinator (at the level of a Policy Officer) to coordinate activities of SDG Watch Europe around a new, pan-European project focussing on citizens’ participation in the European Green Deal. The role includes support to SDG Watch Europe, its members and its Steering Group to strategically use its resources and create impact for the ambitious implementation of the SDGs. While the Coordinator will be employed by the EEB and integrated into this Global Policies and Sustainability Unit, the Coordinator’s tasks will also be guided by the SDG Watch Europe Steering Group.
You will have experience working on sustainability policies in the EU or beyond and/or on civil society and citizens participation across the EU. You have a personal commitment to the work we do. We are looking forward to interviewing candidates who can show they understand the sustainability challenges the EU is facing and the kind of policies that are needed to realise the SDGs, the need to increase public participation and citizens deliberation combined with an understanding of the role of civil society organisations and their networks.
Location: The candidate must commit to working most of the time from our office in Brussels and his/her home office in Belgium.
Deadline for Application: 9 December 2021
Interviews first round: as soon as possible after the deadline for application
