The European AI Fund was launched in 2020 as a philanthropic initiative to shape the direction of AI in Europe. We are a group of national, regional and international foundations working in Europe who envision a world where AI serves the interests of people and society, and where the policies and funding that regulate AI champion equity, fairness, and diversity, as well as democracy and human rights.
The European AI Fund is housed at the Network for European Foundations (NEF), an association of leading European foundations, dedicated to strengthening philanthropic cooperation, based in Brussels.
We are seeking to appoint an exceptional individual to the role of the Fund Director at the earliest possible date.
We are looking for a forward-thinking leader in the technology and civil society space in Europe. As the Fund Director steering this initiative, you will strengthen, cultivate and help to grow this funder partnership by acting as the liaison between the Network for European Foundations and the donors that contribute to the fund. You will empower the civil society organisations you work with to identify, design, and implement grants and convenings that address issues at the intersection of technology and society.
There is a slight preference for this position to be based in Belgium. For the right candidate, we are able to offer a consultancy arrangement in the jurisdictions of the European Union or the United Kingdom. Please note, this position is not eligible for work authorisation sponsorship.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
