We are hiring a Head of campaigning

European Alternatives is increasingly involved in running European campaigns – from media pluralism to basic income, from migrant rights to financial transaction tax. We are planning to be amongst the first to use the new tool of the European Citizens Initiative (ECI), allowing one million citizens from at least seven member states to present a legislative proposal directly to the European Commission.

  • Developing and implementing a successful strategy for transnational campaigns, in particular on the themes of media pluralism and basic income, where we plan to run ECIs from April 
  • Building strong transnational support-networks around our campaigns, engaging NGOs, civil society groups, institutional representatives, and social movements from a large number of European countries
  • Engaging our members and supporters, and developing a clear strategy for them and our local groups to participate in campaigning
  • Developing elements of fundraising for the campaigns
The ideal candidate wil:
  • Show commitment to European Alternatives values and mission
  • Show previous experience in campaigning or political work
  • Be willing to travel regularly and extensively, including on weekends
  • Be a natural communicator and mediator, able to bring together a plurality of actors around common objectives
  • Have a capacity to relate to and liaison with different levels, from the institutional to the grassroots
  • Have native-level English proficiency, with additional languages an advantage
The position can be full-time or part-time
Salary: circa €24,000 – €28,000pa (or pro-rata equivalent for part-time)
Based in: Rome or Paris
Starting: April 1st or earlier
