The EUROPEAN ENVIRONMENTAL BUREAU,
a network of more than 170 environmental citizens’ organisations,
has a vacancy for a full-time
Are you a passionate, versatile, and creative communicator who knows how to tell a story? Are you able to see the big picture whilst focusing on the levers that will ultimately create behavioural change? Do you subscribe to our values?
Then we might have just the right job for you.
The world’s resources are limited, but we are living as if they weren’t. Our economic system is based on taking precious resources from the natural environment, creating products with a built-in lifespan and throwing them away to then buy new ones. This ‘take-make-use-lose’ economic system has had its time. Instead, the EEB is promoting the transition towards a circular and resilient economy - where waste is prevented and products are repaired, reused or upcycled.
We are therefore seeking a talented and committed Communications Officer who will, COVID-19 permitting, be based at the EEB office in Brussels and be part a dynamic and expanding communications team.
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.
You are a creative, resourceful, and self-motivated professional, with excellent communications and interpersonal skills, eager to help build a better future for people and nature, and to promote the transition to a circular, fair, and sustainable economic model. You are organised, attentive to detail, self-driven and happy to work autonomously or as part of a team, in what is currently a largely virtual set-up.
Please send your CV, a cover letter explaining your motivation to apply for this position and the responses to the two tasks below to firstname.lastname@example.org. We may ask shortlisted candidates to provide two references. The subject line of your email must clearly state: ‘Communications Officer (Circular Economy)’. Only applications comprising these three elements will be considered.
Location: The candidate is expected to work most of the time from our office in Brussels (possibility to work from home several days a week).
Deadline for Application: 24 October 2021
Interviews first round: last week of October
Starting date: As soon as possible
The EEB is an equal-opportunities and family-friendly employer. We encourage applications from a diverse range of candidates.
Due to limited staff resources and numbers of CVs anticipated, only candidates selected for interviews will receive a reply.
