About us

WeMove Europe is an independent and values-based organisation that seeks to build people power to transform Europe in the name of our community, future generations and the planet. We are people from all walks of life, who call Europe our home – whether we were born in Europe or elsewhere.

Our job is to move a community of a million people across Europe on issues that matter - including the climate emergency, migrant rights, workers rights, better governance, and more. We know this number of people also needs to grow and diversify further so we can represent a strong critical mass that can bring about change in Europe.

We work with staff in 10 countries who connect digitally every day and in person periodically.

About the role

The role is about bringing activism and colour to the institutional corridors of Brussels. In other words, it is about leveraging WeMove Europe’s potential to play a broker role, supporting movements in running disruptive campaigning actions in Brussels with a view to raising awareness and shifting thinking at the EU institutions. The role is also about opening doors and building long-term crucial relationships with key actors including campaign targets, politicians, officials, movements, NGOs and the media. Thirdly, it is about increasing the visibility of WeMove Europe in Brussels.

Where does the role sit?

This role sits inside the WeMove Europe campaigns team but supports in particular the work of the Executive Director in Brussels.

What would it entail?
  1. Organisation of disruptive campaigns actions in Brussels

  2. Building a network of Brussels based movements and activists to organise with 

  3. Building relationships with wider political targets, officials, partners, media 

  4. Organising events, meetings, capturing outcomes, ensuring follow up

  5. Getting visibility for ED and WeMove Europe on EU/Brussels social media

  6. Content preparation from engaging tweets to blogs to background briefings

  7. General support to the Executive Director on comms and campaigns work


These priorities will shift over time and every week is likely to be different.
