We want to work with you!

Location: Brussels

Status: 80% for 1 year with a view to renewal

Application deadline: this is a rolling applications process and you can expect to hear back from us at the beginning of September

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 injecting colour and activism into the EU institutional corridors by channelling the collective energy of members of the WeMove Europe community in Brussels. It is also about leveraging WeMove Europe’s potential to play a ‘broker’ role between peoples movements and the EU institutions. First and foremost, this means working with the campaigns team, our community and partners to organise and run engaging, visible, impactful campaigning actions in Brussels - with a view to raising awareness and shifting thinking at the EU institutions. Second, the role is about opening doors and facilitating the building of long-term relationships with key actors e.g. MEPs, EC officials and partners. Third, it is about increasing the visibility of WeMove Europe in Brussels circles online and offline. This role sits inside the WeMove Europe campaigns team and supports the work of the Executive Director in Brussels. This is an 80% role for one year, with a possibility of extension.

What would it entail?

  1. Organisation of disruptive actions in Brussels

  2. Growing our network of Brussels based partners (movements, activists, ngos) to organise with

  3. Building relationships with political targets, MEPs, assistants, EU officials, media

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

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

  6. Comms and social media content preparation from 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.

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 mobilise a community of almost a million people across Europe on issues that matter - including the climate emergency, migrant rights, workers rights, better governance, and more.

About the Role

You are able to think and do, strategise and deliver. You love being part of fast-paced campaigning for a better Europe and can also think about the bigger strategic picture.

Most importantly you thrive in the digital world -- online campaigning and innovative digital tactics not only come as second nature to you, they excite you as well. Data analysis and data driven decision-making is not a frightening concept to you, on the contrary. And if you are familiar with digital fundraising, that would be a massive added bonus.

Your tasks will include:

  • Co-create WeMove Europe’s European campaigns, with the Campaigns Team and Campaign Management Team

  • Identify campaign opportunities and develop and lead on campaigns

  • Help us understand the political dynamics in Spain by keeping connected to local movements, alternative thinking and researching policy processes within your national context as it connects to the EU level

  • Write strong, compelling copy in Spanish and tailor it to your local context

  • Manage email communications with our Spanish members, including setting up and sending emails using our online campaigning tools (Speakout and CiviCRM), and analysing data and user engagement

  • You'll analyse statistics on our member’s activities to make it easier for them to engage

  • Build and maintain relations with partners in NGOs and movements in Spain and EU-wide

  • Fundraise from individual donors in Spain

  • Organise “offline” actions such as demonstrations, petition handovers etc.

  • Work with a part-time organiser to help manage the Spanish community

  • Occasionally travel nationally and EU-wide for team meetings, retreats, stakeholder and partner meetings, and petition deliveries

About you

  • You are a digital campaigning native -- comfortable with and excited by new software and online tools

  • You write great copy and have great writing skills in Spanish

  • You are deeply committed to working in Spain and Europe for bold, structural change and believe in empowering the people around you to do the same

  • You have experience with non-partisan political campaigning, ideally online and digital campaigning as well

  • You have strong understanding of the political and social context in Spain as well as a some understanding of the European context.

  • You are driven by results and crave more data, keen to run tests that are backed by statistical significance, and are always looking to improve your work

  • You are fluent in English to a degree that you can work in an English-speaking environment and can translate from English into Spanish

  • You are happy with travel in Europe (we are currently not expecting staff to travel, but it will be relevant when this is possible again)

  • You are comfortable with public speaking

  • You look forward to working in a team where we all strive to learn from each other in order to have the biggest possible impact

The following skills are considered a bonus:

  • **Digital fundraising**

  • Great writing skills in English

  • Statistics / Data analytics

  • Additional European languages

  • Street actions & protests

  • You are well networked nationally and regionally in activist circles

  • Strong understanding of one or more other European countries, gained from personal or professional experience

Terms and conditions

  • Full time position (40hrs/week); Start date as soon as possible

  • A labour contract based on Spanish labour code, starting with a 6 month probation period, followed by a permanent contract

  • Salary range: 32K to 42K gross year salary, depending on experience level

  • Location: Spain

  • Working from home office or co-working space of your choice

We are committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace which is why people from communities that experience discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity; women; people with disabilities; and LGBTQ+ people are especially encouraged to apply.

We do not share the implicit belief that online campaigners necessarily have to be very young and encourage also people who left their twenties and thirties behind to apply.​
