YouMove Senior Campaigner - Consultant

Location: Anywhere in EU 

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 mobilize the 900,000+ WeMove members across Europe on issues that matter - including the climate emergency, immigration, workers rights, better governance, and more. We know this number of people also needs to grow and diversify so we can represent a critical mass across Europe. 

We work in a decentralised structure, with staff rooted in many countries who connect digitally every day and in person occasionally as well.
