Eurodiaconia is looking to recruit a Policy and Membership Development Officer – Migration

Closing date for applications is 29 January 12 midday CET. However, we will review applications on a rolling basis and reserve the right to close applications if suitable candidates have been found before this date.

Eurodiaconia is a European network of churches and Christian NGOs providing social and health care services and advocating for social justice. Together our membership represents the needs and unique experiences of 52 national and regional organisations in 32 countries. Members’ activities facilitate social cohesion and inclusion through diaconal work – the provision of social and health services to young and old, people experiencing marginalisation, exclusion and poverty and situations of abuse as well as advocating for social justice.

We expect you to have practical and academic experience in the social policy and migration field with a proven track record of working at European level in the Brussels environment or a comparable national environment. You should be confident in dealing with our partners, members and external stakeholders. This includes the European Institutions, NGO’s, Think Tanks and Social Partners. You should be able to work autonomously on your policy files but also able to work collaboratively with colleagues, members and partners. You should have a particular commitment to social justice, social inclusion and reducing social inequalities. You will have expert knowledge on the challenges that migrants face with social inclusion and integration and how social services and social protection systems will contribute. You will also be able to ensure a cross cutting approach in your work, ensuring that issues relating to migration are included in other advocacy work. Also included in this position is our work on Roma integration and intra EU migration.
