Together for a Feminist Europe

Do you want to work for a Feminist Europe?

You are in the right place! The European Women’s Lobby (EWL) is the largest umbrella organisation of women’s associations in the European Union, gathering over 2000 women’s associations. The EWL has members in all 28 EU Member States and three of the candidate countries. The EWL campaigns for a feminist Europe, which promotes women’s rights and equality between women and men in the European Union in line with our organisational strategy.

You could be the person we are looking for!

The EWL is recruiting a well-organised, ambitious, optimistic and resilient Policy and Campaigns Officer to contribute to EWL’s feminist policy and campaigns work and the implementation of EWL Strategic Plan. This person should have a deep commitment to eradicating male violence against women, and be ready to boldly lead our campaign on prostitution. We are looking for someone who is strategic and systematic in their approach to campaigning, and unflappable in the face of opposition. This person should have a natural ability to keep calm under pressure, approach difficult issues gracefully, and infuse their work with a sense of hope and optimism.

As an intersectional feminist organisation, we are seeking to build an organisation that represents Europe in all of its diversity. As such, people/women of color and from ethnic minority groups, people with disabilities, people from the LGBTQI community and people coming from marginalized groups are especially encouraged to apply.
