The Job is a new post in our team and an opportunity to really lead our work on economic policies. We have identified a need to address economic policies for their social impact and to better understand economic policies in the context of social inequalities, social rights and social development. The job will have a particular focus on European Economic Governance and the various instruments and tools that implement economic policy and their social connections. You will also lead our work on social investment and work with other colleagues on issues such as the European Semester.
We expect you to be a social economist who is enthusiastic about being part of the Eurodiaconia team working for social justice in Europe. You should be able to relate to and sympathise with our vision and mission and understand the traditions that unite our membership. You should appreciate the diversity of our membership and the various cultures that they represent. The post holder should be highly organised, proactive, able to work autonomously and be comfortable in initiating contacts with institutional stakeholders and other partners. Our day to day working language is English but you should be able to communicate well in French/Dutch and other languages, especially German, would be an advantage. A full job description and person specification is attached.
