We’re hiring a Program Director!

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 network of women’s organisations in the European Union, gathering over 2000 women’s associations. The EWL has members in 26 EU Member States, 3 official-candidate countries, Iceland, United Kingdom as well as 17 European-wide member organisations. The EWL campaigns for a feminist Europe, promoting women’s rights and equality between women and men in the European Union.

You could be the person we are looking for!

We are looking for a PROGRAMME DIRECTOR to coordinate the organisation’s fundraising and budget management through our Financial Resilience and Sustainability Plan. This will include the coordination of EWL’s EC grant applications, reporting for liaison and contact with funders, and developing the case for the better funding and resourcing of the women’s movement, including within EWL.
