Job & internship opportunities

We are hiring: EWL Secretary General [CLOSED]

The European Women’s Lobby is seeking to recruit an experienced feminist to lead the European Women’s Lobby’s Secretariat as SECRETARY GENERAL.

Working closely with EWL Board, Executive Committee and the wider membership, our Secretary General is adept at creating spaces for dialogue and debate, at seizing political opportunities to put our perspective across a huge range of policy areas and at mobilising our membership and partner organisations to shape and support our agenda.

As such, you will be a confident public speaker and capable of creating opportunities for many of our members’ voices to be heard in EU level debates.

You will be comfortable leading a team of knowledgeable expert colleagues and be fully aligned with our intersectional organisational culture and positions. EWL embraces a feminist culture that imbibes EWL’s core values, vision and mission. We are, therefore, seeking a candidate who will embrace and commit to our intersectional EWL Feminist Culture and more importantly, who is aligned with EWL’s positions, especially on male violence against women and prostitution as per the EWL position paper “Towards a Europe Free from all Forms of Male Violence Against Women”.

Our ideal candidate will have over 10 years senior leadership experience, preferably in a membership organisation setting, understand EU political processes and how to achieve change and embrace debate and exchange inside and outside our organisation and ecosystem. You will also have solid management skills and ensure that our funding base is secure and that we meet our statutory and contractual obligations.

As an intersectional feminist organisation, we are seeking to build an organisation that represents a diverse Europe that respects and promotes the rights of all women and girls and equality between women and men. As such, people/women of colour and from ethnic minority groups, people with disabilities, people coming from marginalized groups are especially encouraged to apply.

For more details about the role and the full salary package please see the complete role profile below.

Interested candidates are requested to submit their application to the European Women’s Lobby via this link.

You can contact Louise on if you have any questions.

The deadline for applications is 05 September 2021 at midnight CEST. Please ONLY use this link to submit your application. We will only review applications which meet these requirements.
