Interested in managing members for the largest interregional network in Europe?
We are looking for a colleague to help us with the management of the network, accompany our member regions in their AER experience and extend our membership base to new regions. We offer a Belgian full-time employment contract (initially 6 months contract, with possibility of converting it to a permanent position).
This is who we are
Do you want to be our new colleague? Here are the things that are great about this workplace:
- We’re a very small team, so everybody is really important
- We’re also a very great team, with awesome people on board
- The thing we work for is super cool: who could be against helping people across Europe to work together?
- It is a place for personal growth, as you get to work with so many very different people with different backgrounds your horizon widens and you change
- We use cloud-based team collaboration tools, which allows us to keep in close contact. despite frequent travels and different locations – and, it helps us for community building.
To put it simple: we’re the coolest network in Europe.
If this is you…
We need someone who is open-minded, respectful and responsive – in other words, communicative. In this position, you will be expected to keep yourself up to date and well informed and to use your insights in a proactive manner, delivering results in a smart, politically sensitive way.
Our new colleague should speak and write fluently in English, have a work experience in a European/international environment, be interested in the regional dimension in Europe, ready to travel across the continent and have a good working knowledge of all modern channels of communication (Office suite, Mailchimp, WordPress, Slack, social networks…). Creative ideas and a good understanding of online community building would definitely be an asset.
As you may gather from this, “dynamic”, “energetic” and “inspiring” are key words when we look for a new team member. And, it doesn’t hurt if you’re cool and fun to be with.
Your professional profile should fit the responsibilities below.
