The European Endowment for Democracy (EED) is an independent, grant-making organisation, established in 2013 by the European Union (EU) and EU member states to foster democracy in the countries of the European Neighbourhood and beyond.
Since its inception, EED has provided over 500 grants and evolved into a vibrant, innovative and respected member of the democracy support community. EED funds a vast array of pro-democracy actors including human rights and political activists, pro-democratic movements, civil society organisations, independent journalists and media.
This is a great opportunity to join EED in a challenging and varied role. As Programme Officer, you will be responsible for coordinating and monitoring EED’s programmes in designated countries in the Southern Neighbourhood region (see full job description for details). You will assess applications and provide guidance to applicants, monitor the progress of initiatives supported, engage in outreach activities, monitor political developments in the assigned countries, and develop relations with the donor community.
Applicants should have a thorough knowledge of Arabic, and of political issues in the Southern Neighbourhood, as well as at least five years of proven full-time professional experience in democracy-related projects and programmes in government, international organisations or civil society.
