WeMove Europe is an organisation that connects activists and movements across borders to take action towards a different kind of Europe, one that puts people and planet at the centre. After launching in 2015 over 920,000 members make up the WeMove Europe community.
We are looking for 5 Campaign Assistants to join our dedicated team of over 20 activists located across Europe (France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Belgium, Poland, the UK and Slovenia), and more specifically to join our Campaigns team. We work in a decentralised structure, with staff in many countries who connect digitally every day.
The Campaign Assistants will join our dynamic, growing team to help us build a thriving, active community of people who care about nature, climate change, human rights, inequality, supporting good ideas like free public transport, and dropping bad ones like single-use plastics. We are looking for people who above all else will be committed to the work we do, and to building a community that wants to fight for a better Europe.
