Description

About us

WeMove Europe is an independent and values-based organisation that seeks to build people power to transform Europe in the name of our community, future generations and the planet. We are people from all walks of life, who call Europe our home – whether we were born in Europe or elsewhere.

 

Our job is to mobilise a community of almost a million people across Europe on issues that matter - including the climate emergency, migrant rights, workers rights, better governance, and more. We know this number of people also needs to grow and diversify further so we can represent a strong critical mass that can bring about change in Europe.

 

We work with staff in 10 countries who connect digitally every day and in person periodically.

 

About the Role

You are able to think and do, strategise and deliver. You love being part of fast-paced campaigning for a better Europe and can also think about the bigger strategic picture.

 

Most importantly you thrive in the digital world -- online campaigning and innovative digital tactics not only come as second nature to you, they excite you as well. Data analysis and data driven decision-making is not a frightening concept to you, on the contrary. And if you are familiar with digital fundraising, that would be a massive added bonus.

 

Your tasks will include:

Co-create WeMove Europe’s European campaigns, with the Campaigns Team and Campaign Management Team

Identify campaign opportunities and develop and lead on campaigns

Help us understand the political dynamics in Germany by keeping connected to local movements, alternative thinking and researching  policy processes within your national context as it connects to the EU level

Write strong, compelling copy in German and tailor it to your local context

Manage email communications with our German members, including setting up and sending emails using our online campaigning tools (Speakout and CiviCRM), and analysing data and user engagement

You'll analyse statistics on our member’s activities to make it easier for them to engage

Build and maintain relations with partners in NGOs and movements in Germany and EU-wide

Fundraise from individual donors in Germany

Organise “offline” actions such as demonstrations, petition handovers etc.

Work with a part-time assistant to help manage the German community

Occasionally travel nationally and EU-wide for team meetings, retreats, stakeholder and partner meetings, and petition deliveries
