The main responsibilities are as follows:

  • Implementing, in close collaboration with the EBN project managers, the communication strategy and activities derived from a wide range of EU-funded and international projects;

Preferred experience:

  • Understanding of EU-funded or international projects;

  • Analytical and logical with the ability to develop creative solutions to meet deadlines;
  • Financial awareness;
  • Able to see the bigger picture whilst attentive to detail;
  • Equally able to work on own initiative as well as be an active team player;
  • Excellent Microsoft skills and confidence to learn new software solutions;
  • Preference for working knowledge of a second European language.
