Position description

The think tank for a more inclusive, sustainable, and forward-looking Europe.

Based in Brussels, Friends of Europe is a not-for-profit think-tank. Friends of Europe aims to foster open discussion and to stimulate new thinking on the issues facing Europe and its citizens. To achieve this, they use publications, debates, and online engagement as the basis for policy debate, discussion, and potential change. They believe in social justice and equality and work with stakeholders across Europe, and the world, to craft bold and innovative recommendations to revitalize the European Project. Friends of Europe believe that good ideas and good policies come from breaking down silos and building communities of trust between policymakers, business leaders, civil society representatives, and citizens. This is how to catalyse change.

Friends of Europe is seeking a Director of Organisation, People and Processes to take on the overall supervisory responsibility for the smooth running of the organisation’s operations, whilst securing the functionality of the organisation’s business processes. This is a unique opportunity for an ambitious and results-oriented individual to support in furthering the organisation’s strategic objectives and ensure excellent results, by focusing on internal efficiencies, professionalism, and teamwork. The Director of Organisation, People and Processes will be part of the management team and report directly to the Co-Founder/Secretary-General.

A dynamic and inspiring leader, the Director of Organisation, People and Processes will bring professional experience in people management, internal organisational management, and regulatory issues. The ideal candidate will have experience in a non-profit organisation, think tank or SME, and will bring well-rounded experience in multiple disciplines and the innate ability to lead and connect to deliver results. Equipped with excellent organisational, people management, and leadership abilities, s/he is a self-starter, with a naturally collaborative and low-ego style. Moreover, the successful candidate will have highly developed interpersonal skills and excellent verbal French and English communications skills.
