Position description

The World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) is seeking a dedicated individual to shape the future of scouting and build a better world!

The Manager will lead on all engagements with European Institutions and the development of funding opportunities relating to activities and priorities outside of the EU, in close collaboration with the European Support Centre and the Global Business Development Unit.

The primary responsibilities for the role will be to:

  1. build effective policy goals for WOSM’s engagement that are aligned with the global Strategy for Scouting, agreed business priorities and relevant European policies towards extra European countries;
  2. define and develop a strategy to implement them; and
  3. secure increased income for WOSM to support actions in line with EU priorities in the world.

This role is co-financed by the World Scout Foundation. The individual will therefore work in close collaboration with staff across the World Scout Foundation to generate income and opportunities for World Scouting. To be successful, the role will have to build trust and engage with a variety of stakeholders at the institutional level and develop strong relationships. Embedded within the World Scout Bureau’s (WSB) Business Development Unit, the role will be required to work closely across all teams with a specific focus on the European Region Support Centre, other Regional Support Centres and Scouting Development.

The role is full-time for 24 months – with the potential to extend based on performance and funding available – and will be based in Brussels, Belgium.

 

Qualifications

  • At least 5 years of experience working with policy issues in the relevant field (particular preference for NGOs) in an EU political, governmental or regulatory context;
  • Master’s degree in related fields or equivalent experience;
  • Advanced knowledge of the political landscape and EU legislative process;
  • Strong working knowledge of EU financing and structural funds;
  • Track record in developing and securing funding from EU institutions and, ideally, international development funding opportunities;
  • A legal background would be a plus;
  • Experience of working with volunteers is desirable;
  • Fluent in English and French is essential, any other command of WOSM’s languages (Spanish and Arabic) would be considered an asset.
