Call for campaign team member! (CLOSED)

FYEG is looking for one additional campaign team member to join the ranks of the Campaign Team (CT) for the European elections in 2019. 

The CT was formally established in Fall 2017 and was presented to the MOs at the Strategic Planning Meeting in December 2017. Due to the resignation of one of the members, the CT consists at the moment of: 3 MO representatives (Mina, Uri, Maryan), 3 EC members (Kim, Zuzana, Tariq) and the Secretary General. We are looking for one additional MO representative to join our ranks.

As a CT member you will represent FYEG’s Member Organisations in the development of FYEG’s European elections campaign. The CT has the responsibility to coordinate the drafting of the content and the strategy of the campaign together with the EC and the Office, with regular input and feedback from the MOs. The CT meets bi-weekly and conducts most of its work online. There will be a real-life meeting of the CT in Brussels during one of the first weekends in April 2018. It is very important that as a new CT member you are in a position to attend the real life meeting. The campaign concept will be presented to the MOs at FYEG GA in May 2018.

It is required that candidates are put forward by their member organisation. Thus, it is not possible to apply on an individual basis. Each MO may nominate up to one nominee to the CT. 

We encourage MOs to also nominate people who might not have been closely involved in FYEG lately, if they have developed strong campaigning skills (strategic thinking, data analysis, storytelling, etc) in their MO. Details can be provided in the motivation and nomination letters. However, due to the tight deadline for applications even brief nomination letters will be regarded as sufficient.

We aim to have a CT that is regionally and gender balanced and welcome applications from members of disadvantaged groups!
