Third Generation Environmentalism is hiring a
Programme Leader for EU politics and governance, Brussels
Internal vacancy only
E3G is looking for Programme Leader to lead a new programme for EU politics and governance. The role will be central to shaping and delivering E3G’s strategy at EU-level, and building our engagement in key Member States. The preference is for the role to be based E3G’s Brussels office.
Building a climate safe world requires aligning different forces in society to create the laws and institutions necessary to drive change. In the EU, E3G aims to build the political conditions necessary to drive action towards a safe climate in EU institutions and national governments. E3G’s Political Economy and Governance (PEG) work sets out to understand how countries’ economic conditions interact with their political system to produce decisions on climate change.
The time is right for E3G to set up a programme for EU politics and governance. EU climate action is no longer the sole focus of climate or energy ministries and is increasingly driven by frequent discussions at the highest political level, and requiring a stronger political focus. Climate governance will need to evolve into climate social and economic governance to be effective, with E3G well positioned to lead the shift in the EU’s climate governance community. E3G’s growth in size and scope have also increased significantly the need for coordination, messaging, and value creation.
E3G is looking for an individual with a deep understanding of EU politics and policies, as well as E3G’s value add and ways of working, to establish and lead this programme. The programme leader will play a key role in shaping our political strategy and engagement process, working closely with E3G’s other programmes to deliver transformational outcomes. The programme will be firmly embedded in PEG. The programme leader will directly report to the Brussels Director and will work closely with the Associate Director for PEG.
E3G values diversity and welcomes applications from all suitably qualified candidates regardless of age, gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or ethnic background.
The candidate’s main focus will be to lead the EU politics and governance programme team, manage a coordinated strategy across multiple grants, and develop effective strategies to influence EU politics and policies, with a particular focus on highly political and “cross-sectoral” debates and processes.
In delivering these strategies, the candidate will work closely with E3G’s Brussels and Berlin Directors, and with E3G’s thematic teams, frequently driving and coordinating strategies and activities geared towards EU outcomes.
The candidate’s main focus will be EU-level politics and policies, but with the goal of increasing engagement and influence in key Member States over time.
