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 previous resignation of two CT the members and the different composition of the Executive Committee (EC) after the General Assembly (GA) in May 2018, the CT consists at the moment of: 

  • 3 MO representatives: Mina Tolu (ADZ), Oriol Muñoz Gual (JEV), Iris Nibbering (DWARS)
  • the Secretary General

Two additional EC members will be assigned to the CT following the first retreat of the new Executive Committee in June 2018. 

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 is bound by the campaign concept presented and adopted by the MOs at FYEG GA in May 2018.

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 weekends in July 2018, concrete date will be specified. It is very important that as a new CT member you are in a position to attend the real life meeting. 

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. 

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