Position description

By joining Social Platform’s Secretariat you will be at the heart of a growing movement to revive democracy and social progress across Europe!

Created in 1995, Social Platform is the umbrella organisation of around fifty networks that actively work at European, national and local level. By joining forces we have the potential to make a real difference to issues of social justice, human rights and participatory democracy. We are recognised by EU institutions and by EU Member States as being a leading voice of civil society organisations active in the social field.

Working for Social Platform is therefore a unique opportunity to help shape the future of Europe by strengthening civil society participation.

The Policy and Advocacy Officer will contribute to planning, implementing and monitoring Social Platform’s advocacy actions in fields related to social justice and participatory democracy. In particular, the officer will lead the policy and advocacy work on economic and social governance and on civil dialogue in the social sector. By doing so, he/she will effectively harness the collective expertise and influence of Social platform members, foster cooperation within the Secretariat to ensure that the policy and advocacy work is rooted in Social Platform’s strategic actions and develop and manage relations with strategic external stakeholders.
