AEGEE / European Students’ Forum is looking for a Project Officer to work together with us in our headoffice in Brussels. AEGEE membership is not a requirement to apply for the position.

AEGEE is one of Europe’s biggest interdisciplinary student organisations. As a non-governmental, politically independent, and non-profit organisation, we are open to students and young people from all faculties and disciplines. Founded in 1985 in Paris, today AEGEE has grown to a Network of 13000 friends, present in 200 cities in 40 countries all over Europe. AEGEE puts the idea of a unified Europe into practice. Operating without a national level, it brings 13000 students from 40 different countries directly in touch with each other.

We are looking for a young professional to work with us in the development of the project “Why European Parliament?”(YEP), which will, through social media, an online platform and educational materials inform young people about the European Institutions with a special focus on the European Parliament and the upcoming European Parliamentary elections.

  • Support the writing of grant applications and reports
  • Communication and cooperation with partners (other NGOs, European institutions)
  • Support the development of tools and resources
