Open call for Liaison Officers 2015-2016

We have the pleasure to issue an Open Call for Liaison Officers for the term of 2015-2016!

As we would like to continue AEGEE-Europe’s cooperation with international institutions simplifying the structure of the body, you can apply to become a Liaison Officer towards one of the following organisations:

OECD: http://www.oecd.org/

OSCE: http://www.osce.org/

– European Youth Forum: http://www.youthforum.org/

– UNESCO: http://en.unesco.org/

– UNEP: http://www.unep.org/

– EESC & CoR*: http://www.eesc.europa.eu/ and http://cor.europa.eu/Pages/welcome.html

 

* There will be only one Liaison Officer towards the European Economic and Social Committee and towards the Committee of the Regions of the EU.

 

Role of the Liaison Officers (LOs)

The LOs are appointed to maintain a link between AEGEE and the international organisations they work with. Their role is to manage the communication between the two organisations, follow processes in both organisations and monitor where their priorities and initiatives overlap and where closer cooperation can be established.

 

The LOs are supposed to monitor the organisation they work with, get to know its structures, processes and priorities and identify how AEGEE and its members can get involved and benefit from this organisation.

LOs can represent AEGEE towards the respective organisation upon agreement with the CD, however this is not their main task. All tasks are carried out in close collaboration with the CD and the Policy Officers, depending on the portfolio. LOs will be automatically members of the Pool of Representatives.

Requirements

Liaison Officers are appointed for a period of 1 year by a formal decision of the Comité Directeur, after an open call, and receipt of applications.

In order to apply for the position of a Liaison Officer, you need to:

– be a member of AEGEE for at least one year

– have attended at least one Agora

– be acquainted with the work of the organisation you are applying for or have a strong motivation to learn more

– speak one of the official languages of the institution/organisation you wish to apply for

– be able to spend at least 5 hours a week on the work of LO, depending on the circumstances.
