An exciting opportunity to make a difference to transatlantic consumer policies.

The Trans Atlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD) is a unique forum for US and EU consumer organisations.

As TACD Project Coordinator you will support the work of the steering committee and policy groups in developing positions and responses to the negotiations. You will also help to manage key strategic and high-level relationships with a range of stakeholders, including within the EU and US governments, the consumer movement, wider civil society, and industry.

You will need to be a confident, organised and efficient individual with knowledge of the US government and/or European Union institutions. You should have had some experience of organising events and managing donor-funded projects.
