This role is full time, with flexibility about how hours are distributed.

ABOUT THE YOUNG EUROPEAN MOVEMENT

The Young European Movement UK is Britain's leading pro-European youth organisation, open to all those aged under 35. We are committed to promoting European values and culture across the UK and ensuring that we stay closely linked to the rest of Europe.

Although the UK has sadly left the EU, our relationship with the EU remains important and so our work continues. We continue to maintain a connection with the EU, to make a case for the European project, and emphasise the UK's role on the continent.

ABOUT THE EUROPEAN MOVEMENT UK

The European Movement UK is a cross-party organisation working to benefit the UK through a stronger trade and cultural relationship with the EU. We are powered by more than 13,000 members, 160,000 supporters, 120+ local groups, and our strong networks in Westminster and communities throughout the UK.

Post-Brexit our organisation is growing fast, and building bridges with the rest of Europe is more important than ever. As the government negotiates new trade deals around the world, we will play a critical role in protecting the standards we currently enjoy – from environmental and food welfare standards, to workers’ rights.
