We Are Hiring! Call for Rural Resilience Project Coordinator

Deadline for applications: 15 January 2023

Face to face with the socio-ecological crises of our planet, economy and life, European rural areas are taking action now. Their future depends on the decisions taken today. Waiting for the European Commission’s Long-term Vision for Rural Areas up to 2040 might be too late, too little, or too comfortable for repurposing business-as-usual solutions.

ARC2020 – The Agricultural and Rural Convention has worked on EU Rural Development Policy since the CAP reform 2010. Building on our long track record of engagement at local level, the “Nos Campagnes en Résilience” project (2020-2022) combined policy work with action research on the ground.

Run by a small team and guided by an international board, ARC carries out research, publishes regular content and organises debates and events on key issues at the crossroad between food, agroecology, and rural areas, without neglecting the links with urban and beyond the EU.

ARC is now looking for a project coordinator to animate the Rural Resilience project (“Nos Campagnes en Résilience”) for the period 2023-2024. The project will be concentrated in France and at least one additional EU country.

What we offer

Ideal candidates should be able to cover both project areas, but experts in either policy or local networking are welcome. We offer:

  • Two years full or part-time contract depending on the skills, availability and experience of the candidate. Contracts are with the potential for renewal, subject to funding

  • Flexible work and job share options considered based on candidate and location.

  • Laptop provided
