About the role
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. It provides a formal mechanism for EU and US consumer representatives to input into EU and US political negotiations and agreements as well as explore ways of strengthening the EU and US consumer view at the international level.
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 also be responsible for organising the TACD annual meetings which alternate between Washington and Brussels. This event attracts high profile speakers from the US government and European Commission as well as senior consumer advocates from both sides of the Atlantic.
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.
