Job description

We are seeking an experienced and passionate Membership and Fundraising Officer to join the European Movement UK team to help build our community. 


About the European Movement:

Following the election, we have reached an exciting turning point in our organisation. The European Movement UK’s role is more important than ever as we hold the government to account during the Brexit process. We will be campaigning for maintaining European rights, standards and values post-Brexit and campaigning against a no deal end to the transition period.

  • Supporting the Head of Digital Campaigns with fundraising streams such as philanthropy and trust and foundations fundraising.
