Do you know all about EU Presidencies? Do you have a solid body of experience as trainer and writer? Then this job is tailored for you! 

CONCORD is looking for a consultant to research and produce a publication on the decision-making processes within the European Institutions and how they link to the six-monthly presidency periods.  Accompanying the publication will be training materials for our members to introduce this publication to their members, and ensure the information reaches the largest number of our partners possible.

Main responsibilities and tasks

CONCORD aims to give national platforms in countries holding the EU presidency the tools they need to to exploit this period as an exciting opportunity to make an impact on their country’s and Europe’s role in international development.

We expect to be able to provide them with an up-to date guide that clearly outlines the way CONCORD works with the European institutions to influence development policy, and how the presidency period timetable fits into this landscape. We would also like the publication to be a relevant tool for newcomers to CONCORD’s confederation, and for all members who wish to better understand how CONCORD functions.

Indicative Timeline

From August to October 2017. The first training of CONCORD members is planned for December 2017 with the Austrian and Bulgarian national platforms.
