Background

In the upcoming year we are aiming to increase and diversify our membership. So far we have seen the most impact where we have both policy-makers and migrant organisations present in countries to work together and build on constructive dialogue, however onboarding these new groups takes time and innovative ways of influencing.

The role

We are seeking a membership intern to liaise with current members in order to understand both if there are other members within their countries that it may be worth approaching for membership, and also to understand the key benefits of membership and how to package that to potential new members.

2) Discuss with current members and other EU networks (teacher trade unions, student body groups) about benefits of membership and potential members in their countries.

3) Develop a list of potential new members and a tool/framework for engaging with them.

  1. The intern will need to be fluent in English and preferably speak at least one other European (EU) language. (Required)
