About Us

There are over a billion girls in the world. Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting is the space they need to be the best they can be.

 For over 100 years, the World Association of Girl Guides & Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) have been the only global movement geared entirely to every girl and any girl. In places local to them – safe from judgment, stereotyping and violence – girls learn by doing, making friends and having fun.

 We give girls the chance girls to reach their full potential.  They become happy and adventurous individuals, with the skills and attitudes which are changing their community and their world.

The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) keeps the global Movement thriving, united and growing.

About the Role

We are seeking two Programme Coordinators (one for 28 hours and other for 35 hours) with experience of youth organisations in Europe. You will work closely with colleagues, committee members and national associations. 

 This is an exciting opportunity to support the delivery of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) programmes to Girl Guide associations that are Member Organisations (MOs) of WAGGGS in the Europe region. It will involve delivery as part of a volunteer and staff team.

 The Europe Region supports 64 national Girl Guide and Girl Scout organisations in 41 countries and reaches more than 1.2 million young people. Committee members, regional volunteers and employees work in close collaboration to deliver the strategy voted at the regional conference, we are organised in working groups or we work on ad hoc projects.

 The primary purpose of this role is to work closely with colleagues, committee members and national associations. WAGGGS provides non-formal education programmes, toolkits, events and activities for our members in 150 countries worldwide. These roles will work with colleagues in the Global Programmes department to add value to the MOs through WAGGGS programmes, including those that are unique to the Europe region.

 As an example, the Programme Coordinators will project manage a training event for more than 200 people from all over Europe (the Academy), provide support to the advisory group of the European Jamboree 2020, project manage the final part of Lead the way, including support to write a tool on educational method. 

About You

 You will have experience of project planning and ideally developing non-formal learning programmes.  You will also have a passion and commitment for issues affecting girls and young women.

 You will be able to build relationships with a wide range of stakeholder and have excellent verbal and written skills as you need to develop programmes and materials and reports to a high standard.

 Fluency in written and spoken English and French is essential

 The post will be based in our Brussels office and the successful candidate must be able to start in January 2019.

 If you care about opportunities for girls in Europe and around the world, can quickly pick up established programmes and work collaboratively, but also under your initiative, this could be the role for you!
