CIDSE/Broederlijk Delen are recruiting a Policy Officer for the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) and Israel who will be working on behalf of different Catholic development organisations that are united in a strategic alliance (the CIDSE Working Group on the OPT and Israel). For many years several member organisations of CIDSE (Coopération Internationale pour le Développement et la Solidarité), an alliance of 18 Catholic development organisations in Europe and North America, have been working together with Palestinian and Israeli civil society organisations. CIDSE has embarked on a strategy ‘Acting for transformation– towards a just and sustainable world’, outlining the network’s strategic direction and priorities from 2016 to 2021.
The objective of the CIDSE Working Group on OPT and Israel is to influence EU policy so that it pursues its objectives towards the OPT and Israel in accordance with international law, thus contributing to a just peace for Israelis and Palestinians. Through advocacy initiatives, lobby work and public engagement, the CIDSE member organisations of the Working Group strive to influence policy initiatives on the OPT and Israel at the EU level. The alliance also provides a forum for exchange and learning amongst member organisations, to enhance and strengthen their advocacy efforts at national level.
The CIDSE Working Group on the OPT and Israel is currently composed of five members: Broederlijk Delen (Belgium), CAFOD (England and Wales), CCFD-Terre Solidaire (France), MISEREOR (Germany) and Trócaire (Ireland).
In order to strengthen its influencing and advocacy work at the European level as well as in its own internal structure, the alliance seeks to appoint a Policy Officer, based at Broederlijk Delen in Brussels. We offer a full-time position on the basis of a one-year contract, with a possibility of extension.
The Policy Officer will be line-managed by the policy officer of Broederlijk Delen, with the support of other agencies. He/she will work together with and report to the members of the CIDSE Working Group on the OPT and Israel and to the CIDSE Secretary General. The terms and conditions of working are those of Broederlijk Delen. Broederlijk Delen applies a diversity policy and equal opportunities employment.
