The Centre

The International Civil Society Centre helps international civil society organisations (ICSOs) maximise their impact for a sustainable and more equitable world.

The Centre works with ICSOs to successfully navigate change. We scan the horizon for opportunities and threats; enable learning and cooperation among ICSOs and their stakeholders; support ICSOs in developing effective leadership; and promote robust accountability to strengthen ICSOs’ legitimacy. The Centre is a not-for-profit organisation fully owned by the organisations it serves. We strive to set high standards in management, governance and strategy for ICSOs and the wider sector.

The Centre is currently looking for an Events Manager to join the Programme Team!

In October 2018, our Board signed off on a new and ambitious strategy for the Centre. One of the aims for the next years is to strengthen our role as a convening platform for the ICSOs by raising quality and value for our partners. This means linking our conferences and workshops more closely to our strategic projects, offering a solid mix of exclusive gatherings and multi-stakeholder events as well as being flexible and opportunistic about the topics we explore. In order to implement our ambitious programme, we are looking for a dedicated colleague to develop the content of our core events. Part of this is to translate results from our projects into our existing event formats and to develop concepts and expected outcomes for our events. Together with the Events Officer, we are also expecting the new colleague to contribute to us providing overall inspiring event experiences for our partners.

This position offers the opportunity to actively shape the Centre’s events and work closely with leaders from the civil society sector and beyond as well as with a young and growing Centre team.
