ICLEI Europe expands its topical reach and workforce

The European Secretariat of ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability has announced that it will recruit around 15 new members of staff, expanding its total workforce and strengthening the organisation’s topical reach.

The recruitment drive will see each of ICLEI Europe’s three offices gain staff members: the organisation’s headquarters in Freiburg (Germany); the ICLEI Europe Brussels Office, located close to the institutions of the European Union in the heart of the Belgian capital; and the newly-opened Berlin office, which provides a close connection with German political life.

The new positions cover a wide-range of thematic areas within the field of sustainability, including sustainable energy and climate action planning, financing and investment solutions, innovative governance and management models for natural and cultural heritage, climate change mitigation and adaptation, planning and provision of sustainable mobility solutions, procurement and achieving a sustainable economy, and more. There are also positions focused on communicating the work of ICLEI.

"This is an exciting period of growth for ICLEI Europe, and we look forward to recruiting exceptional candidates to join our team. This enlargement period will enable us to increase support to our Member cities across the region, helping them to meet their sustainability goals, improve the liveability of their urban areas, and tackle crucial challenges," said ICLEI Regional Director for Europe Wolfgang Teubner.

Further details of available positions - including application deadlines - are available on the ICLEI Europe jobs page. Applications are reviewed continuously upon arrival, so application as soon as possible is advisable.
