[CLOSED] Paid Opportunities | Project Manager


YEE is looking for a full-time (40 hours per week) Project Manager to work with us on international youth projects and promote inclusion of diverse young people in the European youth climate movement and environmental decision-making processes.

Who are we looking for:

  • A young European between 18 and 29 years old, based in Prague or able to relocate to Prague, Czechia.
  • With experience in project management, project writing and reporting, budgeting and financial reporting for projects.
  • With at least basic managerial experience and/or coordination of several projects at a time.
  • With a strong ability to communicate clearly and consistently in a group setting.
  • Extremely well-organised and result-oriented, able to manage their time, set priorities, find resources and deliver results autonomously.
  • Demonstrated ability to perform well in an agile environment.
  • With a kind, sensitive and intersectional approach to people.

Would be an asset:

  • Experience in Erasmus+ projects, youth exchanges, non-formal education.
  • Experience in managing volunteers.
  • Experience in working with marginalised communities (BIPOC, LGBTQ+, Roma people, etc.).
  • Knowledge of the climate crisis, environmental movements, policy, UN processes, European policy, involvement in or good understanding of Green movements and Green politics.

What the job will entail:

  • Leading the flagship project of YEE, Showcasing the Unheard, scheduled to run from October 2021 till March 2023. The project contributes to making the European youth climate movement more resilient and inclusive, and to opening the gates to young people with fewer opportunities to become future decision-makers. The main objectives of the project are to build the capacity of NGOs in Europe (including YEE) to work with marginalised communities, and to showcase the stories of young people from marginalised communities already acting against the climate crisis.
  • Overseeing and coordinating further projects of YEE, finding links between projects and ensuring their most effective realisation.
  • Cooperating closely with the project leaders, as well as YEE’s Communications Manager.
  • Reporting to the funders: writing narrative reports, preparing financial reports together with the Secretary General.
  • Developing further project concepts and applications.
  • Engaging YEE’s Member Organisations into projects.
  • Regularly updating the YEE team about the progress of their work, attending team and statutory meetings.
  • Occasionally, work during weekends and/or in evenings is required and will be compensated with equal time off.

What we offer:

  • A 12-month full-time (40 hours per week) employment contract with social and health insurance in Prague, Czechia. The contract will be prolonged upon one year of employment till at least March 2023.
  • A monthly net salary of 37 000 CZK.
  • Work in the office in the Prague city centre, together with an ambitious and supportive international team in Prague and all over Europe.
  • Non-hierarchical setting with plenty of opportunities to input, co-design processes, participate in organisational decision making, and grow as a professional.

Starting date: 1st of October 2021.

Apply here till the 15th of September, 23:59 CEST. Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an online interview. In case of any questions, please, contact our Secretary General Tetiana Stadnyk at tanya@yeenet.eu.
