Friends of the Earth International (FoEI) is seeking an International Programs Officer to work closely with two of FoEI's international programs: Forests and Biodiversity (F&B) and Food Sovereignty (FS). The International Programs Officer will be part of a small team, led by FoEI's International Programs Facilitator that supports implementation of program activities and facilitates the planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning of the programs.
FoEI's international programs engage national member groups from around the world in a variety of strategies to achieve international policy and mobilization goals. In the coming period F&B and FS program priorities include: promoting community forest management and agroecology, including within the UN Committee on World Food Security and the international processes established by the Convention on Biological Diversity; halting the financialization of nature and making the negative impacts of the agribusiness model more visible.
The programs are coordinated by International Program Coordinators (IPCs) who are based in FoEI member groups around the world. Each FoEI program works closely with a steering group made up of member group representatives from across FoEI's geographical regions, who help oversee the day-to-day work of the program. The International Programs Officer will also work closely with the coordinators and steering group members.
These programs are funded in part through the Green Livelihoods Alliance (GLA), which is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The International Programs Officer will engage in GLA processes as needed on behalf of FoEI.
Job responsibilities:
  • Work with the IPCs to support implementation of program activities, including trainings, program meetings, development of communications materials and lobby and advocacy efforts.
  • Support the process of funding national member group work included in the program plans, including monitoring the work and ensuring member group;
  • Monitor the budget for the program activities, track expenses and follow up with member groups, consultants and others as needed;
  • Support and improve the planning, monitoring, evaluation, learning and reporting processes for the two programs;
  • Work with the IPF and IPCs to ensure compliance with the requirements of the program funders, including development of gender-focused outcomes, monitoring of program plans, and narrative reporting on program outcomes and lessons learned;
  • Ensure that program reporting is up-to-date in FoEI's (internal) Information Management System and in the (external) IATI reporting tool;
  • Represent FoEI in the GLA alliance, including taking part in discussions and activities related to planning, reporting, evaluation and learning;
  • Support and improve planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning systems of FoEI.
  • At least three years of experience in managing international or multinational projects, including experience with the planning, monitoring, evaluation, learning and reporting cycles;
  • Affinity with the mission, vision, values and objectives of Friends of the Earth International, as well as with a theory of change that includes movement building strategies as well as advocacy strategies;
  • Excellent strategic thinking and planning skills, with experience in applying these in a complex and shifting international context;
  • Strong interpersonal, intercultural and organizational skills;
  • Proven writing skills; ability to summarize and distribute information quickly and succinctly;
  • Strong attention to detail and ability to meet deadlines;
  • Ability to work in collaborative decision-making processes in a global, decentralized environment and to manage and prioritize a variety of key initiatives concurrently;
  • Experience working on lobby and advocacy campaigns and movement building tactics and strategies focused on environmental or social justice objectives (including addressing gender inequalities) would be an advantage;
  • Excellent English language skills; fluency in Spanish or French would be a strong advantage. Ability to work in Dutch would also be an advantage;
  • Permission to work in EU required; no relocation package offered.
What FoEI offers:
  • We offer an opportunity to contribute to a better world and work for an inspiring international and culturally diverse network in an office with a small friendly team at a great location in Amsterdam.
  • Full time salary between EU 3,021 and EU 3,275 monthly depending on experience and qualifications.
  • Contract duration: 1 year initially, to be renewed upon positive performance evaluation.
  • Participation in collective pension arrangement compulsory.
  • This post will require a working permit for The Netherlands (granted automatically for EU citizens), and will require being physically based in the Netherlands.
Please send your letter and CV to Wieke Wagenaar, email: ipo[at] before March 21st, 2016, 9.00 am. Interviews will be held on April 1st.
