The Centre is recruiting a Project Support Officer: Engagement and Outreach
Posted On: 20 Jul 2021
We are looking for someone to support the “Maintaining the Necessary Conditions for Cooperation and Cross-Border Lives” project in its ongoing and regular engagement with a range of stakeholders, and to proactively secure new participants to activities under this project.
“Maintaining the Conditions for Cooperation and Cross-Border Lives” will, over twelve months, provide relevant policy and decision-makers with regular and evidence-based insights into the intensity and nature of post-Brexit North-South cooperation being undertaken by civic society organisations (CSOs) and local authorities on the island of Ireland, as well as the status of their relations with counterparts in Great Britain.
The main purpose of this role is to support the project managers (the Director of the Centre and the Manager of Border People) by
- Organising and coordinating numerous meetings and seminars, online and potentially in-person later in 2021
- Minuting meetings, collating and distributing relevant papers, and maintaining small contact-databases for each project
- Engaging and building relationships with key stakeholders
- Identifying new stakeholders and liaising with them
- Representing and promoting the projects at external meetings and events
This list is not exhaustive and the post is subject to reasonable change to meet the needs of the projects.
The Centre for Cross Border Studies is based in Armagh, however a remote working policy is currently in place as per government advice. Remote working will remain an option thereafter, subject to discussion with the Director.
