IFOAM Organics Europe is looking for 6 young, motivated people residing in the EU to volunteer in our office in Brussels as part of the European Solidarity Corps (ESC). Placement will start in autumn provided the ESC grant is approved.

Do you know anyone that would be interested?

The volunteers will be trained and get the chance to learn more about the organic movement while working as part of our policy, research, communications, projects & fundraising, HR & office or events & membership teams. The duration of the assignment is 11 months, lasting from September 2021 to July 2022.

Our volunteers will receive an allowance of 515 EUR per month to cover their living costs. They will be reimbursed for their travel expenses and granted health insurance, a public transport pass and individual rooms in a shared house.

To qualify, candidates need to:

  • Be between 18 and 30 years old;
  • Be a legal resident of an EU country other than Belgium;
  • Have the right to live and work in Belgium;
  • Be passionate or have a substantial interest in learning about organic agriculture;
  • Have never done an ESC (European Solidarity Corps) or EVS (European Voluntary Service) before.

To apply, candidates should read the Guide for ESC candidates and fill in the online application form by Sunday, 13 June 2021. More information can be found on IFOAM Organics Europe’s website.
