The European Freedom Network is looking for new (co)-directors to lead this growing Christian network on human trafficking and exploitation into its next chapter.

About the role
The board is looking for ideally 2 visionary leaders with a passion for seeing the power of a Christian network harnessed to contribute substantially to the fight against human trafficking and commercial exploitation and who can commit a minimum of 3 years and 2 days per week to help EFN move forward into the next stage of its development.

Following a consultation with EFN members, the board especially wants our new co-directors:

  • to inspire, support and mobilise EFN members to connect, collaborate and work collectively to strengthen their individual and joint work.
  • to lead EFN’s members into collaborating strategically to harness the difference that a network of 250+ organisations and nearly 500 individual partners can uniquely make.
  • to pay particular attention to building up EFN’s capacity to help the wider Church play its role in fighting exploitation
  • to strengthen EFN’s joint Voice into society and political structures,
  • and to ensure the good running of the network

Success in this role will be seen through creating a faith-filled and sustainable vision with the board, for the next phase of EFN, and then inspiring and delivering that vision with partners, funders and, most of all, with EFN members.

A full position description is available here.

Deadline for applications is 15 November.

Interviews will take place in November. Successful candidates will also be asked to make a short trip (expenses paid) to Lisbon to meet other successful candidates before final decisions are made.
