The International Civil Society Centre helps the world’s leading international civil society organisations (ICSOs) maximise their impact for a sustainable and more equitable world.
The International Civil Society Centre (the Centre) works with ICSOs to develop strategies for successfully navigating change. We scan the horizon for exciting opportunities; enable learning and cooperation among ICSOs and their stakeholders; support ICSOs with developing effective leadership and promote robust accountability to strengthen ICSOs’ legitimacy. The Centre is a not-for-profit organisation fully owned by the organisations it serves. We strive to set high standards in management, governance and strategy for ICSOs and the wider sector.
With its Securing Civic Rights Programme, the Centre is addressing the current threat of shrinking spaces for civil society and civic participation. Since 2016, the Centre has increased its work in this area by facilitating the development of the Civic Charter – The Global Framework for People’s Participation. In the coming years, the Centre wants to continue adding value to the civil society sectors’ initiatives on securing and increasing civic space by implementing a three-pronged programme: (1) Promoting Citizen Participation through the Civic Charter; (2) Building Effective Multi-Sector Alliances for Civic Rights; and (3) Occupying New Spaces for Civic Participation.
The Centre is seeking an experienced Campaigns and Outreach Coordinator, who wants to support and develop communications and alliance-building around the Civic Rights project. The coordinator will work closely with the Civic Rights project team as well as with the Centre’s Programme and Communications Teams to develop an ambitious communications and outreach agenda towards defending civic rights globally. As the programme is in its developmental phase, the Centre is seeking a creative and pro-active individual who is flexible in taking on different tasks, and ready to take ownership to fulfil our ambitious plans and ideas.
