Job opportunity: Coordinator of the secretariat

5 July 2019

OCTs and OCTA

The Association of Overseas Countries and Territories of the European Union (OCTA) was constituted in March 2003 by the governments of the Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) and registered in Belgium as a not-for-profit association (ASBL). Out of 25 OCTs, all the permanently inhabited territories (21) are currently members of OCTA as well as the French Southern Antarctic Lands - TAAF. OCTA serves as a platform through which the OCTs realize their common goals by working collectively through cooperation, policy dialogue, promotion of common positions and partnerships for the sustainable development of OCTs.

In 2015, OCTA initiated the setting-up of a permanent secretariat in Brussels and has since recruited four full-time Officers: Coordinator, Administrative & Finance, EU Programmes and Energy & Environment.

Job description

The Coordinator primarily contributes to manage the OCTA Secretariat and the team of 3 officers, and to ensure the implementation of all activities, including the direct management of some EU-funded projects (innovation). He/she will report directly to the ExCo President.
