About AMBER Alert Europe
AMBER Alert Europe is a foundation that assists in saving missing children at risk by connecting law enforcement with other police experts and with the public across Europe. AMBER Alert Europe advocates that one missing child is one too many and aims for zero missing children in Europe. The foundation brings together 38 official organisations, public authorities and business entities from 23 countries. AMBER Alert Europe also officially facilitates the Police Expert Network on Missing Persons (PEN-MP), the first and only official European missing persons police network, as well as the Task Force on AMBER Alerts.
As Public Affairs & Policy Officer, you are our key connection to other organisations in the field, as well as relevant European institutions. You are responsible for carrying out and pushing forward the programs and strategic plan of the organisation. You actively monitor and analyse the EU agenda and activities on their relevancy to AMBER Alert Europe and take the necessary actions. You participate in international projects, organize events, liaise with a large number of policy makers, legislators, partners and law enforcement experts and represent the organisation at events or in meetings.
Who are you?
You are optimistic by nature – believing that with time, energy, smarts, strategy and sheer will, you can change the world. You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves to create that change. You have an interest and a good understanding of human rights and children’s rights, as well as the child protection agenda. You know your way around the political circles of Brussels and maybe even The Hague unlike any other. You are a born networker – skilled at making and maintaining contact with a wide range of stakeholders. You are highly experienced in the field of Public Relations and European Affairs. Additionally, you can put your excellent communication skills to use to compile powerful and clear letters, position papers or subsidy applications, even under pressure.
