Gross salary: € 25,000

The Coordinator’s primary responsibility is to coordinate a well run, participatory, inclusive, high energy, high visibility and high impact coalition to fight the threat of SLAPPs. The main objective of the Coordinator is to strengthen the cohesion of the coalition, and ensure that CASE’s goals are achieved in a timely and effective manner. The role involves a lot of initiative and self-direction.

The selected candidate or host organisation will be responsible for the following work:

Coordination: ensure the cohesive delivery of coalition priorities as defined in the work plan. Monitor progress of work plans, identify obstacles, and help WGs solve problems that emerge. Ensure WGs are aligned on strategy and that coalition is operating cohesively.

Work plan development: coordinate an annual planning process in which the WGs identify goals and develop work plans, and then work with the Steering Committee (SC) to draft a single consolidated work plan for the entire coalition – identifying in the process resource needs, timeline, and prioritisation.

Governance and evaluation: ensure a transparent and inclusive process for decision-making via the SC in line with the CASE governance document. Chair the monthly SC calls. Act as a point of contact for coalition members interested in getting more involved and new groups who would like to join CASE. Review applications, vet, and admit new members in consultation with the SC.

Budgeting: work with subgrantees and the fund administrators to facilitate transfers of money, review contracts and grantee reports, and monitor progress of funded projects. Ensure efficient and timely cash flow. Prepare an annual budget for the coalition based on the work plan, and ensure strategic prioritisation and sequencing of work as funds are raised.

Fundraising: identify gaps in funding via consolidated work plan and work with WGs and SC to secure funding to plug these gaps. Identify opportunities for broader financial growth, working with fundraisers in participating organisations throughout the year to identify opportunities for funding and to develop and pitch proposals.

Evaluation: perform ongoing evaluation of CASE progress, functioning, and growth; extract lessons learned to ensure we’re learning and developing as we go.

Public communications: monitor and respond to enquiries sent to the mailing address (referring media enquiries to coalition members as and when appropriate). Work with relevant WGs to set up rotas and ensure CASE is responding in a timely manner to external developments and outreach.

Expansion of the regional network: Outreach to civil society organisations carrying out anti-SLAPP work on a national level across Europe to establish national groups and coalitions who will act as contact points to CASE during the transposition phase of the Anti-SLAPP Directive, and national-level partners in advancing other CASE objectives

Build a more inclusive, participatory and diverse coalition: work with the SC and relevant members to expand, engage, and strengthen CASE membership – ensuring clear communication within the network so all participants are kept up-to-date of developments and encouraged to engage. Identify where levels of participation are falling and help solve problems in consultation with SC. Identify stakeholders who would be strategic to include and reach out to them, including those representing different public watchdogs and unrepresented European countries.
