Who we are

We aim to help our member countries improve their educational policy and practice and work towards ensuring more inclusive education systems.

Our working language is English. We also publish some key documents in the languages of our member countries (currently 24 languages).

The ID team

We are looking for a suitably qualified and experienced person to join our Information Dissemination (ID) Team. This is the Agency’s communications team, responsible for the production of digital and printed materials. The team’s work includes copy-editing, formatting, printing and distribution of Agency publications, ensuring accessibility of Agency materials, co-ordinating translations, web editing, as well as creating content for digital media outputs.

The IDA position

The Information Dissemination Assistant role is part-time (four days per week). It will be offered initially on a one-year contract.

We are looking for a native English speaker with excellent copy-writing, editing and proof-reading skills. Our ideal candidate is someone with professional experience in digital media/marketing and in print and electronic media production. Strong attention to detail and proven experience in a similar role are important. The candidate must have good team-working skills, but also be prepared to work independently. Time management skills are essential. Experience with a range of IT tools and programs and a willingness to learn new IT skills are required.

Familiarity with templates and styles in Microsoft Word and with accessibility features in Adobe Acrobat Pro would be an advantage. Second language skills, knowledge of plain English principles, an awareness of information accessibility and an interest in the inclusive education field are desirable.

This role involves home-based working, using web-based tools to collaborate with colleagues around Europe. It will also require occasional travel.
