Policy Advisor


Overall description

Copa-Cogeca, the biggest EU organisation representing European farmers and agri-cooperatives, is looking for an experienced, well-organised, and self-motivated Policy Advisor to join our agricultural commodities team.

The Policy Advisor on Organic Farming, Aquaculture, Tobacco, Rice and Honey primary duties are to provide policy analysis, build positions with members, and finally elaborate and implement advocacy strategies targeting EU public bodies and stakeholders. To do so, and as part of the agricultural commodities team, she/he is managing and developing the expertise of the related working parties in close collaboration with the Copa-Cogeca Secretariat team and its members. This position represents a unique opportunity to evolve in an exciting international environment at the crossroad of many industries while working for a sector in perpetual evolution and at the core of any society, farming. This position requires strategic thinking, great organisation, and prioritization skills, as well as the ability to plan ahead and meet tight deadlines with a high degree of care and diplomacy. We are looking for a candidate who already has experience of European affairs, preferably in connection with the topics she/he will have to deal with, and who is able to propose policy initiatives and implement strategies in close collaboration with Working parties' chairs and members. The successful candidate will have strong verbal and written communication skills in English (some level of French is strongly desired, and Italian and Spanish are an asset) and the true willingness to support the interest of European organic, aquaculture, tobacco, rice and honey producers.
