Policy Platform Volunteer (F/D/M) - EUR Policy

We are looking for motivated and talented volunteers for the development of Volt Europa’s Policy Platform. Building towards further Pan-European integration between all different teams within Volt Europa, this platform is designed to streamline the creation, sharing, and collaboration of policies within our organisation and with external stakeholders. As a general volunteer, you will have the opportunity to work on a variety of tasks that will help support the platform's development and rollout.

About the position

You will work closely with the members of the Policy Platform team on projects of your choice. Do not worry! Our current volunteers have very different backgrounds, which only made our team stronger. Technical experience is helpful, but not required. If in doubt, contact us!

Time commitment

The volunteer position is extremely flexible, and does not require a specific time commitment. Our members’ availability comes in all sorts of patterns. Some join only for the team meeting for 1h a week, and some others choose a more regular commitment. The key rule here is: it’s up to you! 

We would love for you to contact us, so we can show you around. After that, we can have a chat on the most realistic scenario for the future, and - if you’d like - we can link you to the projects that suit your schedule. The only thing we ask for is good expectation management. If we are all truthful about our commitment expectations, then collaborations will be way more likely to succeed.

You will 

  • Join our team meetings for 1h a week
  • Spend any additional time you choose to commit connecting with our team members and help out with a variety of projects or make a project proposal of your own
  • Gain lots of experience in a company-like environment
  • Help build and maintain the policy infrastructure of Volt Europa

You are 

  • A dynamic learner, with an open mindset and willing to work within the ever-changing framework of a volunteer organisation
  • Passionate for politics and policy-making

If you are unsure of what to do exactly, but would like to help out, be sure to contact us!

As a volunteer, this role offers the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of areas while contributing to an important cause. If you are a dynamic, self-motivated individual with a passion for politics and technology we would love to hear from you.
