Project Assistant – Participatory & Deliberative Democracy

Full Time (negotiable)  |  Remote

Coglobal is embarking on a 3-year partnership with various European and global organizations to establish and develop a European network of practitioners and researchers in the field of democracy, civic deliberation, participation and citizenship education. This Network will be spread across Europe and Associated Countries to foster inclusive democratic innovations for the long-term. 

We are currently seeking a Project Assistant to join Coglobal’s EC Programs team, which is responsible for making this initiative possible.

About the Role

As a project assistant, you will support the capacity-building programs delivered by Coglobal in coordination with People Powered. Your responsibilities will include assisting in the management of tools, training courses, mentorships, and other learning activities designed to enhance participatory agendas for governments and organizations in Europe. You will also contribute to the overall implementation of the project and the broader Coglobal strategy.

The position offers remote work arrangements, with the option of co-working with other staff members in Malaga, Spain. While the position is initially offered as full-time, we are open to negotiating and adapting working hours based on individual needs. We welcome applications from candidates located anywhere in Europe who have easy and frequent access to Malaga.

As Project Assistant we expect you to carry out the following tasks, among others:

Desired Experience and Skills

We understand that there are a wide variety of paths toward the skills necessary for the position. As such, there are no formal educational requirements, as long as the applicant can demonstrate proficiency in the desired skills. We do, however, value experience gained through educational programs.

Compensation and Benefits

The annual gross salary for this position is 30,000 euros. The standard Spanish job contract will be offered, which includes public healthcare, retirement plans, and a minimum of 23 working days of paid vacation. This normally implies 1 full week in Easter, 3 full weeks in Summer and 2 full weeks in Christmas. Coglobal’s work calendar is adjusted to account for local bank holidays in Malaga.

The Coglobal Team

You will be joining a small, yet supportive and dedicated team. We are guided by our core values of responsibility, equity, inclusion, enthusiasm, effort, and innovation. All team members actively participate in organizational planning and decision-making, which includes attending 3-4 in-person organizational meetings per year in Malaga.

Desired start date

September 1st is ideal, but we’re flexible.
