The ECF is looking for a new Managing Director

Deadline: November 25, 2017.

European Cultural Foundation:
The European Cultural Foundation (ECF) is a grant-making and impact-driven foundation. Established in 1954 in Geneva, and now based in Amsterdam, the organisation has roughly 30 staff members of a range of nationalities. The objective of ECF, an organisation in the public interest, is to support and promote cultural activities of a European nature.

ECF believes culture is the space to imagine and negotiate ways of living together - bridging the divides in our communities, and enabling Europe to become a shared home where people live together in freedom, solidarity and diversity. Equality and democracy are key drivers of ECF’s strategic plan 2017-2020, and a key value for the organisation.

The organisation supports and highlights positive voices in these turbulent times of global economic, social and environmental pressures. ECF gives a voice to those who have been excluded from the public sphere by supporting cultural change makers and fostering inspiring collaborations.

Due to the retirement of the current Managing Director we are now looking for a visionary leader who can guide the organisation in reaching these ambitions.

Role definition of the new Managing Director:
The new Managing Director is a strong, energetic and creative leader, with a European, philanthropic mindset. An inspirational, daring manager with excellent communications skills, who is not afraid to make choices, sets out a clear direction for the organisation, and is hands on in ‘making it happen’. As an innovative thinker, you’ll find ways to achieve the values ECF advocates throughout its work.

The Managing Director reports to the Supervisory Board of ECF.
