JOB AD. We are hiring! Airborne Wind Europe Communication and Project Manager Brussels, Belgium
Location: Airborne Wind Europe office, Brussels, Belgium
Work percentage: 100% (optional part-time)
Expected start date: 15 February 2022
Type of contract: Indefinite
Closing date: 20 January 2022
The industry association Airborne Wind Europe is recruiting a Communication and Project Manager for its office in Brussels. Airborne Wind Europe is the association of the European Airborne Wind Energy industry. It promotes the generation of energy from high altitude winds by means of Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) systems. AWE is an emerging renewable energy technology with a great potential to significantly contribute to the future energy mix. Airborne Wind Europe represents the interests of the nascent AWE industry as well as academia towards decision makers in politics and business. The secretariat of Airborne Wind Europe currently consists of a small but highly motivated, international team. We are eager to make the AWE sector grow by supporting our members – many of them still young start-ups – by advocating for AWE being recognised in policies and regulation.
The selected candidate will work on external communications (press, public, and relevant stakeholders) and for further developing and implementing the communication and marketing strategy of Airborne Wind Europe. Additionally, the candidate will work on policy and regulatory aspects related to Airborne Wind Energy in the context of renewable energy transition as well as on project management activities in the context of international projects and the IEA Wind Task 48 on AWE. We expect that the new team member will be highly engaged in making AWE more widely known and in working jointly on all related activities.
