The European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) is looking for a full-time Press Freedom Monitoring Officer to join a diverse team of eight staff based in Brussels.
The EFJ is the largest journalists’ organisation in Europe representing 73 national journalists’ trade unions and professional associations in 45 countries. It is recognised by the European Union and the Council of Europe as the representative voice of journalists in Europe.
The Press Freedom Monitoring Officer will work on the Media Freedom Rapid Response (MFRR), an EU-funded project launched in 2020 which supports journalists under threat in the EU and candidate countries. It is based on three pillars: monitoring media freedom violations, supporting journalists and media organisations and advocating for media freedom in Europe. The EFJ is part of a consortium of six European media freedom organisations.
