The Alliance for Middle East Peace is seeking a Director to head its newest office in Europe

ALLMEP is a coalition of over 100 organizations – and tens of thousands of Israelis and Palestinians, Arabs and Jews – building people-to-people cooperation, coexistence, equality, shared society, mutual understanding, and peace among their communities in the Middle East.  We add stability in difficult times of crisis and build an environment for peace over the long term.

Together, through our network, we work to bring greater resources and attention to the entire community of peace-builders. ALLMEP works internationally to educate key audiences, including opinion makers, elected representatives, government officials, American and international funders, and the international community about the critical opportunities and needs of people-to-people efforts.  In the region, we work to build a community among our members, create better communication and coordination in the field, build their organizations’ capacities, develop best practices, and serve as a platform for partnership and cooperation.

ALLMEP is looking to hire its first European Director to head its new office, ALLMEP Europe, a French registered general association.  This position requires a highly motivated, entrepreneurial manager with a clear track record.

The specific tasks of the European Director would include:

  • Supporting programmatic grants going to people-to-people work from the European Union and its member states.
  • Developing programming within France and the EU, helping to deal with the tensions that are created by the ongoing Middle East conflict, utilizing our diverse membership.
  • Building support for the International Fund within the European Union and member states. The American legislative process must be matched by European contributions.

  • Training and assisting our members in accessing funds and building support for  the work our members do.
  • Working with private business and philanthropy to increase the collective pool of resources available to peace and reconciliation work in shared society (within Israel) and cross-border activities (between Israel and communities in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem).
  • Ensuring the Alliance for Middle East Peace is a visible, reputable and recognized international coordinating entity in the Middle East peace process conversation.
  • Managing the general association and securing support for it.

In addition to the European-specific tasks of the director they would also be expected to:
