Want to work at a new, non-profit, mission-led Network with big ambitions for changing the land and housing status quo?

In June we will be launching the European Community Land Trust Network. Our aim is to support the emergence and development of Community Land Trusts across Europe so that they become recognised as a mainstream option for affordable, inclusive and sustainable land use and housing.

We are now recruiting for the first staff member, the Network Coordinator. They will set the strategy, lead the advocacy approach, develop partnerships with industry players and communities and appoint the wider team.


As a newly forming Network, you will be the first staff member of the European CLT Network Secretariat and will work with the Community Land Trust Brussels team who have been ‘incubating’ the Network as it transitions to a standalone organisation. One of your first activities will be to appoint the wider Network Secretariat. You will be accountable to the Network’s Board and General Assembly.

In addition, you will:

  • Lead the development and delivery of the Network strategic plan, working with the Secretariat staff, Network membership and Board of Trustees.
  • Ensure the Secretariat develops and delivers projects and services that are valued by Network Members and support objectives set out in the strategic plan.
  • Lead on the Network’s advocacy strategy, developing the Network’s connections and profile.
  • Lead the development of partnerships with stakeholders, including industry, non-profits and communities.
  • Lead on Network development and fundraising to ensure financial sustainability.
  • Work with the Board of Trustees to ensure the Network is well governed and managed.
