Fundraising Coordinator (16 hrs/wk)
Clean Clothes Campaign International Office is recruiting a Fundraising Coordinator (16 hrs/wk)
based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands or Brussels, Belgium
Starting date: as soon as possible
Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) is dedicated to improving working conditions and supporting the empowerment of workers in the global garment industry. In the almost 30 years of our existence, an effective global network of more than 230 trade unions and NGOs has been created. The role of the International Office (IO) includes the coordination of the network, maintaining quality, coherence and adherence to our vision, mission and principles, and facilitating the development of policies and protocols.

The Amsterdam office hosts two teams: the International Office (IO), which supports the CCC global network, and the Dutch Schone Kleren Campagne (SKC), which coordinates CCC activities in the Netherlands. These two teams are supported by IT specialists, an HR Coordinator, an Office Manager, a Fundraising Coordinator and a small financial team. In total, the organisation employs 25 staff within one legal entity (Stichting Schone Kleren Campagne). The organization has no Executive Director; decision-making is based on consensus and non-hierarchical principles, within a clearly defined framework of self-steering teams. The coordination of organisational matters is performed by a Cross Team Body (CTB), in which both teams are represented. The CTB has three portfolio holders (Finances & Grant management, Fundraising, and HR & IT/Office management).
The organisation receives funding from a mix of governmental, institutional and private donors. This includes CCC being a member of the Fair, Green and Global (FGG) alliance which receives funding from the Strategic Partnership program of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Buza).
