Working at ECFR

ECFR (The European Council on Foreign Relations) is a pan-European initiative which seeks to conduct research and promote informed debate across Europe on the development of coherent, effective and values-based European foreign policy. It has offices in Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Rome, Sofia and Warsaw.  About ECFR

As a registered charity employing over 60 employees across Europe we continue to strive to be innovative and at the forefront of policy discussion. We  seek to enhance our development and contribution to the ECFR vision by continuing to invest in staff that offer a strong blend of skills, experience and strong belief in the aims of the organisation.

As a career diplomat, what I appreciate in my working at ECFR is the time spent on forward thinking and creativity. The pan-European nature of our network and the effort to reach out to various constituencies and interlocutors also definitely help in making ECFR such a stimulating workplace.
