Grants Coordinator


A skilled coordinator with a hands-on attitude and previous experience with grantmaking.

Location:            Amsterdam

Closing date:  24 May 2024

Contract:        1 year, 1 FTE (37,5 hours/week), with the possibility for extension

Starting date: 15 July 2024


ECF is committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace. We encourage especially people to apply who experience discrimination or exclusion, because of race, age, gender, ability, education, identity and orientation or cultural backgrounds. We also prioritise climate awareness across all our actions.  


About the European Cultural Foundation


Our founders created the European Cultural Foundation (ECF) in 1954 as they envisioned a united Europe where citizens feel proudly European, a place where they can live, express themselves, work and dream freely, in diversity and harmony. Ever since the ECF promotes a European sentiment through developing and supporting cultural initiatives that let us share, experience and imagine Europe. We believe our mission is as urgent now as it was back then.


About the role

ECF has been an established grantmaker for European cultural initiatives for many decades. Our programmes have supported thousands of artists, cultural and media professionals, civil society activists, local cultural organisations and communities and public institutions in collaborating across more than 50 countries. Set up initially as European initiative to co-finance cultural responses to the Corona pandemic in 2020, the Culture of Solidarity Fund is a current flagship initiative among our grant schemes. It operates as a European partnership and grantmaking instrument for reacting in a flexible manner in times of increasing uncertainty. Additional grantmaking takes place in other existing programmes, often in collaboration with or on behalf of partner foundations.


You will be part of the team that manages the Culture of Solidarity Fund but also co-coordinates grantmaking processes of all other ECF Programmes. You will work closely with and be supervised by the Programme Manager of the Culture of Solidarity Fund and will formally report to the Head of Programmes. You will also collaborate with other managers and administrators of ECF Programmes, ECF’s Finance and Communications departments and with additional ECF teams who support our mission and programmatic goals.
