We are looking for an office assistant to support our work to empower people to control technology. The person will work 15-35 hours per week with our team in the Berlin office and will support the FSFE's Berlin office operations.
Free Software Foundation Europe is a charity that empowers users to control technology. Software is deeply involved in all aspects of our lives and it is important that technology empowers rather than restricts us. Free Software gives everybody the rights to use, understand, adapt and share software. These rights help support other fundamental freedoms like freedom of speech, press and privacy.
The FSFE helps individuals and organisations to understand how Free Software contributes to freedom, transparency, and self-determination. It enhances users' rights by abolishing barriers to Free Software adoption, encourages people to use and develop Free Software, and provides resources to enable everyone to further promote Free Software in Europe.
We are involved in legal, economic, political, and technical projects around Free Software (see our work areas and our campaigns).
Our work is made possible by a community of volunteers, supporters, donors, and staff. The office assistant's job will be to be the administrative backbone of our operations.
We are looking for a reliable, well-organised, and punctual team player who will ensure the reliable handling of office procedures and thus support us in making the world better for future generations.

Your personal data will be deleted 3 months after we have made our decision. The closing date for applications is Sunday 4 October 2020.
Free Software is meant to serve everyone regardless of their age, ability or disability, gender identity, sex, race, religion, or sexual orientation.
