Call for Expert: Development of a Competence Framework

Eurodesk Brussels Link and the European Youth Information and Counselling Agency (ERYICA) are looking for an expert to lead the work on the creation of a European competence framework for the Youth Information Worker occupation.

The two networks have collaborated for the past year mapping out the recognition of the Youth Information occupation in Europe. In 2021 they aim to create a competence framework to support the implementation and recognition of the occupation across Europe. They have established a European working group of 8 Youth Information Workers who will help design the competence framework to be launched in Autumn 2021. The networks are now looking for an external expert to lead them through the process of designing the competence framework.

This work includes:

  • Facilitation of working group meetings. / 2 WG meetings are foreseen in winter/spring 2021 to brainstorm and collect input for the competence framework. This requires facilitation of the process, of working group meetings and compilation of the outcomes.
  • Writing of the Competence Framework publication.

The expert will compile the outcomes of the working group meetings and internal consultations, complement with necessary desk research to structure and write the content of the publication. The expert is expected to write the publication with support from the project team.

The work is expected to be carried out from January till September 2021.

We are looking for someone with:

  • experience in the creation of competence frameworks, recognition and qualification systems, or quality labels;
  • good knowledge of the European youth sector, youth work and/or youth information work;
  • consulting experience. Having led longer processes is seen as an advantage but not required.
  • facilitation and leadership skills of intercultural teams;
  • capacity and expertise to tackle projects on a European level and adopt a European perspective, respectful of diverse national situations;
  • strong written and verbal English communication skills; experience writing English publications is seen as an advantage.
  • strong analytical competences;
  • organised and structured working methods.
