Help us create a better, healthier world

The Health and Environment Alliance (HEAL) is the leading not-for-profit organisation addressing how the environment affects human health in the European Union (EU) and beyond. We work to shape laws and policies that promote planetary and human health and protect those most affected by pollution.

The HEAL secretariat is growing and getting busier and busier. To help manage this increased workload, and ensure that our advocacy and policy teams focus on effecting change, we are looking for a new Finance and Operations Officer to join our Brussels-based team – we need someone who:

…   is passionate about HEAL’s mission and ensuring we can lead healthy lives on a healthy planet

…   has a strong experience working as a finance and administration officer, preferably in the not-for-profit sector

…   has excellent attention to detail and strong organisational and planning skills

Does this sound like you?

As our new Finance and Operations Officer, you’ll join the Operations team where you’ll provide financial administration and operational support to the Head of Finance, the Director of Operations and the wider Senior Management Team. You’ll take care daily filing, bookkeeping and budget and accounting-related tasks, support regular Human Resources processes, and provide general administrative and logistical support to the team. You’ll basically help us run a tight ship!

You’ll join a friendly and supportive team of passionate change leaders. We’re based in Brussels in a beautiful office at Mundo-Madou, an ethical building located in the heart of the city.

  • A net 154 EUR teleworking and internet allowance per month (our team works flexibly – from the office and from home)
  • Up to 5 additional days of leave each year

You can count on us to help you learn and grow in the job so you can be successful. After completing a robust onboarding programme, you’ll have access to training and learning opportunities.
