IGLYO — The International LGBTQI Youth & Student Organisation is a member-based youth and student network, with 108 Member Organisations in 43 Council of Europe countries. IGLYO’s vision is a world where we, young people in all our diversity, are able to express and define our own sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions and variations in sex characteristics, and are able to participate fully in all aspects of life, rise to our full potential, and enjoy respect and positive recognition.
IGLYO strives to ensure the voices and experiences of LGBTQI young people are present and heard by decision-makers at European and international levels, by implementing and designing research and policy work in areas such as inclusive education, health and bias-motivated hate-crime and hate-speech. To create an influential collective of young activists, IGLYO also builds the confidence, skills and experience of LGBTQI youth through cross-cultural exchange and peer learning activities. More information about IGLYO’s work can be found at www.iglyo.com.
IGLYO is currently structured as follows:
The secretariat of IGLYO is based in Brussels, Belgium, and comprises a small 10-person team, working in a variety of different areas.

There is no typical week in this role. From day to day you could be developing a new programme, writing a grant application, liaising with the advocacy team, and carrying out performance management with your direct reports. It requires a flexible, enthusiastic and self-motivated person with a passion for LGBTQI liberation.
