As leader in development consultancy, we, GOPA Worldwide Consultants, implement projects in developing and transition economies on behalf of national and international development partners, national authorities, industry representatives and civil society organisations. We understand that behind each development project there is a human story. For this reason, our people-centred approach ensures that the projects we implement deliver the best possible outcome in terms of socially inclusive growth and poverty reduction and have a sustainable and measurable impact on peoples’ lives.

To strengthen our team in our Governance and Economic Development department we are looking for a

Expert Relations Manager/ Recruiter (m/f/d) in international development cooperation
with primary responsibility for managing the implementation of the Policy Support Facility Framework Contract Lot 3 (Trade and market access)

to start as soon as possible at our Headquarters in Bad Homburg or home based.

EU trade policy operates in a global trading environment that is evolving constantly. An increasing number of developments present challenges to the rules-based, multilateral trading system. In response to this changing international trading environment, and in accordance with EU foreign policy, the European Commission presented a new trade and investment strategy in October 2015.
In this context, the Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI) launched the Framework Contract (FWC) “Policy Support Facility for the Implementation of EU Foreign Policy”. This FWC provides expertise for the implementation of EU foreign policy pursuing EU or mutual interest. The objective of the FWC is to provide – through individual assignments, defined and contracted through specific contracts – expertise that can be mobilised at short notice. GOPA was contracted to provide expertise in the area of trade and market access (Lot 3).
