Partnerships Officer

The Paris Peace Forum is an initiative launched in 2018 to create a multi-actor platform in Paris to address global governance issues. Throughout the year, the Forum works to strengthen the governance of global commons, such as space, cyberspace, or the oceans, and improve the international management of global issues, the development of AI and disruptive technologies, or the ecological and social transition of the economy. Its annual event gathers heads of state, government and international organizations, as well as civil society and private sector leaders, around concrete initiatives with an emphasis on the global South.

The team of the Permanent Secretariat of the association, composed of varied and versatile profiles (diplomacy, public relations, communications, programming, operations, etc.), is currently looking for a “Partnerships Officer” to reinforce its teams.
