Team Positions

Head Coordinator

The Head Coordinator has the general overview of the EOM, establishes contact with speakers and cooperates with local partner organizations, and is responsible for the general contact with the participants. Alongside that, the Head Coordinator is responsible for the monitoring of observer teams on Election Day and is also responsible for drafting our EOM report.

Press Coordinator

The tasks of the Press Officer are primarily to have a strategy for communication outreach for Silba before, during and after the EOM. This entails communicating with local and international media in order to get as much awareness and outreach as possible for Silba’s activities during the mission and on Election Day. In conjunction with the EP elections, our press team will also execute a social media information campaign. Skills and experience in communication and media are desired in this position!

Financial Coordinator

The Financial Coordinator is responsible for the financial part of the EOM, which means having a general overview of the budget, its planning and communication to the rest of the team. During the mission, the role entails making sure the mission stays on budget by keeping track of expenses, and being responsible for all transactions. Experience with accounting or a flair for numbers is sought after in this position!

Logistics Coordinator

Given that the EOM will be conducted within Denmark, we will have two local logistics coordinators stationed in each city—Odense, Copenhagen, Aarhus, and Sønderborg. The National Logistics Coordinator will collaborate with these local coordinators to oversee logistical operations and ensure seamless coordination across all locations. Speaking Danish, and having experience with the country/cities are competences highly valued in this position!

There are additional ad-hoc tasks within the above positions, which in most cases will require teamwork between the different coordinators. Teamwork skills are a necessity for all positions.


The workload will be substantial in the weeks before the EOM as well as during the program, which you should be prepared for before applying. We are looking forward to receiving your application!

Feel free to contact if you have any questions regarding the positions or the tasks in relation to the EOM.
