The Ground Coordinator will support the Europe- and Asia-based GLF team in the organization of the GLF Amazon digital conference. He/she will be pivotal in managing the multi-stakeholder engagement process as we co-create the GLF Amazon conference.

The incumbent will further provide on-the-ground project management and coordination support for the successful delivery of the conference, planned for September 2021.
The main objective of this assignment is to connect and represent the GLF in the region as it pertains to the GLF Amazon event. With GLF Amazon, planned for September 2021, we will be looking for local innovations ready for replication and scaling. We aim to provide a platform to the most promising innovators and change-makers from all sectors. With the global GLF Secretariat in Bonn, the Ground Coordinator will be crucial in making connections with key actors and partners (including donors and sponsors) from the Amazon region.
The Ground Coordinator will also play an important role with event logistics and coordination, particularly those relating to local partners.
The incumbent will report to the GLF Assistant Global Coordinator and the GLF Engagement and Growth Coordinator, who is also co-leading the GLF Amazon team.
