Clean Clothes Campaign / Schone Kleren Campagne is looking for

a Grant Manager (24hrs/week)

Based in the Netherlands or Belgium, starting asap


Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) is dedicated to improving working conditions and supporting the empowerment of workers – most of them women – in the global garment and sportswear industry. In the more than 30 years of our existence, an effective global network of more than 230 trade unions and NGOs has been created. Members and partners within the CCC global network are committed to a shared Global Strategic Framework, and cooperate in global working groups, as well as through national and regional coalitions. For more information on our recent campaigns and advocacy work, as well as our vision, mission and principles, you can visit

The Amsterdam office hosts two teams: the International Office (IO), which supports the CCC global network, and the Dutch Schone Kleren Campagne (SKC), which coordinates CCC activities in the Netherlands. These two teams are supported by IT specialists, a fundraising coordinator and a financial and HR team. In total, the organisation employs 26 staff within one legal entity (Stichting Schone Kleren Campagne). The organization has no Executive Director; decision-making is based on consensus and non-hierarchical principles, within a clearly defined framework of self-steering teams. The coordination of organisational matters is performed by a Cross Team Body (CTB), in which both teams are represented. The CTB has three portfolio holders (Finances & Grant management, Fundraising, and HR & IT/Office management).

CCC’s goals include being a diversity-based organisation in terms of gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality etc. We would like to be a reflection of society and are looking for people with a diversity of backgrounds and experiences. CCC also aims to offer an accommodating environment and conditions to all employees (for example, adapted working hours and workplace, provision of additional support etc).
