Who wants to take over the communication and partnerships levers of cafébabel, the European magazine? The position is open to all those who dream of leading European communications campaigns and building associative partnerships, especially to enhance Cafébabel's European Network.

Babel International is the non-profit association that publishes pan-European online magazine "Cafébabel."

Available in six languages - English, French, German, Spanish, Italian and Polish - the site is supplied daily by a network of 1,500 authors, translators, photographers and videographers. On Cafébabel, we speak of Europe as the lives lived by young people everyday. Always in a dynamic and quirky style, sometimes fun and sometimes serious, we cover topics of society, politics, culture and lifestyle.

Cafébabel organises events (debates, parties), trainings for the members of its network of volunteers, and feature reports which we send young journalists 'on the ground' in different European capitals. These actions are organised in cooperation with a network of 20 local teams across Europe.
