.We are pleased to announce that newly appointed CONCORD Director Seamus Jeffreson has now started his position as of 1 October, which will include a two month handover period in the Secretariat with outgoing Director Olivier Consolo until December. TRIALOG says thank you to Olivier and wishes him all the best for his future.
Seamus has 20 years’ experience in EU international development and humanitarian work in strategy, programme development, analysis and reporting, project management, technical assistance, training and representation. He joins CONCORD following working for 8 years in Ethiopia and the Middle East with various NGOs including the International Medical Corps, CARE, Trocaire and Cafod. He has also worked in Brussels for several years working on Eastern Europe and the Balkans, including some time at the European Commission.
Seamus is strongly committed to civil society as a collective force for positive change. He is eager to get to know the confederation better, its diverse needs and capacities.
During the handover period and later this coming winter, Seamus looks forward to meeting many members in person, and will for this purpose travel to several national platforms and meet the members based in Brussels.
TRIALOG sends a very warm welcome to Seamus Jefferson and is looking forward to a fruitful cooperation.
