Get involved

In our work, we are supported by a large network of professional volunteers.

At Privacy First, we like to connect with people who care about our fundamental rights. People who, like us, see that our autonomy is being undermined by business and government revenue models with too much control drive.

We work with a small team and depend on professionals willing to share their specific knowledge and some of their time. Do you have and background in technology, communications, or legal? Send us your CV and a motivation. Then together we will explore the best way to showcase your qualities.

In the coming time, we will start to identify specifically on this page where we, as Privacy First, need support.


Legal researcher

Do you have a legal background, or are studying law and do you enjoy sorting out issues for the Foundation, or legal preparation? Then you might be the person we are looking for! Knowledge of the AVG or human rights is an advantage, but not a requirement. You quickly switch between different topics/areas, and while doing so, expand your ready knowledge of privacy law on a daily basis.


  • You will support the director and the lawyer/spokesperson with research and preparation of court cases or (spokesperson) campaigns.
  • You will prepare substantive pieces with news value through short briefings, which may include legal and journalistic factual research in various areas of law, such as privacy law.

We offer

  • A fun workplace and learning environment and the opportunity for hybrid working.
  • Guidance on your studies or during projects.
  • Coaching on the move.
  • An expense allowance.

Working hours by arrangement. We offer a volunteer position for six months at an exceptional workplace and after that, we will look together at career opportunities within the organisation.

Office & event assistant

Privacy First Foundation receives mail and e-mail and people in the office on a daily basis. This requires someone to help receive people or refer them to the right people within the organisation.

In addition, the Foundation is on the move. We organise 4 events a year, including the privacy awards (together with the ECP platform), and 3 special debates on location. We also organise 4 to 6 board meetings a year, and organise an inspiring directors' day twice a year.

Do you enjoy helping with this? You will replace some of the duties of the office manager and become the first point of contact for stakeholders and relations who contact us (by phone or email).

Do you have a background in hospitality, or are you naturally spontaneous, hospitable and a rule-breaker and can we count on you? Do you endorse our views and, with your positive attitude, help team building through your radiant and service-oriented presence? Maybe this is something for you.


  • You will take care of mail, answer e-mail or make sure it gets to the right person.
  • You will call back stakeholders or relations of the foundation and speak to them professionally.
  • You will support the planning of meetings and events, and assist at these events where necessary.
  • You will help the event manager, management and board to plan and organise.
  • You will help prepare presentations.
  • You will help maintain a script for the larger events. You evaluate each meeting.
  • You welcome guests and make sure they get the right information on time.
  • You roll up your sleeves at the time and day of the event and make sure everything runs smoothly and on time. You unburden yourself.
  • You order what is needed within budget and budget, and take deliveries.
  • You will help provide coffee, tea, and refreshments.
  • What does not go according to plan, you can solve responsibly and creatively in consultation with others.

We offer

  • A six-month volunteer position in an unusual workplace.
  • Prospect of advancement opportunities within the organisation.
