Healthy Recovery Project Manager

Apply by 30 September 2020 1800 CET

We are seeking a highly motivated and proactive individual to support EPHA’s advocacy and policy work on the post-COVID-19 Healthy Recovery, having the European Green Deal at its centre. The successful applicant will support projects relevant for this policy field at EPHA that may include, but are not limited to, engaging with and galvanising the medical community to raise awareness about the health impacts of air pollution and actively engage key health stakeholders in an international campaign against the impacts of transport related air pollution on people’s health.

We anticipate this role will develop in line with EPHA’s work on the European Green Deal and a Healthy Recovery, with the post-holder shaping future priorities and responsibilities. This will be a full-time role, initially under a 6 months contract (renewable dependent on performance and further funding). Overarching direction and role objectives will come from EPHA’s Secretary General.

We offer the chance to join a growing international network of organisations campaigning for improving population health in Europe by reducing health inequalities and to help shape policies with huge implications for public health in Europe and beyond. The successful candidate will have a solid track record in the management of international, especially EU funded, projects.

The post is full-time (38hr/week) and is offered in accordance with Belgian national legislation according to EPHA’s salary grade. All applicants must be qualified, eligible, and able to work in Belgium without requiring a work visa.  We are unfortunately not able to provide financial assistance to relocate to Brussels/Belgium.
