The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) is seeking to recruit a Public Policy Coordinator based in its Brussels office, ideally beginning as soon as possible or at a mutually agreed date.
ESMO’s public policy activities support ESMO and its members by engaging with EU authorities and international institutions on issues related to the practice and profession of medical oncology. They help ESMO and its members in their mission and activities by providing specific support concerning political, European and global affairs. Proactive in public policy in Brussels & Geneva, ESMO’s political initiatives aim to promote the medical oncology profession and keep cancer policy high on the European and global agendas. ESMO’s Public Policy activities have a dual focus: European and Global. They address topics of concern to ESMO and its members, with a specific focus on promoting the practice and the profession of medical oncology and diminishing the discrepancies in the quality of cancer care. The Committees collaborate closely with leading oncology societies, international organizations (eg World Health Organization) and patient groups and coordinate their activities with key stakeholders to assure that the oncology community speaks with one united voice.
The role of the Public Policy Coordinator will be to assist the Head of Public Policy in implementing a wide-ranging portfolio related to cancer policy at EU level. The role will require a deep understanding of the health policy environment (with a focus on cancer), excellent organizational, communication and interpersonal skills, attention to detail and the ability to multi-task. The Coordinator will be expected to be independent and proactive and will also be willing to travel if need be (for example, ESMO Congresses). This is an exciting role for someone who wants to be involved in the oncology sector, has an understanding of health policy and is willing to learn and to grow.
This position is essential to the Public Policy team and the Coordinator may be asked to take additional responsibilities as needs arise.
To apply, please provide by 06th December 2019 via e‐mail (preferred) or regular mail and in English only to Jovica Ljubojevic, HR Coordinator, ESMO, Via Ginevra 4, 6900 Lugano, Switzerland, email@example.com.
NB: Applications that do not fulfil the above criteria, will not be considered.
