Intern at EUPHA Office
EUPHA looking for a communication and marketing strategic officer
Over the years, the European Public Health Association (EUPHA) has increased its visibility and impact in Europe. For this, several tools have been developed (e.g. active twitter account, mailing list to key European-level policymakers), but is this enough?
If EUPHA wants to have an influence on European policymakers both at European level (EU and WHO Europe) as well as – through our national associations – at national level, EUPHA needs to set up a communication and marketing strategy. The short-term Communication & marketing strategic officer will look at:
- Which tools have been developed and are they effective?
- Which tools are missing and should be developed?
- Should EUPHA have a permanent presence in Brussels (European Union)?
- Should EUPHA have a permanent presence in Copenhagen (WHO Europe)?
- How can EUPHA put a long term communication and marketing strategy in place in the coming years?
EUPHA is looking for an enthusiastic and experienced communication specialist at European level, preferably in the Brussels region. Applications should include a CV and motivational letter and should be sent by 15 July 2018 to: firstname.lastname@example.org. For further information, please contact the Executive Director, Dr Zeegers Paget.
