Opportunity with CSH - Research and Communications Officer

Monday, 5 June, 2017

We are still looking for a dynamic, creative and analytical Research and Communications Officer (volunteer position) to generate excitement and interest in the work of Centre for Sustainable Healthcare. The successful applicant will gain insight into cutting-edge initiatives in sustainability and health while getting useful experience of working in a flexible multi-dimensional organisation.

The successful applicant will play a key role in coordinating our communications strategy and collating data and success stories of our projects to be made available to our stakeholders and the wider public. This is an opportunity to develop sustainability, healthcare, communications, research and administrative skills; to be mentored by experienced environment and health professionals; and to learn about an exciting and emerging field.

This voluntary work experience is a temporary post that will last 3 months around the months of June, July, August and September. We are, however, open to shorter or longer timespans. This can be discussed during the interview stage.

Our previous volunteers have come from the UK, France, Canada, Brazil and Japan and have gone on to work in academia, sustainability consultancies, environmental charities, medicine and SMEs.  Several, such as Sarah Walpole and Isobel Braithwaite are still connected formally with us and we keep in touch with many more.
