Open vacancies

Policy Officer

An exciting opportunity has arisen to be the Policy Officer for the European Health Management Association (EHMA). This is a great chance for people who have some experience but may be in the early stages of their policy career to build a dynamic portfolio of work. Your contributions will enable EHMA to have an outstanding range of policy work that leverages the expertise of our diversity of health care audiences and engages decision makers.

You would bring the equivalent of a year of experience of policy work in the health and EU affairs. You will have excellent fluency in English, and be able to write robust and succinct policy pieces for a variety of audiences. A brilliant team-work spirit, an amazing eye for detail, and a willingness to learn and grow.

Working at EHMA will provide you with a chance to build and refine your expertise in policy. We offer flexible working conditions, support and nurture our small team to thrive, and you get to be part of an association committed to improve the health and well-being of Europe’s citizens and communities by supporting effective health management across Europe.

You will have the opportunity to engage in various European policy networks, attend online and (in time) in-person conferences, meet with researchers, executives, and decision makers leading European health systems, and be part of the global response to addressing coronavirus.
