Policy and Public Affairs Manager, World Cancer Research Fund International
Are you looking for an exciting opportunity to be part of the global community concerned with fighting the scourge of obesity, cancer and non-communicable diseases? WCRF International is looking for a talented and committed individual to play a key role in our policy activities. Our Policy and Public Affairs (PPA) Department, established in 2011, works at the global level to encourage the adoption of effective policies to prevent cancer and other non-communicable diseases through healthier diets and body weights, more physical activity and lower levels of alcohol intake. Our work ultimately aims to help people meet the WCRF International Recommendations for Cancer Prevention.
A major task of the PPA Manager will be managing a groundbreaking project of the PPA Department on keeping the evidence for policy updated. The project will involve substantial evidence reviews and require a high level of technical competence in understanding the effects and effectiveness of policy actions. The post-holder will play a lead role in this review process, draft outputs, and manage an external group of advisors.
