The Union is recruiting two (2) Program Officers to support its country partners develop and execute activities that expose how the tobacco industry is undermining public health.
The Program Officers will work closely with The Union’s STOP project lead and country-based staff to translate STOP resources and campaigns into country actions. They will help drive partner communication and engagement strategies, provide direct support to country staff and sub-grantees implementing advocacy strategies, and conduct investigations into industry activities.
The positions will be based out of The Union/Vital Strategies offices in New York City (valid work permit required). Remote based applicants will also be considered. These are one-year fixed term positions with the potential of extension, contingent upon program funds.
Vital Strategies is looking for a campaign manager to expose how the tobacco industry is undermining public health around the world.
The Campaign Manager will drive integrated communication strategies aligned with campaign themes, with an emphasis on media relations, digital communications, stakeholder engagement and strategic advertising. Reporting to the Director of the STOP partnership at Vital, the Campaign Manager will work closely with the Vital team on campaign planning, message development, announcement strategy, social media campaigns, digital marketing and event strategy. The Campaign Manager will liaise with communication staff from the four partner organizations to ensure alignment on strategies and content.
Conflict of Interest Disclaimer
The tobacco industry’s interests are fundamentally and irreconcilably in conflict with public health and, thus, with the work of STOP. This conflict of interest is not only encoded in our partner organizations, but it is enshrined in Article 5.3 of the WHO’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.
As such, STOP upholds a firm non-engagement policy with the tobacco industry and those furthering its interests. We reserve the right to refuse or exclude registrants from our activities due to their involvement with the tobacco industry, or if their interests align with the tobacco industry.
In advance of STOP events or activities, we may ask individuals and organizations to confirm if they have any conflicts of interest so that participants know they can take part in a secure and safe environment.
STOP’s mission as a global watchdog is to strengthen public health by exposing and countering the pernicious behavior of the Tobacco Industry and its proxies. The industry has a long history of undermining and intimidating public health professionals using a variety of techniques—STOP will not facilitate such behavior.
