  • Promoting more and better palliative care
  • Ensuring that existing laws against euthanasia and assisted suicide are not weakened or repealed

The successful candidate will take over from a long-standing, pro bono Campaign Director. Chief among their responsibilities will be:

  • Directing strategy: the CEO will report to the Board of Directors but will be responsible for day to day decision making, including developing and maintaining relationships with key decision-makers and campaigners
  • Principal media spokesperson: CNK fulfils many print and broadcast media engagements concerning our work and emerging news stories
  • Developing outreach: CNK is often contacted in isolation by students, schools and organisers of debates; the successful CEO will take a proactive approach in ensuring that public debate is well-informed and that CNK can respond to this need
  • Fundraising: Care Not Killing is a small non-profit and the CEO must be an effective fundraiser
