An exciting opportunity has arisen with a national charity to lead on a ground-breaking project to improve patient outcomes and care planning in emergency care across the health and care system in the UK.

The Resuscitation Council (UK) is a charity whose purpose is to save lives by educating members of the public, medical, nursing and ambulance practitioners and other healthcare workers in all aspects of resuscitation. Our primary objective is promoting high-quality practice in all aspects of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to improve survival.  

ReSPECT is a process for creating personalised recommendations for a person’s clinical care in a future emergency in which they are unable to make or express choices. It provides health and care professionals responding to that emergency with a summary of recommendations to help them to make immediate decisions about that person’s care and treatment, and can be complementary to a wider process of advance/anticipatory care planning. The ReSPECT form and supporting materials have been developed by a Working Group comprising more than 30 stakeholder representatives including patients, Royal Colleges and the Care Quality Commission.

Since launching the ReSPECT website in February this year (, we have had a great number of expressions of interest in adopting ReSPECT and joining our new Implementation Network.

We are now looking to recruit a part-time ReSPECT Manager to manage the development of this project and lead on the implementation of ReSPECT in health and care settings across the UK.
In this key role, you will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the project, being the main point of contact for both the Steering Group and healthcare organisations.

The ideal candidate will be an enthusiastic and motivated individual with excellent communication and organisational skills, capable of working effectively with a wide range of stakeholders and healthcare professionals across different health and care settings.
You will have experience of managing complex projects involving stakeholders from across the health and care sectors, and possess a very good understanding of health and social care systems in the UK. You will have a good understanding of key issues within resuscitation and emergency care, and a commitment to a person-centred approach to healthcare and care delivery.

A degree or equivalent in healthcare science is desirable, as is experience of working for a healthcare provider organisation.

Please send a CV and cover letter outlining how you meet the requirements of this post to by 17:00 on Friday 30 June. Interviews will be held at the Resuscitation Council (UK) offices on Monday 10 July.
