New job opportunities to work with us

We are excited to be advertising five new job vacancies at RCUK. We are looking to expand our organisation with people who are as passionate as we are about saving lives, and who can use their skills to help us deliver our organisation’s vision.  

By 2030:  

  • Everyone should receive appropriate cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) treatment in clinical and care settings, underpinned by the comprehensive availability of appropriate clinical guidance, training and life-long learning.  
  • Survival rates for cardiac arrests should match world-leading comparators. 
  • Everyone affected by involvement in a cardiac arrest and the provision of resuscitation receives appropriate, personalised support. 
  • Resuscitation has become a mechanism to reduce social inequalities, not another measure of them.  

The five new roles we are advertising today will help us to get there. These are: 

We are acutely aware of the impact COVID-19 has had on ways of working and that is why we want to be as flexible as possible. We are all currently working from home due to the pandemic, but once we reopen the office, work can be undertaken at home and / or in the office (Tavistock House, London), at the successful applicant’s choice.  

Some travel to the office or other locations will be required as part of the role, but reasonable adjustments, such as enabling the postholder’s participation through digital technology, will be made for the successful applicant where this is required. If you would like to make an Access to Work application for a grant to pay for support tailored to your individual needs, such as a support worker, adaptations to the equipment you use, special equipment, taxi fares to and from work if public transport is not accessible to you, we will support you in this process. 

We also want applicants to have every opportunity to shine and show us their talents during the application process –so we want you to let us know if there are any adjustments we can make to ensure the application and recruitment processes are fully accessible to you. 

We are asking for CVs and covering letters so you can tell us how your skills and experience can support and add value to Resuscitation Council UK. During the shortlisting process, those shortlisting candidates for each role will not have access to your name, age or date of birth. Also, we will welcome accept applications using an alternative process (such as video or audio applications). 

Attracting a diverse group of candidates is a priority for us so we are also asking applicants to complete a diversity monitoring form. We will not use the information provided during the recruitment process itself, but the information we receive will help us to understand whether we are attracting a diverse group of candidates to our vacancies. It’s really important to us that we do!  

As an organisation we are firmly committed to inclusion and diversity, we have been working hard to make sure that we reach a wide potential candidate pool, are as flexible as possible and recognise the strengths every individual can potentially bring through this recruitment process.
