Why join RCUK?
At Resuscitation Council UK, we pride ourselves on our inclusive, friendly staff team and Trustees, who use their compassion and expertise to support each other. Teamwork and partnership working is at the centre of our mission to save lives.
Sudden death from a cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of death in the UK and it can strike anyone, at any time, anywhere. To combat this, we’re educating healthcare professionals and the public in all aspects of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). We also want people to have conversations and be able to express their preferences for emergency situations which may include not wanting to receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
We're passionate about the work we do, and proud of the experts who provide the clinical guidance and expertise that supports RCUK's work. Many of these experts are influential not only in Europe as Members or Chairs of committees within the European Resuscitation Council (ERC), but also within the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) community.
Our Trustees are comprised of clinical experts and laypersons, all working together and entrusted to guide RCUK towards achieving our Vision to 2030.
We are especially keen to hear from you if you have specific expertise in Business Development/Commercial Strategy to help drive our income diversification and new products to save lives.
When you apply to work with us, we aim to provide appropriate support every step of the way. Here are some of the ways we can support applicants and Trustees:
- Supporting travel requirements: Some travel to the office or other locations will be required as part of the role and reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.
- Alternative application processes: 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. However, if an alternative method of applying – such as sending us a video or audio clip about yourself – works better for you, we welcome your application. We want our applicants to shine, so we’re flexible to your needs.
- Equity for all applicants: when we receive applications, those who shortlist candidates for each role will not have access to your name, age or date of birth. In addition, we ask you to submit a diversity monitoring form. We won’t use the information in the diversity monitoring forms during the recruitment process itself, but the information we receive will help us to understand whether our job advertisements are successfully attracting a diverse range of applicants.
