The mapping of key stakeholders shall focus on organisations and persons with influence in the area of urban planning and children’s health, either directly because the organisation’s area of activity is of relevance, or via a formal or informal influence on policy making, nationally and/or internationally.
The aim is to establish a relevant and up-to-date list of invitees, with verified contact details.
In your work, you will receive support from, and report to Uppsala Health Summit’s project management and the experts in the program committee, i.e. researchers from different scientific areas at i.a. Uppsala University and the Swedish University of Agriculture, in addition to external, mainly international contacts.
This is a part-time job that can to a large extent be carried out from home at hours that suit your schedule, but you must of course be able to connect with people when they are available. Considering that we are working with contacts in all parts of the world, you may sometimes need to work at odd hours.
The successful candidate will have a basic prior interest in health policy, and preferably already have some insights in the focus area of this summit, urban planning and children’s health issues.
To be suitable for this job, you should:
- be able to use English as working language
- be diligent and meticulous
- feel comfortable initiating contact with persons you have never met
