Call for EONS Chief Operating Officer

The European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) is looking for a new Chief Operating Officer (COO). EONS asbl is a pan-European Brussels-based not-for-profit membership organisation with a current membership of almost 28,000 cancer nurses from all over Europe, the largest group of healthcare workers in the oncology workforce. EONS is also a founder and key contributor to the Cancer Nursing Fund, a charitable foundation set up under the auspices of the King Baudouin Foundation in Brussels. The COO will support European cancer nurses and the cancer nursing community in fulfilling their roles in cancer care and advancing cancer nursing across Europe through EONS’ 4 Pillars: Communication, Advocacy, Research, and Education.

The COO oversees the implementation of EONS’ strategic priorities and ensures the continued relevance to the membership of existing activities. The COO leads the Brussels-based asbl, with a staff of 6, and is responsible to an internationally assembled Board and reports directly to the President of EONS.

We are looking for a person who has a success-focused mind-set, can manage conflicting demands effectively, has a strong sense of integrity, a positive attitude, is mission-driven and self-directed, but also has people-centred leadership qualities. We expect the COO to have previous membership organisation experience, working with nurses in health care organisations and/or societies and would preferably come from a (cancer) nursing background.
