World Heart Federation


The Campaign Manager of the World Heart Federation (WHF) has the primary responsibility for creating and managing multifaceted, multi-partnership campaigns which help the global cardiovascular community to achieve its mission.

The Manager reports to the Director of Strategy and Communications and collaborates closely with the Advocacy, Partnership and Membership teams. We are looking for an experienced project manager and marketing expert who inspires others and delivers on time.

The Campaign Manager will execute end-to-end (plan, test, execute, measure, and refine) campaigns and promote them. This role requires a highly organised, collaborative, and creative mind able to manage day-to-day deliverables without losing sight of the wider context.


The World Heart Federation (WHF) is an umbrella organisation representing the global cardiovascular community, uniting over 200 patient, medical, and scientific groups. Our advocacy and convening roles help us empower our members to prevent and control cardiovascular disease. We work in line with SDG 3.4 to reduce by 1/3 the deaths from NCDs by 2030. WHF influences policies and shares knowledge to promote cardiovascular health for everyone. For more information, visit
