About smoke-free healthcare funds

Health Funds for Smoke Free (GvRV) is a collaboration between Hartstichting, the KWF and the Longfonds with the goal that no one will die or die from the consequences of smoking. With a motivated team of nine employees in the office and around 20 employees from the three funds, we work for a smoke-free Netherlands. Smoke-Free is also free from alternative forms of nicotine use, such as electronic cigarettes.

We work with civil society organisations, companies and governments. Smoking is still the biggest preventable cause of disease and death in the Netherlands, and the tobacco industry still manages every week to get hundreds of children in our country addicted to smoking. To bring a smoke-free generation closer faster, strong social initiatives and government measures are needed. This is why we encourage the whole of the Netherlands to contribute to a smoke-free generation through lobbying, communication and relationship management. For organizations, this includes, for example, making places smoke-free, but also stopping doing business with the tobacco industry.

What will you do:

  • In the Organizations and Environments team you will work on the development and implementation of projects through which we increase the number and quality of smoke-free environments and organizations in the Netherlands.
  • You inspire national parties and leading companies to take steps towards Smoke Free and maintain collaborative relationships with these parties to catalyze progress.
  • You proactively communicate with parties to investigate opportunities to make new environments smoke-free and make proposals for how to resolve any bottlenecks.
  • Indulge in the opportunities and possibilities to put Smoke Free on the agenda in organizations in the arts, culture and media sector.
  • You proactively advise, inform and support stakeholders in a generation without smoke. You speak to parties who have questions about making organizations and environments smoke-free.
