The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is at a key turning point in our fight for a life unlimited for everyone affected by the condition. We need to make sure we’re using every channel we have available to connect to both the people we exist to help and the people who have the means to help us achieve our goals. That’s where you come in.

About the role

To make a lasting impact on those we are here for we need people with game-changing skills and an abundance of energy and commitment. This is your chance to be part of our communications team, who are aiming to change the way we reach, engage and activate people to help us in our fight against cystic fibrosis (CF).

You’ll have a nose for what makes a good story and use your friendly and approachable attitude to work with colleagues to find the latest news to share internally, on our website and beyond.

We’re looking for someone who’s not afraid to push the boundaries with old and new communication channels, embraces change and is happy to explore new ways of engaging our audiences; someone who understands the challenges of rare medical conditions, the charitable landscape and the shift in the media industry.
