The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is fighting for a life unlimited for everyone affected by the condition. Our mission is to create a world where everyone living with cystic fibrosis will be able to look forward to a long, healthy life.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust has a fundamental story to tell, a story of a devastating genetic condition and the fight to lift the limits people with cystic fibrosis (CF) currently face. It’s the story of a mission to create a new future where everyone with cystic fibrosis can live a life unlimited by their condition.

The charity is at an exciting time as we prepare to take our fight further and wider than ever before. We’re campaigning to put cystic fibrosis on the government agenda and to raise awareness of CF around the country on a local and national level.

This full time role will deliver high levels of stewardship to a variety of fundraising volunteers, supporters and community events. This exciting role will identify, develop and support fundraising opportunities to maximise engagement and fundraising activity and to significantly raise regional profile. Working collaboratively with a range of teams, you will contribute to the growth of core income and supporter/donor involvement.

You will join a team of relational fundraisers who are committed to delivering the very best. Working independently as well as being a key member of a high performing fundraising team, you will have proven experience of successful community fundraising and volunteer management. Using your insight, creativity and innovation you will develop and deliver a programme of successful and sustainable fundraising activity/campaigns and relationships within this region. An effective communicator you will have the ability to influence and encourage a diverse range of internal and external stakeholders.

This role will be home based but travel to our Head Office based in Central London and throughout the region the UK to support events, meetings and attend training workshops will be required.
