The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is fighting for a life unlimited for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis. Our mission is to create a world where being born with cystic fibrosis no longer carries a death sentence, when everyone living with the condition 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 death sentence people with cystic fibrosis are currently born under. 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 cystic fibrosis around the country on a local and national level.

We’re looking for someone to plan, manage and deliver our flagship conference alongside a programme of special events. Someone who has experience of managing and delivering large scale conferences and meetings, securing corporate sponsorship, meeting targets and delivering events that meet the needs of diverse audiences.  Staying calm under pressure, building and maintaining strong relationships internally and externally, as well as being an excellent communicator.

You will have a track record of putting on a range of events and conferences with a high success rate, always looking for that next venue and how through our conferences and events we can spread the word that we are fighting for a life unlimited.
