About this role

We’re looking for an exceptional Head of Communications to join our reshaped Marketing & Communications team who will help increase our ability to punch above our weight in our communications, driving influence, impact and, ultimately, income.

This role requires experience in running a busy press office, driving successful internal communications and social media as both a tool for reaching people and a must-have in engaging them and helping them get the most value from what we have to offer. It will also manage our conferences and events function, ensuring we’re able to connect with our diverse community offline as well as on.

You’ll reflect our values in all that you do, including collaborating with teams across the organisation, being professional, respectful, focused and driven in all that you do. And, of course, you’ll be passionate about playing a role in our fight for a life unlimited for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis.
