The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity making a daily difference to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis, and those who care for them. We invest in cutting-edge research, drive up standards of clinical care, offer support for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis, and campaign hard on the issue that matter.

Cystic fibrosis is chronically misunderstood, kills thousands worldwide and is carried unknowingly in the genes of millions. We’re here to beat it.

Putting people with cystic fibrosis at the centre of everything we do is key to helping us beat the condition for good, and doing this is a challenge that you’ll relish.

The Trust has ambitious plans to expand its research programmes over the next five years. As such, the Trust needs to increase the capacity for managing and administering calls for research applications, their peer review and the post-award scrutiny of impact reports and financial claims. We are therefore looking for an effective administrator to work alongside our Research and Grants Manager to process and administer the Trust’s various research grant programmes and to assist in the management of all financial claims made to the Trust from grant holders ensuring appropriate payment and accurate record keeping.

With excellent communications skills and the ability to liaise at all levels you will have a flexible outlook and enjoy being a part of a busy team. With an interest in scientific and medical affairs, you will be working in an environment where you will be empowered to take initiative and prioritise your work when necessary.
