  • self and time-management and resilience to resolve conflicting priorities and deliver to deadlines
  • the ability to work as part of a team. 
  • experience of working in the third sector and knowledge of or affinity with the cystic fibrosis community will be an advantage.

We offer a flexible working approach and supportive team environment, and you will have the opportunity to gain valuable experience in a busy team for future personal growth and development in communications and media management.

In addition to flexible working our benefits include 30 days annual leave pro rata and opportunities for learning and development.
