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.

Your role will be to provide operational management of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust’s finances. You will take the lead on the preparation of annual budgets and quarterly forecasts and manage the year end accounts preparation and external audit process. Being a key point of contact with our Trustees regarding financial performance and strategy, with regular reporting at a senior level, you will be a voice in implementing financial best practice.
