The Cystic Fibrosis Trust has a fundamental story to tell: a story of a devastating genetic condition and the fight to lift the limits that people with cystic fibrosis (CF) currently face. We are 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.

We are seeking an Interim Director of Finance and Resources, to join us in meeting this challenge by working to ensure the Trust’s long-term financial wellbeing and to optimise resources to help deliver maximum impact for people with cystic fibrosis.

You will play a vital role in developing the organisation’s long-term strategies, working closely with the Board of Trustees.

With oversight of a £15m budget, we are looking for a strong, corporate business leader operating at a senior level to help take the Cystic Fibrosis Trust forward on our exciting journey towards a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis. You will lead, direct, develop and be responsible for the Finance, IT, Facilities, HR/Organisation Development, Project Management and company secretarial functions, as well as working collaboratively with the Board of Trustees and fellow Senior Leadership Team members.
