Pulmonary fibrosis is a devastating and incurable disease, which affects 70,00 people in the UK. We support people affected by pulmonary fibrosis and invest in research to find a cure.

We are a young, energetic and ambitious charity.

Do you have the skills and passion we need? If so we want to hear from you.

We currently have two vacancies and one volunteer position available:

Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all candidates irrespective of race, age, gender, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion or belief, or marital or civil partnership status.

Regional Support Coordinator (South) 

Are you looking for a new challenge? Are you passionate about enabling patients and carers to drive change? We are looking for an exceptional candidate to manage and grow a regional network of support for people living with pulmonary fibrosis.

There is no known cure for pulmonary fibrosis, and little support for families. We are passionate about changing that, by funding research to find a cure, campaigning for access to early diagnosis and treatments, and supporting quality of life through access to good peer support. There is so much more to do!

You might be a health professional, have personal experience of pulmonary fibrosis in the family, or have worked with support groups in a charity or health context. If you are positive, proactive, creative and organised, have the skill needed to build our network of groups, and excel at engaging with patients and carers digitally and in person, we’d love to hear from you!

The region covers the geographical area to the south of Peterborough, with a special focus on London and the South-East, a growing network in the South West and South coast and into South Wales. You will need to be well placed to travel throughout your region.

Location - Home working with regular travel within the region (and to the national office in Peterborough) once the pandemic restrictions are lifted.

Please email your CV with a Supporting Statement showing how you meet the person specification to recruitment@actionpf.org by 10am on 19 July 2021, marking your subject line ‘Regional Support Coordinator (South)’.

Office Volunteer

Why do we need you?

At APF we understand how important good administration is. You will be helping to ensure the smooth running of our work so that we make the best use of donations received, more PF patients and carers have good support, and we can fund more research into treatments and a cure. This role will involve working with the current Charity Administrators to assist them in offering administrative support to the whole team.

Your gift of time can be planned to suit you and the needs of the Charity. This role can be flexible and work around your existing commitments. You don’t need to give a lot of time to make a big difference.
