We provide support, fund vital research, and campaign for better prevention, treatment and care.

An opportunity has arisen to join our high performing media team. Reporting to the Senior Media Officer, your role will be to deliver creative communications to enable the charity to deliver its organisational strategy in a cost effective and efficient way.

You will deliver an integrated social media and media relations service which generates both reactive and proactive opportunities and raises the profile of Asthma UK and the British Lung Foundation.
