Fixed Term Contract – 3 Years

New medication has brought about a dramatic improvement in health for some people with cystic fibrosis. This is exciting but brings new challenges – some people have told us it can be hard to explain past gaps in education and employment for example. For many people with CF, there is an ongoing need to balance work and CF health; this can also apply to parents of children with CF as they try to balance their caring responsibilities with work. 

We are now seeking a talented, dedicated and experienced Programme Manager to:

  • Ensure Work Forwards successfully tackles the barriers and challenges people with CF may face in securing or retaining employment.
  • To shape and deliver the programme, ensuring support is delivered via a mix of online 1-2-1 and group coaching sessions and outreach activities, creating and sharing the stories of people with CF in a range of jobs.
  • Ensure employers understand their responsibilities and know how they can best support employees with CF.
  • Develop and implement effective monitoring and evaluation processes, ensuring the impact of the programme can be fully understood and communicated.

You will bring a pro-active, innovative, empowering and empathetic approach, along with experience of delivering an employment programme (including delivery of Information, Advice & Guidance) and developing services/resources to meet the needs of a specific group. In addition, the role includes line management responsibility for an Employment Advisor who will provide support with delivery of the programme and services. You will be part of a friendly, dedicated team, with our Helpline acting as the key gateway to all our support services.

*This role will require some flexibility with the hours mainly to be worked in line with helpline opening hours, with occasional evening/weekend work. As the role has the possibility to be entirely home-based, this will require an appropriate working environment, suitable for handling confidential, sensitive phone calls and a suitable internet connection for delivering online sessions, will be essential, and the role will be subject to a DBS check.

Benefits include 30 days annual leave, flexible working and opportunities for learning and development.

Please note: you will need to have the right to work in the UK before starting work for us and we will check this.

Closing date for completed applications is 5pm Wednesday 3 August 2022.

Interviews expected on Wednesday 10 & Thursday 11 August 2022.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust welcomes applications from candidates from all backgrounds and particularly from people with cystic fibrosis, disabled people, and Black, Asian and minority ethnic and LGBTQI+ candidates.
