Group Support Officer x 2 - Part-time 21.5 hours/wk

One person in five in the UK is affected by lung disease. Millions more are at risk. The British Lung Foundation (BLF) is here for every one of them. We support people affected by lung disease, so that no one has to face it alone. We promote greater understanding of lung disease and campaign for change in the nation’s lung health. We fund vital research so that new treatments and cures can help to save lives.

We have an exciting opportunity for two Group Support Officer’s to join the British Lung Foundation on a part-time basis supporting our national network of Breathe Easy self-help groups. We are seeking dynamic and self-motivated individuals with a wide range of communication and customer-service skills and experience for these roles based at our Liverpool office.

The post-holders will be the main point of contact for volunteers who run Breathe Easy self-help groups in a designated region of England, providing them with support, information and encouragement in all aspects of their voluntary work. Possessing excellent communication, customer-service, IT and organisation skills, you will take a lead in ensuring that Breathe Easy group volunteers receive the highest levels of customer service and support.

Both roles are for 21.5 hours per week and there are two work patterns available, Mon-Fri (inclusive) or Wed-Fri (inclusive). Please state your preferred working pattern, if you have one, on your application form.

As well as a competitive salary you can enjoy a range of benefits including our cycle-to-work scheme, interest-free annual season Travelcard loan, 30 days annual leave (plus Bank Holidays), pension scheme and much more.

This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to an organisation committed to supporting everyone whose lives are changed by lung disease.
