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 fund vital research so that new treatments and cures can help to save lives.

We have an exciting opportunity for a group support officer to join the British Lung Foundation on a part-time basis (20 hours per week) for a minimum of 6 months to support our national network of self-help support groups. We are seeking a dynamic and self-motivated individual with experience of developing and supporting volunteers in a group setting for this role based at our Liverpool office.

The post-holder will help to support our existing group support network, develop volunteer involvement and assist in creating an e-learning volunteer pathway. Working with colleagues, support group volunteers and partners, the Officer will be responsible for communicating with groups, coordinating group events, keeping accurate data and records and creating a volunteer programme to enhance involvement and retention.

We are looking for someone with experience of working with volunteers in a versatile and creative way.  You will take the lead in developing our training offer to volunteers and work in partnership with colleagues to support our digital hub. It is vital that the post-holder possess excellent communication, customer-service, IT and organisational skills.

Not only are we the only UK charity looking after the nation’s lungs but also a fantastic employer. We have recently been nationally recognised as a fantastic place to work after earning a place at no.45 in The Sunday Times Best 100 Not for Profit Organisations. This is a great achievement as only the organisations with the highest level of employee engagements qualify for the list. 

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 (pro-rata for part-time employees), 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.
