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 a Project Development Executive to join the British Lung Foundation on a part-time (22.5 hours per week), fixed term (24 month) contract to 30 June 2020.

We are seeking a dynamic and self-motivated individual with experience of coordinating projects which will transform the support on offer to people with long term respiratory illness across the North East region by developing a comprehensive network of Breathe Easy self-help groups. The role will initially be focused on Leeds and the surrounding area, before the focus is expanded across the region from January 2019.

The post holder will have excellent communication, event planning and co-ordination skills, as well as experience of working with volunteers and external partners.

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. 


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-rated 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.
