With a vision of a world free from meningitis and septicaemia, we are in the forefront of the fight against deadly meningitis and acute infectious disease at national and international levels. We are respected by professionals and public alike for our technical expertise and passion.

We fund research, produce disease information for public and professionals, and provide 1:1 support for people affected by the disease. We work to improve healthcare provision directly, and through advocating change to policy makers at national levels.

While we go through an exciting period of change, which includes relocating our head office to central Bristol, we are looking for a proven individual who is interested to explore how to make the most of this, whilst maintaining and developing a sustained portfolio of trusts income.

We’re looking for someone who:

  • will be focussed and productive, able and willing to generate professional, compelling asks to trusts and foundations for all our activities.
  • will have previous experience that can be applied to understanding and improving our approach to this area of work.
  • is dynamic and able to work creatively and constructively with a wide range of colleagues throughout the organisation.
We’re interested to hear how you could contribute.
