About Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF)

Meningitis Research Foundation is a leading UK and international charity working to defeat meningitis wherever it exists.
 
Meningitis and sepsis are together the second biggest infectious killer of children under the age of 5 globally. It strikes quickly and can affect anyone of any age. We are driven by the call of people who have experienced the devastating effects in their lives. Their demand is simple and powerful - to ensure “no other family has to go through what we have”.
 
Our vision is of a world free from meningitis and septicaemia. A world where effective vaccinations can protect everyone.  A world where people who do get the diseases get the most effective diagnosis and treatments possible. A world where people affected and their families have the best support and information.
 
To achieve this we bring together people and expertise, linking patient experience, research, policy and practice. We do this by supporting research into effective vaccines, diagnostics and treatments. We share results of the research with the public, health care professionals and research networks to raise awareness of what they can do to increase personal, family and community protection, optimise treatments and strengthen health systems.

We provide direct support to people and families affected. We believe that working in partnership the knowledge, experience, skills and finance available from the private sector are essential to achieving long term and sustainable impacts. We fundraise, inform and educate.
 
Over nearly 30 years we have played an instrumental role in helping to reduce death and disability from meningitis and septicaemia wherever it exists. To achieve this our incredible supporters have enabled us to fund research in the UK, Europe, North and South America, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Australasia.
 
With a drive to continue ongoing work in the UK and Ireland whilst growing our international presence significantly, we are about to embark on a new phase of development for the charity. We believe there has never been a more exciting time to join our 40 strong team at offices in Bristol, Edinburgh, Belfast and Dublin.
 
We value imagination, effectiveness and productivity in our work and provide an encouraging environment for enthusiastic, dedicated professionals to grow. We reward with good working conditions, competitive salaries and terms and conditions, respect and equal opportunities.

MRF is committed to safeguarding, any advertised role will require references and confirmation of your identity will be undertaken. Specific roles will state if there is a requirement for further checks.
