  • Do you have great ideas and want the opportunity to put them into practice for providing advice and support to people with asthma?

What we do at Asthma UK really matters. The better, deeper and longer relationship we have with people with asthma and their long-term condition, the more lives we save. It’s that simple. Through this role, you’ll have a unique opportunity to make a real difference on a massive scale for the one in five households affected by asthma.

Our board and senior team are externally recognised for their commitment to digital innovation in achieving our mission.

What the role involves:

  • To work as a member of the services team providing individualised information, advice and support to people affected by asthma and healthcare professionals who contact Asthma UK’s services.
  • To respond to incoming calls as part of our ‘on demand’ helpline service, make call-backs to people who leave voicemail messages, and input relevant caller information on the service database.
