Findacure is recruiting a Projects Administrator to help us deliver our expanding programme of events and projects.

We’re looking for someone who is organised, self-motivated and wants to deliver a first-class experience to the rare disease community at our events. This is a role that is suitable for entry level or for an individual with 1-2 years’ experience in events planning or administration.

We are excited to have a new member of our small, hardworking team (normally) based just a few minutes’ walk from Cambridge train station. This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing and ambitious charity, and get a real taste of the charity sector.
