Tiny Tickers helps give babies with congenital heart disease a better start in life – by improving detection rates, training medical staff, raising awareness, providing information and support to families, and supporting academic research.
We’re a small national charity with big ambitions. We have a proud track record and are continually growing our impact.
We’re recruiting an outstanding Project Support Officer to lead and manage the planning and delivery of a range of charitable projects right across the organisation – it’s a varied role that will see you working on everything from our training services; to our awareness campaigns; to our family support projects.
This is a fantastic opportunity for an enthusiastic, motivated and skilled individual to take on an exciting and flexible role in our small team – one that will make a real difference to babies with serious heart conditions and their families.
This is an additional position as we increase our small staff team (currently six), so we have the resources needed to do even more to help babies with congenital heart disease, their families, and the health professionals who look after them.

- Building and maintaining relationships with relevant external individuals and organisations.
Our ideal candidate is someone with bags of enthusiasm, a strong work ethic and a friendly and trustworthy attitude. Someone who can slot into our small staff team and show a commitment to our cause, and empathy with our beneficiaries. These are the most important attributes.
