Work for us

We have a huge job to do. We want all people affected by cardiomyopathy to live a full life.

To do this we need to grow and develop Cardiomyopathy UK and from time to time this means adding to our small staff team.

Whatever the role, we want people who:

  • are passionate about changing the lives of people affected by cardiomyopathy;
  • really understand the condition and the impact it has;
  • know more than we do already and are happy to get stuck in.

Thank you for your interest in Cardiomyopathy UK.
