Louis Welcomme at Colleague Software said,

“Cystic Fibrosis has deeply affected one of our colleagues and for a while now we've been talking to about hosting an event to help raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. After much thought we came up with the idea of working with some of the industry’s specialists to host a series of online masterclasses so we could offer something genuinely useful to the industry we work in. The Recruiters Masterclass was born.”

About Cystic Fibrosis:

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited disease caused by a faulty gene. This gene controls the movement of salt and water in and out of your cells, so the lungs and digestive system become clogged with mucus, making it hard to breathe and digest food.

More than 2.5 million people in the UK carry the faulty gene, around one in 25 of the population.

There is currently no cure for cystic fibrosis but many treatments are available to manage it, including physiotherapy, exercise, medication and nutrition.

Each week five babies are born with cystic fibrosis, and two people die.

More than half of the cystic fibrosis population in the UK will live past 41, and improved care and treatments mean that a baby born today is expected to live even longer.
