About us 

We put people living with MS at the centre of everything we do, and it’s this commitment that unites us across the UK.

Our vision is a world free from the effects of MS. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure. But until then, we'll do all we can to help people with MS to live life, knowing they don't have to face MS alone. Our strategy is based on what people with MS have told us is important to them. It gives us a clear and determined focus.

We have big aspirations and we need brilliant new people to help us achieve our ambitious goals. Will you join our team to stop MS?

About you

In this role you'll have the opportunity to grow community and events fundraising in the North West, with the enthusiastic support of people affected by MS.

The Area Fundraising (England) team works within a lively and creative fundraising department.

You'll be given free rein to develop your skills and experience, while building relationships with grassroots supporters to maximise income. You'll also be part of the Stop MS Appeal, which is being launched to the public in Spring 2019.

You’re likely to be in a similar role for another charity, confident, enthusiastic and with great customer care and communication skills. You'll know how work closely with supporters, volunteers, local groups and the wider fundraising team. You’ll be able to demonstrate a good understanding of community and events fundraising and a collaborative approach to teamwork. Most importantly, you’ll be supporter-focused and willing to go the extra mile to support our amazing fundraisers and help them reach their fundraising goals.
