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

We’re looking for someone with a proven ability to plan and support multiple projects. You'll be committed to collaborative working and will have great MS Office skills, experience of planning and coordinating meetings with multiple project partners, and an inquiring mind. You'll have excellent communication skills and will be able to effectively collate and disseminate varied information.

In this busy role you'll support key stakeholders in the planning and delivery of the Stop MS Appeal programme. This is a cross-organisational fundraising appeal aiming to raise £100m for research that will revolutionise the treatment and management of MS. You'll also support the Philanthropy and Partnerships department with specific activities. These include developing stewardship programme content and completing sector trend analysis to identify new fundraising opportunities.

This is a great opportunity to apply and develop your experience in project administration and management in a busy and successful fundraising department. You'll be working with some exceptional supporters committed to stopping MS.
