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

You have excellent interpersonal skills, you're proactive and highly motivated and able to engage, inspire and guide our volunteers. You've got solid experience of working with teams of volunteers to help them plan, manage and deliver services. And, as this role covers a big geographical area you'll need to hold a full driving licence and have access to a car.

As our Local Networks Officer you'll help build the capacity of our local volunteer networks, so they have the skills and numbers to deliver activities and services to help people live well with their MS. You'll be their main point of contact and will support and guide them to reach more people affected by MS.

Your strong influencing and negotiation skills will help you build strong partnerships and lead people through a process of change.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a supportive and friendly team at an exciting time. The post will cover the North and Mid Wales.
