About us

We make sure people living with MS are at the centre of everything we do. And it’s this commitment that unites us across the UK.

Our work is based on the hopes and aspirations of our MS community. Together we campaign at all levels, fund ground-breaking research and provide award winning support and information.

Our people are our greatest asset and the key to our success. We offer a vibrant, progressive environment where you will make a difference.

About you

In this role, you'll sit within our new Community Networks Team.

You'll be leading the Engagement and Communication Team, making sure we have a programme of engagement and communication across our volunteer network.

Using all appropriate channels, you'll be developing a two-way dialogue, ensuring our volunteer voice is heard, and that our volunteers understand our work, their roles, and have the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.

You'll make sure our communication with volunteers is coordinated, and that the volume, content and tone of communication is appropriate to volunteer and organisational needs.

You'll have experience of:

  • working alongside end-users in the coproduction of services or activities, and a commitment to the principles of coproduction
  • developing and implementing business plans across a team
  • writing and editing copy to inform and inspire within a communication or customer relations environment
  • delivering well designed training programmes that motivate and develop others

We offer 35 days annual leave (including bank holidays), travel loan and various other benefits such as supported developmental opportunities.

We're in the middle of an exciting, transformational period as we embark on our 5 year strategy. As part of this we'll be moving from our current National Centre in Cricklewood, North West london to a different location in London. We're currently defining where and what type of accommodation this will be, and we really want our staff to be involved in that decision.
