Opportunities


Executive Director of Services & Support , MS Society, London (flexibility to work remotely when not required in the office) , £100,186 per annum

Across the UK, over 130,000 of us have multiple sclerosis (MS); and more than 6m people have a close personal connection with the condition. It's unpredictable and different for everyone. It's often painful and exhausting, and can cause problems with how we walk, move, see, think and feel. It can make it hard to work and do the things we enjoy. But it doesn't have to be this way.

The MS Society is a community of scientists, campaigners, volunteers, fundraisers and staff who are dedicated to transforming the lives of people living with and affected by MS. We understand what life's like with MS, and we support each other through the highs, lows and everything in between. And we're driving research into more - and better - treatments for everyone. Together, we are strong enough to stop MS.  

As our new Executive Director of Services and Support, you will play a pivotal role in an organisation that is on a journey of transformation – aiming to maximise our impact by reaching, engaging and building enduring relationships with many more people in the MS community across the UK. As a key member of our Executive Group, you will spearhead our plans to deliver an integrated portfolio of information, services and support at national, regional and local level - designed in partnership with members of the MS community and responding to their needs.
