The MND Association has been through some exciting changes - embracing agile working, introducing new technology and a recent move to a new, flexible office space.
These changes, together with a high level of trust and performance driven culture, will give staff the freedom and flexibility to work in the best way for them, the Association and, most importantly, people with MND.
The MND Association was founded in 1979. Our mission is to improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers. We also fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure for MND. The Association also campaigns and raises awareness so the needs of people with MND, and everyone who cares for them, are recognised and addressed by wider society.
Please submit your application as soon as possible; due to the high volumes of applications we receive, and we reserve the right to close any adverts before the closing date once we have received sufficient applications.
Our selection process will be multi-stage; this may include video call screening, psychometric assessments and competency based interview/s.
At the MND Association we are committed to equalities and value diversity. We are working hard to remove perceived and actual barriers to participation by people with and affected by MND, current and future staff and volunteers and stakeholders.
