At the MS Society, 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 this job

We’re looking for a Community and Events Assistant to join our friendly, creative and hard-working Community and Events Team. We work closely together to achieve an annual income of over £3.2 million.

We’re always ready to go the extra mile to support and inspire the thousands of people out there doing something amazing for people affected by MS. Our aim is to make it as easy as possible for people to achieve their goals, providing the tools, advice and support they need to reach their potential – and building lasting relationships that mean they continue to fundraise for us in future. It’s our job to make sure that our supporters have a fantastic experience of fundraising for us.

As our Community and Events Assistant, you’ll provide administrative and project support to the wider team, as well as coordinating a range of fundraising activities to achieve income targets.  In particular, you will support individuals who are taking part in their own events or organising their own DIY fundraising.  And there’ll be plenty of opportunities to attend events and see our work in action!

You’ll be organised, with great customer care and communication skills, and willing to go the extra mile.  You'll work closely with supporters, volunteers, local groups and the wider fundraising team. You’ll be able to demonstrate a good understanding of the basics of community and events fundraising experience and a collaborative approach to teamwork.

If you’re enthusiastic and motivated by helping others achieve something amazing in support of a cause that means the world to them, we’d love to hear from you.

We are currently advertising for two Community & Events Fundraising Assistants.

We offer 27 days annual leave (excluding bank holidays), a 35 hour working week, travel loan and various other benefits such as supported developmental opportunities.

The MS Society is in the midst of an exciting, transformational, period which builds on our great history and will drive us towards achieving our mission and vision as we embark on our new 5 year strategy.

Part of this exciting transformation will include an office move for our current National Centre in Cricklewood, NW London to a different location in London. We are currently defining where and what type of accommodation this will be and we really want our staff to be involved in that decision and therefore we don’t envisage a move before Sept 2020.

Closing date: 9am on Thursday 9th January 2020


We are committed to promoting equality and diversity.

No agencies please.
