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 an exceptional person to lead our Individual Giving and Legacies programme, responsible for raising over half of the Society’s income. Managing a team of three direct reports, and six in total, this role will be accountable for meeting agreed income, expenditure and activity targets.

As part of our leadership team, you’ll work with colleagues across the MS Society to deliver our new Income Generation Strategy and keep Individual Giving at the forefront of our priorities. Working closely with our Digital team you’ll ensure that Individual Giving at the MS Society evolves and that Legacy income is maximised.

You’ll currently be in a Head of role, or an experienced Manager and will understand the complexities of Individual Giving programmes and legacy marketing.

You’ll have a track record of achieving substantial income targets and managing complex budgets, success in leading a team to deliver a multi-million pound, multi-channel programme while growing income across new channels, and experience of working cross-organisationally to achieve goals.

Please note this is a maternity cover for up to 12 months.

We offer 35 days annual leave (pro rata for part time employees) including bank holidays, 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 Every MS Story strategy.
