About this job

We’re looking for a communications professional with an excellent grasp of biomedical science to oversee our ambitious research communications programme. You will lead the day to day operational work of the research communications team, line managing two members of staff.

This role involves leading on a broad and varied range of projects, often working collaboratively with other departments across the organisation. You’ll oversee the development of engaging research related content for digital and print, as well as managing an annual programme of research talks and events. You’ll also represent the Society at regional and national events and through print and broadcast media.

As a key member of the Research management team, you’ll contribute to the leadership, planning and policy formulation of the department as a whole.

You’ll be joining the research team at an exciting time as we prepare to launch a multi-million pound clinical trials platform. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a supportive and friendly team.

We offer 35 days annual leave (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 new 5 year strategy.

As part of this exciting transformation, we’ll be moving from our current National Centre based in Cricklewood, London to Finsbury Park, London later this year. We’re expecting to be moving into our new office from August 2021.
