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

Are you a confident and proactive fundraiser with experience raising funds from both Trusts and Philanthropists in Scotland? Are you looking for a fantastic opportunity to use and build upon your fundraising skills whilst being part of a supportive and passionate team and community?

As the post-holder, you will focus on delivering excellent stewardship to our existing donors in Scotland, whilst also expanding our reach to engage new Trusts and Philanthropists in the region. Working with the Trusts and Philanthropy fundraising teams based in London, colleagues in Scotland, and autonomously you will be expected to secure donations from low, mid and high value donors. These funds will not only facilitate support and information services for people living with MS in Scotland, but will also advance our pioneering research programme.

We’re keen to appoint someone with excellent written and verbal communication skills, as well as exceptional relationship-management skills. We’re looking for a self-motivated individual with a proven track record of securing substantial donations who is keen to develop within a dynamic fundraising team.

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.
