About this job

Are you an experienced, confident and articulate events manager looking for a fantastic opportunity develop a successful Special Events programme?

The MS Society is delivering some of the most exciting Special Events in the UK and we are seeking a talented and enthusiastic individual to join us as Special Events Manager.

Our programme of events has grown rapidly over the past few years and is focused on delivering high quality and high profile fundraising and cultivation events, for a philanthropic and corporate audience. The programme includes both small and large scale events, with a previous event raising £1 million net. We have worked at venues such as the Southbank Centre and St Paul’s Cathedral.

We work with Event Committees, celebrity supporters and a highly committed Appeal Board to deliver events, which brings together high-profile, engaged and well-connected individuals passionate about the cause and our ambitious plans for the future.

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.

Part of this exciting transformation will include an office move from 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.
