About this job

The role of Volunteer Engagement and Communication Manager sits within our new Community Networks team.

This exciting role will lead the Engagement and Communication team, ensuring that we have a programme of engagement and communication across our volunteer network, using all appropriate channels and developing a two-way dialogue, ensuring volunteer voice is heard, and that our volunteers understand our work, their roles, and have the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.

The post-holder will ensure that our communication with volunteers is coordinated, and that the volume, content and tone of communication is appropriate to volunteer and organisational needs.

The post holder will have experience of:

  • working alongside end-users in the coproduction of services or activities, and a commitment to the principles of coproduction

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.
