Job description

The Trust’s vision is a world free of MSA and our mission is to find the cause and, ultimately, the cure for MSA. Until that day, we will do all we can to support people affected by MSA and to strive to ensure that they are not alone on their individual journeys. You could help us achieve this.


The Multiple System Atrophy Trust is seeking to appoint our sixth MSA Nurse Specialist/Adviser, who will cover London and South East England, as we continue to develop our UK and Ireland services.

Experience of facilitating formal and informal training for other health and care professionals is essential.

Independent travel within the prescribed area will be required to attend clinics and regional Support Groups, as will occasional travel elsewhere in the UK for clinical supervision, team meetings and other Trust activities. This is fully reimbursed.
