Job description

People living with Parkinson's value the services and opportunities Parkinson’s UK provides, delivered by committed and skilled colleagues, volunteers and partner organisations. Following an investment of 1.5 million we have the opportunity to build on the quality and reach of our community services. 

We’re looking for someone with experience of both campaigning, including an understanding of the basic tools and techniques used in campaigning, and of working with volunteers and services users, including how best to support them to achieve their campaigning goals.

About the role 

You’ll lead and coordinate our local campaigning work across Wales. Your work will help the charity improve the lives of people in local communities affected by Parkinson’s. You’ll listen to the needs of our local communities and work with volunteers and colleagues in the wider Wales team to do focussed campaigning and advocacy work. 

Through co-production you’ll ensure that the voices of people with Parkinson’s, their families and carers are heard by decision makers.

What you’ll do:  

  • Support the development and delivery of campaigns activity for Wales and proactively identify opportunities for public-facing campaigns.

  • Recruit and manage a sustainable community of campaign volunteers.

  • Use our national campaign priorities to deliver related local campaign activity.

  • Organise and deliver training events for people with lived experience who wish to engage as well as campaign volunteers.

  • Create content for public facing elements of campaigns, including supporter actions, web pages, newsletter and social media.

What you’ll bring:

  • Ability to network and build supportive relationships with volunteers, MSs/MPs and health bodies. 

  • Ability to work independently, coproductively and as a part of a team. 

  • Experience in organising events. 

  • Experience of delivering training to a variety of audiences 

  • Excellent written and oral communication and client care skills, including a confident phone manner and an ability to produce inspiring content to motivate volunteers and staff. 

This is an exciting time for Parkinson’s UK and we would love you to join us!

Please apply by sending us your CV, together with a detailed supporting statement which will fully demonstrate how you meet all the criteria of the role, as stated in the "What you'll bring" section of the job description.

Interviews for this role will be held week commencing 13 May 2024

Anyone can get Parkinson’s. It’s vital that the people who work for Parkinson’s UK are representative of our diverse community. We actively encourage people from all sections of the community to apply, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, age, disability, sexual orientation, or religion.
