Job description

Imagine not being able to move, sleep, or smile. Feeling anxious or depressed and struggling to think or remember. Your body not feeling like your own. This is what Parkinson's can feel like.

Every hour, two people in the UK are told they have Parkinson's - a brain condition that turns lives upside down, leaving a future full of uncertainty.

Parkinson’s UK is a people-powered movement. Together we will find a cure, and improve life for everybody affected by Parkinson’s. Join us!

About the role
To be working at Parkinson’s UK at this time could well be a career high and a life event for all of us.

What you’ll do:
In this role, you will:

  • Work effectively as a team to provide a welcoming, efficient, proactive and professional service to supporters and potential supporters of Parkinson’s UK
  • Engage with supporters to spot opportunities for Parkinson’s Uk to further build and develop relationships

What you’ll bring:
The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate:

  • Commitment and experience of effective customer service/supporter care
  • Demonstrable experience of working with a relational database, and accurate data entry
  • Experience of handling front line fundraising enquiries along with the ability to forge excellent relationships with prospective donors, colleagues, Parkinson’s UK local groups, members and volunteers

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