Our group is run by a friendly team of volunteers who fundraise and deliver a range of activities and services to support people with MS locally and we really need someone to help organise us! You will act as the first point of contact for our group, accessing the MS Society group email account and data and responding to emails and requests.
You will also play an important role in keeping the group’s data and details up to date to comply with data protection legislation. This is a great opportunity to gain experience within a large charity and develop your existing skills and learn new ones.

You'll received a welcome, induction and training relevant to the role, ongoing support from our friendly volunteer team and local staff member. We also encourage our volunteers to claim out of pocket expenses in line with our expenses policy.
We need you to get involved and help make positive changes to the lives of people affected by MS.
