At the MS Society we put people living with MS at the centre of everything we do, and it’s this commitment that unites us across the UK. Our vision is a world free from the effects of MS.
Our ultimate goal is to find a cure. But until then, we will do all that we can to enable people with MS to live life, knowing that they do not have to face MS alone.
It’s an exciting time to join us. We are one year into a new strategy, which is rooted in what people with MS have told us is important to them. This gives us a clear and determined focus. We have big aspirations and we need brilliant new people to help us achieve our ambitious goals.
We’re looking for a talented PR Manager to lead a small, motivated team to plan and execute a creative and effective public relations programme for the MS Society.
We're here for people with MS through the highs, lows and everything in between. We’re fighting to improve treatment and care to help people take control of their lives. And we’re driving research into more – and better – treatments for everyone. In order to help us achieve our aims, we need to generate a sustained increase in awareness of MS and wider recognition of the vital work we do.
That’s where you come in. Your proactivity, tenacity and drive will help us achieve award-winning media coverage that delivers our key messages to target audiences in a way that really sticks. You’ll work with colleagues across the charity to ensure we integrate our external communications and maximise the impact of our research, fundraising and campaigns across owned, earned and bought channels – both digital and print.
You’ll have substantial experience of running a 24-7 press office, and balancing the challenges of being nimble and responsive to the news agenda, while ensuring proactive plans remain on course. You’ll have lots of journalist contacts and a keen understanding of how to use the media to support campaigning.
And of course, you’ll be armed with excellent writing skills and a positive, can-do attitude.
We offer 27 days annual leave (excluding bank holidays) a 35-hour working week, travel loan and various other benefits such as supported developmental opportunities.
