Job description

Salary – up to £130,000

Location - Flexible location. Regular presence in Northampton (approximately two days a week) and London will be required, as well as travel nationally across the three countries we serve and some international travel.

MND Association is a national membership organisation with a local feel – our 90 branches and groups are run by incredibly dedicated and experienced volunteers who give their time and dedication in supporting their local MND community. We are entering a very exciting and potentially life changing time for people with MND: with £50m secured towards research, we are on the cusp of being able to develop effective treatments for some if not all, of our community.

We are looking for an experienced, influential senior leader who will ensure we deliver on our Five Promises to best support people with MND and their families. Supported by a highly dedicated, experienced and professional senior leadership team you will play a crucial part in ensuring we continue to deliver exceptional services to our MND community as we drive the research agenda towards the development of effective treatments and new care models.

Collaborative, with high emotional intelligence, you will be at ease engaging with and maintaining strong relationships with a very wide range of key stakeholders including government, donors, the media, industry, and most importantly to our community. Although it’s not essential that you come from a health background, you will need to be able to demonstrate you understand the complex, often highly challenging and emotive environment we operate in, and be able to understand and engage credibly with stakeholders in the medical and pharmaceutical worlds as well as the research community.
