About this job

Reporting to both the Executive Director of External Affairs and the Director of Research, you will proactively manage all aspects of EA support to them and across the Research and External Affairs Directorates. This is an exciting new role, involving a significant amount of contact with senior internal and external contacts, including Directors, Trustees and senior stakeholders. The post-holder will also undertake discrete projects relating to the management of the Directorate.

As the Executive Assistant to the Director of External Affairs and the Director of Research you’ll be out-going, confident and have fantastic verbal and written communication skills. Our client is looking for someone who can work on their own initiative, be proactive and manage a heavy workload. You will have experience of working as an Executive Assistant or senior PA to a senior director in a charity or not for profit organisation, as well as taking and writing minutes and managing small projects, e.g. staff inductions.

Our client put people affected by MS at the centre of everything they do, and it’s this commitment that unites them across the UK. Their vision is a world free from the effects of MS. Their ultimate goal is to find a cure, but until then, they will do all that they can to enable people with MS to live life, knowing that they do not have to face MS alone.

The charity has recently launched their new five year organisational strategy, making it an exciting time to join them. The strategy is based on what people affected by MS have told our client is important to them, and it gives the charity a clear and determined focus. They have big aspirations and they need to attract brilliant new people to help them achieve their ambitious goals.

You will be joining the Society at an exciting stage of its development and this is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a supportive and friendly team.

They offer 27 days annual leave (excluding bank holidays), a 35 hour working week, travel loan and various other benefits such as supported developmental opportunities.
