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 the 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. We’re moving fast now to deliver better treatments and maybe a cure for Parkinson’s within years, not decades, and you would be part of the team dedicated to providing support and advice to thousands
of individuals, groups, local businesses and event participants across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to create the funding to make this possible. What could be a better career reward
than that?

What you’ll do

  • develop and deliver ambitious local fundraising plans and budgets
  • support, motivate and manage a portfolio of individual supporters to fundraise for Parkinson’s UK
  • lead on the development and delivery of a portfolio of local fundraising events
  • develop streams of local fundraising in allocated area, including community support, local corporate activity and some major donor work

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

  • experience of general fundraising principles in at least two of the following disciplines: events, community, corporate, major donor.
  • setting and managing budgets to achieve agreed targets and working effectively to plan and organise work to meet deadlines
  • Effective communication and listening skills and the ability to work in a modern workplace.

If you think you could help us, we would love to hear from you.
