About this job

We’re looking for an experienced, confident and articulate Events Officer to help support our successful Special Events programme.

We’re delivering some of the most exciting Special Events in the UK, and we’re seeking a talented and enthusiastic individual to join us as our Special Events Officer.  

Our programme of events has grown rapidly over the past few years and is focused on delivering quality and high profile fundraising and cultivation events for a philanthropic and corporate audience. The programme includes both small and large scale events, with a previous event raising £1 million net. We have worked at venues such as the Southbank Centre, BAFTA, Downing Street and St Paul’s Cathedral, to name a few.  

We work with Event Committees, celebrity supporters and a highly committed Appeal Board to deliver events, bringing together high-profile, engaged and well-connected individuals passionate about the cause and our ambitious plans for the future. 

We offer 35 days annual leave (pro rata for part time employees) including bank holidays, travel loan and various other benefits such as supported developmental opportunities.

The MS Society is in the midst of an exciting, transformational, period which builds on our great history and will drive us towards achieving our mission and vision as we embark on our Every MS Story strategy.
