About the Organisation

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. It happens every five minutes in the UK and changes lives instantly. Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt.

Everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. And it’s a team effort to get there.

The charity provides specialist support, funds critical research and campaigns to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.

The organisation is working to improve the diversity of the team. Because individuality leads to a richer experience for its people and better support for those affected by stroke.

People from all backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. And particularly applications from those with lived experience of stroke and those from under-represented communities.

Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Help rebuild them and join the team.

In 2019, the charity developed a bold new corporate strategy so that they can rebuild more lives after stroke and make a bigger difference to people’s lives. To help deliver the strategy and make a real difference, we are looking to recruit talented people to a number of new roles. If you would like to support stroke survivors to rebuild their lives, we want to hear from you!

You may also have experience in areas such as a Researcher, Research and Policy Officer, Research Officer, Policy Engagement Officer, Research Communications Officer, Campaigns Officer, Research Funding, Policy Coordinator, Network Officer, Research, Policy, Senior Researcher, Senior Policy Officer, Policy and Insight, Communications and Policy, Researcher, Research and Policy, Policy and Research, Policy Analyst, Policy and Research Officer, Public Affair, Public Affair Officer, Policy Researcher, Disability, Stroke, Charity, Campaign, Campaigns.
