Summary

We are looking to recruit a Group Coordinator for our MS Societygroup. In this role you'll lead your local group to work as effectively as possible.

Detailed description

Across the UK, our 270 local groups play a vital part in supporting people affected by MS. They provide sense of belonging, unity and friendship. And they deliver services and support for their local MS community.


We are looking to recruit a Group Coordinator for our Great Yarmouth and Waveney group. As our local Group Coordinator you’ll take the lead in making sure your local group works as effectively as possible. You’ll recruit, induct and support other group volunteers to make sure your group’s activities meet the needs of your local MS community.


In this role you’ll be able to develop your leadership, management, communication, organisation and motivation skills.


Time Commitment

We estimate this role will need around 5 hours a week. Our roles are flexible and aim to fit around you. Time commitments for this role may vary depending on your activities. This is an ongoing role.

This is a great opportunity to gain experience within a large charity and develop your existing skills and learn new ones. We need you to get involved and help make positive changes to the lives of people affected by MS.


About you

You’ll have an interest in the MS Society and the work that we do, as well as the enthusiasm to represent both us and our values locally. You will understand the needs of people affected by MS in your area and be sympathetic to the needs and motivations of volunteers. You’ll be confident using Microsoft Office, the internet and email. You’ll be able to apply disability, equality and inclusion practices and understand and apply our risk management system. Ideally you’ll understand the local area and organisations that provide local services.


You will be reliable and easy to contact and you need to live in or near the Great Yarmouth and Waveney area to carry out this role.

About MS Society (Great Yarmouth and Waveney))

We play a leading role in MS research and fight for better treatment and care for our community. We know our resources are precious. So we use them where we can make the most impact for everyone living with MS. Our work last year saw us get even closer to our vision for a world free from the effects of MS. We reached thousands of people with help and support through our MS Helpline and local groups. We successfully campaigned on the issues that matter most to our community. And we continued to invest in groundbreaking research to stop MS in its tracks.
