About the role

We are looking for a dynamic individual to join our Research and Access Team at our friendly London office, as Research Coordination Manager.

This role drives and coordinates work programmes pursuing our strategic aim for greater scientific understanding, leading to new ways to treat, prevent and stop MS. 

The role will suit an internationally-minded, collaborative person with a background in scientific research. They need to be happy to take the lead and get things done to make a difference in the lives of people affected by MS.

The role requires the skill and authority to bring together high level research staff from our member organisations and the wider scientific community to facilitate their contributions to collaborative projects.

You will manage and develop our international research grants, fellowships and alumni programme. This programme encourage researchers, particularly from emerging countries, to enter or stay in the field of MS; with these people often then supporting the development of MS services and research in their home country.

You will also use your expertise to contribute to our other programmes which aim to support confident and informed decision making, access to effective treatment and healthcare and positive changes in attitudes, policies and practices.

Our office is small and friendly. We encourage all our staff to take considerable responsibility for their areas of work and to contribute to our team effort. We are flexible in finding working arrangements that suit you and the organisation.
