About the role
We are seeking to appoint a full time Organisational Development and Movement Building Manager to stimulate and support the development of MS groups, organisations, the global MSIF movement and the wider global MS community. The role involves all aspects of inclusive project design and management; organising and creating content for training events, workshops and webinars; grant giving and convening and facilitating various stakeholder work groups and consultations.
We are looking for an experienced project manager who enjoys working on a diverse range of cross-cutting national, regional and global projects. In this role you will interact, develop and maintain relationships with people from a broad range of backgrounds and cultures, spotting opportunities for connection and collaboration. You will mentor and coach staff and volunteers in national/local community-based organisations, or connect them with others who are best placed to support them to achieve their goals.
Working with two other team members, and under the leadership of the Head of Organisational Development and Movement Building, this role will suit an individual who has experience of facilitating work that strengthens community-based organisations and/or movements in several world regions. The ability to communicate in multiple languages is essential.
This is an exciting time to join MSIF as we are currently developing our 2023-7 strategy, ready for launch next year. Within this context we are building flexibility into our organisational development and movement building work to be able to more robustly respond to the needs of MS organisations and the MS communities they support, wherever they might be in the world. You will play a key role in identifying and responding to these needs and opportunities, integrating our work with MSIF’s research, access, information and advocacy teams in order to make progress towards our shared goals and aims.
