Imagine not being able to move, sleep, or smile. Feeling anxious or depressed and struggling to think or remember. Your body not feeling like your own.  This is what Parkinson’s can feel like.

Every hour, two people in the UK are told they have Parkinson’s – a brain condition that turns lives upside down, leaving a future full of uncertainty.

Parkinson’s UK is an ambitious and dynamic charity, passionate about improving the lives of everyone affected by Parkinson’s.  We’re over half way through our current strategy to bring forward the day that no-one fears Parkinson’s, and our pace and determination is stronger than ever.

We need an exceptional Head of Internal Communications and Engagement to lead our staff engagement and communication programmes and solutions.  It’s critical that everyone at Parkinson’s UK understands how they contribute, where they fit in, and how they can share their work with others.

In a geographically diverse organisation with nearly 500 employees, this definitely isn’t a straightforward challenge!

Using a broad range of techniques and tools, you’ll lead the promotion of the charity’s work internally, using your skills and experience to ensure that all of our staff feel engaged in, and inspired by, the charity’s strategy, plans, vision and values.  You’ll also be part of a wider team of colleagues who are focussing on leading and delivering some key organisational projects to improve collaboration.  All of this, and more, will give you an opportunity to bring your extensive skills, experience and fresh ideas.

You’ll be confident and competent in using a broad range of digital tools and solutions, both personally to deliver your own work as well as in rolling out internal communications solutions to all staff.  We need you to think creatively and bring a relevant and modern approach to staff engagement, introducing fresh ideas to continuously improve engagement and collaboration across the charity.

Think you’re up for the challenge?

If you’re an innovative and experienced senior Communications and Engagement professional, with a track record of demonstrating how you’ve engaged and inspired an organisation’s staff through effective strategic and operational internal comms approaches that offer modern and innovative techniques – and you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and lead a small team to make a big impact – then you we’d love you to apply!

Parkinson’s UK is committed to ensuring a positive working culture for all of our employees, as well as a good work-life balance.

 

Interviews will be held on 25 July 2018
