Job Title: Senior Policy and Campaigns Adviser (health)
Working For: Parkinson's UK
Salary: £33,263 per annum
35 hours per week
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 and finding better treatments and a cure. Together we can bring forward the day when no one fears Parkinson's and you could be part of helping us do this.
We are recruiting for a Senior Policy and Campaigns Adviser to provide expertise in health, taking forward our policy and campaigning work in this area. This role will maximise the organisation’s impact to improve these policies for people living with the Parkinson’s, their carers and families.
To be successful, you will have a detailed understanding of the NHS, health policy landscape and what this means for local services. You will also have demonstrable practical experience of influencing government and public policy.
You will have experience of using a robust evidence base and building effective relationships with service users, politicians, professionals and service planners to deliver change for people affected by the condition.
You will also have proven skills in leading and representing organisations in coalitions, alongside highly developed analytical and communication skills.
