The MND Association focuses on funding research, improving access to care and campaigning for people living with or affected by MND in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We have over 11,000 members forming a powerful network that provides information and support for people with MND, their families and carers. We fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments, and brings us closer to a cure. We campaign and raise awareness so the needs of people with MND are recognised and addressed by wider society. We have over 10,000 active volunteers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and over 200 employees, all dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by MND, now and in the future. We improve care and support for people with MND, their families and carers.


As a key member of our Executive Leadership Team, you will play an essential role in co-designing and leading on the development and implementation of a new People, Culture, and Inclusion strategy. This will run across the charity as we transform to an organisation where staff and volunteers can truly realise their ambitions and deliver their roles with impact to our whole community. Importantly, you will ensure we are able to attract, retain and develop exceptional talent in the charity, while ensuring learning is valued, and diversity and inclusion are front and centre of all we do.

We are looking for a strategic, visionary and engaging people leader with a strong track record of shaping and implementing people and culture strategies during transformational change. You will bring experience of leading teams to success and working across an organisation to help instil a strong people culture where everyone feels valued, empowered and included. Collegiate and driven to succeed, you will work closely with me and the wider leadership team to lead the charity towards continued success. 

Whatever your background, you must be able to demonstrate a real understanding of what motivates people to work or volunteer with us and the complex, often highly challenging and emotive environment we operate in. 

As our Director of People, Culture and Inclusion you will actively embrace and look to further develop the positive organisational culture that exists here, taking it to a new level. We want to learn, share, challenge, collaborate and empower and ensure our employees, volunteers and trustees represent the diversity of the communities of which we are a part, keeping all of those living with MND at the heart of all we do.
