Director of Community

London & Home based
£101,400 per annum

We’ve come a long way since 1969, when a woman called Mali Jenkins founded the charity in a one-room office in Putney, London. Today, we’re the largest charitable funder of Parkinson’s research in Europe, driving forward the search for better treatments and a cure, at home and internationally. We are a dynamic network of expert staff, health and social care professionals, volunteers and researchers, all focused on delivering to and learning from our incredible community. Parkinson’s UK is a dynamic and progressive charity seeking to find a cure and improve life for everybody affected by Parkinson’s. Our dedicated and skilled staff, talented and passionate community, and responsible fundraising capability provide us with the foundations to break through the many challenges. We aim to harness the rapid advancements in medical science and technology to improve our services and develop new treatments that slow, stop or reverse Parkinson’s and manage its symptoms and side effects.


Following significant investment, we have a clear strategy to build on the quality and reach of our community services – so that everyone living with Parkinson’s across the four nations of the UK has the right information and support to live as well as possible and to feel more in control of life. 

We’re looking for a leader who will turn this strategic aim into a reality through the delivery of high-quality integrated services to enable our local teams to work alongside local groups and the wider Parkinson’s community to provide services that are impactful and valued.  

This rewarding leadership role will put you at the centre of our work leading, shaping and embedding our community services to deliver the greatest impact for people living with Parkinson’s.  

You’ll also be joining our brilliant Executive Leadership Team who are driven and committed to making our ambition a reality!
