About the organisation

MS Society (Multiple Sclerosis Society)

We’re the MS Society – a community of people living with MS, scientists, campaigners, volunteers and fundraisers. We understand what life’s like with MS, and we support each other through the highs, lows and everything in between. And we’re driving research into more – and better – treatments. For everyone. Together, we are strong enough to stop MS.

Could you help us collate case studies of our volunteers and set up a process on how we can collate them going forward? We’re looking for a volunteer who will be able to talk to our volunteers, find out more about their volunteering role with us and their motivations to volunteer. This would greatly help us promote our charity, inspire people to volunteer with us and put a spotlight on our own!

Role Aim: 

We’re the MS Society – a community of people living with MS, scientists, campaigners, volunteers and fundraisers. We understand what life’s like with MS, and we support each other through the highs, lows and everything in between. And we’re driving research into more – and better – treatments. Could you help us promote our charity by establishing a case studies series about our volunteers’

Duties: 

We’re looking for someone who will be able to talk to our volunteers, find out more about their volunteering role with us and their motivations to volunteer. You will then write a case study based on your conversations with them and build a bank of case studies.

We will use these case studies on our website, social media and other communication to promote volunteering and highlight the activities our existing volunteers do and the rewards they receive from doing so.

You will be volunteering with the Volunteering team at National Centre in Cricklewood, London and we will provide you with all the resources you need to carry out the role.

You will need to use your own initiative in how you set up the interviews, writing the case studies and have ideas as to how we could best set up a process to collate case studies in the future.

Skills needed: 

We need someone who is proactive, approachable and comfortable talking to people in person or over the phone.

Training: 

As part of your role, you may have to complete some mandatory training such as GDPR, equality, diversity & inclusion and tone of voice.
