People living with MND are at the heart of everything we do
We could share a lot of information about what makes the MND Association a special place to work. We could tell you how we believe in living by our values - openness, commitment, respect, collaborate, heart; about our commitment to offering the best training and opportunities for personal development and growth; our emphasis on the health and wellbeing of staff; promoting equality, diversion and inclusion and the continual improvement of the workplace.
Having said all that, we feel our staff are best placed to tell you about working at the Association.
This is what they say:
"One of the things that has struck me about the MND Association is the engagement of our staff in the cause. Everyone wants to do the very best to support people living with MND no matter what their own role within the Association. There is also a focus on continual learning and improvement which combined with a very supportive culture makes it a great place to work." Linda Allen, Director of Fundraising — National Office, Northampton
"I feel privileged to be a part of this organisation that is continuously striving towards improving the care and support of people living with and affected by MND." Prachi Majrekar, MND Connect Adviser — National Office, Northampton
"I enjoy working as part of the Association's small but busy office in London and have felt immense job satisfaction in being a part of the Association's campaigning efforts." Daniel Vincent, Senior Policy Advisor — CAN Office, London
"I'm continually impressed by the passion, commitment and enthusiasm of staff and volunteers. I lead a number of national initiatives and have been given so many different opportunities to develop, use existing skils and be involved in the future of the Association." John Gillies-Wilkes, Regional Delivery Manager — Home-based
"Taking that first call from someone who has just been diagnosed with MND fills me with enormous need to let them know that we are here. We are one big happy family & together we will fight this dreadful disease, those affected with MND are not alone, because we are here for them." Teresa Deacon, Receptionist — National Office, Northampton
"Working at the MND Association gives me the chance to help people with MND and I know that the job I am doing goes some way to assisting people living with this terrible disease.
