  • A wealth of creative ideas and approaches.

  • Agency experience desirable.

This is an exciting time for Parkinson’s UK and we would love you to join us!

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we're unlikely to be fully reopening our London office during 2020. Therefore, the role will involve a mixture of office and home working until we’ve re-opened our London office. We will continue to review the situation inline with government guidelines.

We aim to find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's - and you could help us achieve this.

We offer a variety of paid job roles and volunteer opportunities both at our UK office in London and across the UK

Our Chief Executive, Steve Ford, shares what it is like to work for Parkinson's UK and join our movement for change.
