Job vacancies and volunteering opportunities at the Brain & Spine Foundation


Are you ambitious and passionate about supporting people affected by neurological conditions? Then work for the Brain & Spine Foundation! We’re a growing charity with lots to offer for the right people.

Current vacancies

Specialist Support & Information Nurse

About us

Our mission is to improve the quality of life of people affected by neurological problems by providing expert information, support and education. 12 million people in the UK are currently living with a neurological condition including common conditions such as dementia and stroke, and others that are less well known, such as subarachnoid haemorrhage and Chiari malformation. The Brain & Spine Foundation (BSF) is the only UK wide charity providing information and support to people with all these conditions. 

What the job involves

You will be a key member of the Services team, providing information and support to help people understand their diagnosis, treatments, side-effects and how to manage their long-term condition. This support is provided via a range of channels including telephone, email and social media. Please note that there is no direct patient contact as part of this role.

You will also have the opportunity to use your knowledge and clinical expertise charity wide to support the development of written information for service users as well as programme content for both health professional and patient conferences.

In addition to this work, an important aspect of this role will be to forge new relationships with key health professionals, develop opportunities to promote our services, and identify educational opportunities in primary and secondary care organisations. 

As a registered nurse, you will understand what good communication looks like and would be willing to develop clinical information and support skills through telephone and digital channels. You will have substantive clinical experience at NHS Band 6, working with people affected by neurological conditions.

Supporting you

We are a small, friendly, supportive charity that will commit to ensuring your continued professional development as well as offering excellent benefits including contributory pension scheme, paid registration fees, interest free season ticket loan, 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays, childcare vouchers and flexible working by agreement.
