Current vacancies

Specialist Support & Information Nurse

We have an exciting job opportunity for an experienced neuroscience nurse to become a key member of our Services team. You’ll be providing information and support to help people understand their diagnosis, treatment, side-effects and how to manage their long-term condition. This support is provided via a range of communication channels including telephone, email and social media. We are based in our London office with flexibility for some home working.

In addition to this work, an important aspect of the 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. 

Although we work in an office, not a hospital, we still help those affected by a neurological problem, and their families - everyday. This is a unique opportunity to acquire new skills and professionally develop in a supportive learning environment, utilising your clinical knowledge and experience in a non-clinical setting.

About you

As an NMC registered nurse, you will understand what good communication looks like and be willing to develop your 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 as well as an understanding of the impact on everyday life.

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, interest free season ticket loan, 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays, childcare vouchers and flexible working by agreement.
