Role

Revive MS Support has championed bespoke health and social care for people affected by Multiple Sclerosis since our foundation in 1984. We are Scotland’s leading provider of support for people living with MS and their families. As a Centre of Excellence, we aim to be the main driver of new and improved services setting new standards for MS care across Scotland so that our clients’ resilience and wellbeing are maximised.

This is an incredibly exciting time to join us as we emerge revitalised from the pandemic and re-establish our full range of hands-on therapies, advice and support for people affected by Multiple Sclerosis. We also have ambitious plans to reach more people affected by MS and improve outcomes, both here in our Therapy Centre in Glasgow and throughout Scotland.

To ensure we achieve our goals, we are recruiting a Welfare and Benefits Officer to provide guidance and practical assistance to maximise the financial support available to individuals and families affected by MS.

This role will supplement the current service which currently operates 2.5 days per week, and the successful applicant will have experience as a Welfare and Benefits Officer or similar, with a clear and thorough understanding of statutory welfare and benefits systems.

If you have the skills, initiative, and experience to take Revive MS Support on the next part of our journey as we strive to improve the lives of people affected by MS, we’d love to hear from you.

Employees can join our pension scheme with employer matched contributions of 3% or 5% of salary, and death in service cover is also available.

Holiday entitlement is 28 days a year (pro rata) of which 3 are taken between Christmas and New Year, along with 10 public holidays.
