Parkinson’s has no cure. Together, we’ll find one. Until then, we’re here for everyone with Parkinson’s and their friends, families and carers. Campaigning for better services, searching for new treatments, and providing support to everyone who needs it.
Join us by finding your role at Parkinson’s UK. As well as making a real difference to the lives of people with Parkinson’s, you’ll also get some great benefits, including flexible working.
Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion
Anyone can get Parkinson’s. It’s vital that the people who work for Parkinson’s UK are representative of our diverse community. We actively encourage people from all sections of the community to apply, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, age, disability, sexual orientation, or religion.
We ask everyone to submit an anonymous CV and personal statement when they apply for a role at Parkinson’s UK. This helps us make the process as fair as possible. If we invite you to an interview, we’ll let you know the themes of the questions we’ll be asking, to help you prepare.
If you have Parkinson’s and have the skills and experience required for the role, we’d love to see you for an interview.
We consider the needs of everyone who applies for a role at Parkinson’s UK. If you have a disability, long-term health condition, mental health condition, are neurodivergent, or have care responsibilities and need support at any point during the application process, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to help. You can email [email protected].
We’re proud of our culture at Parkinson’s UK, and strive to be a welcoming, friendly, and inclusive place to work. We want everyone to feel safe and comfortable to be themselves.
Here are just some of the ways we support our colleagues and encourage equality, diversity and inclusion:
- We have affinity groups, which are safe and confidential spaces for people to share their lived experiences to support them during their journey with us.
- Along with our equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) lead, our EDI Forum champions equality, diversity and inclusion across the charity. And challenges the charity to improve the diversity of our staff.
- We offer both hybrid and remote-based contracts, depending on the role. Plus opportunities for flexible working and we also operate a flexi-time scheme.
- We offer a range of enhanced leave, including maternity, paternity, adoption, shared parental, family, disability, and sabbatical leave.
- We consider all reasonable adjustments to contracts for people with disabilities or care responsibilities.
- Our pay structure makes sure that everyone who does the same job is paid exactly the same.
