Working at Parkinson's UK

At Parkinson’s UK, we champion different ways of working. Find out more about the types of contracts we offer.

Whether you’re a Parkinson’s adviser in Scotland or a financial accountant based in London, we have a variety of ways we can support the contribution you make to the Parkinson's community.

We offer 2 types of contracts: hybrid and home-based. We also offer full-time and part-time roles, as well as compressed hours and zero hours.

With both contract types, you'll have the option to work flexibly within our flexi-time policy. Find out more about the benefits of working for Parkinson's UK.

Hybrid contracts

Our hybrid contracts offer you the flexibility to work from both your home and our UK office, which is currently based in Victoria, London. If you’re applying for a role that’s full-time, you'll be required to attend the office 2 days a week (or 1 day a week if you work 3 days per week or fewer). This is just a minimum requirement, you can attend the office as often as you like.

What you need to know:

  • We do not cover travel expenses to and from the UK office, so please make sure you can travel at least 2 days per week from your home address. Some roles may require you to attend the office more often. Check the job ad for more information.
  • Equipment such as a laptop will be provided for you to work from home and the office. Any other equipment for home-based working is not provided, unless part of a reasonable adjustment.
  • If you choose to work from home, you’ll need to make sure you have a confidential space to work and a good internet connection.

Home-based contracts

There is no requirement for home-based roles to work from our UK office. These roles are fully remote and based all over the UK. Most home-based roles are for staff members who work in their local area with the Parkinson's community.

What you need to know:

  • The charity will provide you with everything you need to work from home full-time.
  • If you’re required to attend the UK office or external events, travel costs will be covered by the charity.
  • You’ll need to make sure you have a confidential space to work and a good internet connection.
  • All of our roles will require in-person contact. This will be driven by the needs of our community and the team that you work in.
