Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia charity. We provide information and support, improve care, fund research, and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.

About the role

Working closely with the Area Manager, you will be responsible for recruiting, developing and supporting employees and volunteers within your service area. This will include promoting a culture of individual responsibility, effective teamwork, integrity and inclusion. You will manage budgets for all the services in your area, making sure those contractual agreements are adhered to, and that every service complies with the required legislative, quality and financial standards.

This role has an ambassadorial dimension. You will help raise awareness of dementia and our work by participating in media and campaigning activities at local level – and build strong relationships with local commissioners and other relevant organisations.

Our employees work hard every day to make a true difference in people's lives. We are proud to support them with a range of benefits, recognition and many options for working agilely. All contributing to a strong work life balance. We also have various learning programmes to support you in your development and help you grow to realise your potential and shape a career with Alzheimer's Society. 

About you

Educated to QCF/NVQ Level 4 or equivalent in a relevant subject, you will need experience of managing services in health or social care setting – and delivering them within a quality assurance framework. A strong track record of leading, motivating and developing a team is essential, and you will be comfortable working collaboratively across departments. You will be willing to undertake frequent travel within the area and occasional travel outside of the region.

The ability to manage budgets and control expenditure is also important, and you are likely to have some experience of raising the public profile of an organisation or group of people. Add to that a good understanding of dementia and an appreciation of the value of volunteers, and you will be perfectly placed to make your mark as part of our forward-thinking team.

If you have the qualities we’re looking for, and are passionate about improving the quality of services and improving the quality of life for people with dementia we can promise you excellent career development, a highly supportive environment and the opportunity to put your personal and professional stamp on our vital support services.
