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

We have an exciting opportunity to join the North West and Northern Ireland regional engagement team as the Community Fundraiser for Cheshire and Merseyside at Alzheimer’s Society. You will work remotely from home, with occasional travel and community outreach work. The environment is fast-paced, creative and diverse.  Your primary focuses will be providing first class stewardship to our amazing supporters and proactively securing new business to the organisation. You will be joining a team of four other community fundraisers who are maximising the potential in their own areas, as well as working with other teams and directorates to maximise relationship building, income generation and life time value to the organisation.

If you have a passion and skill for building lasting relationships at the heart of the community that will make meaningful difference to people affected by dementia, this is an exciting opportunity for you. You will build on your business acquisition skills, fantastic donor stewardship and volunteer management experience, to truly make your mark in this rapidly expanding charity.

About you

We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic person who has excellent experience of working with donors and volunteers. We are looking for someone who can demonstrate the relevant skills and experience required in the job description.

You will need to be an excellent communicator and confident in contacting supporters over the phone as well as giving presentations to various groups, associations and local businesses. You will need to demonstrate your ability to be a real team player, as well as having the ability to work well on your own initiative. This is a busy role often with conflicting deadlines so the ability to prioritise your workloads and have an organised, methodical approach is essential.

You will have experience of recruiting, managing and working with volunteers to deliver organisational objectives as well as a proven track record in achieving financial and non-financial targets and good working knowledge of budgets is also essential.

The successful candidate will benefit from working in a dynamic and well-supported team where you will have a direct impact on the lives of people affected by dementia.

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.
