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
This is a key co-ordination role within two volunteer-enabled services which the Society offers. Both use trained volunteers to support people with dementia. The first helps them to make a Lasting Power of Attorney using the online tool provided by the Office of the Public Guardian and the second to appeal NHS Continuing Healthcare decisions.
The role supports the supervisor of both services to manage access to them and to deliver high quality information, as well as managing records and waiting lists. It also provides core technical and administrative support to the volunteers.
Do you want to support people with dementia to exercise their rights and help them gain more control of their lives? Are you a good communicator who can quickly absorb complex information, and explain it clearly but in a kind and empathetic way? Are you organised with strong attention to detail and ability to problem solve? Can you work within limits of strict confidentiality and as part of a team? Would you find delivering an excellent service to people with dementia fulfilling?
If so, and if you are educated to degree level or equivalent or have extensive relevant work experience, this could be the role for you.
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.
