About the role
This National Dementia Friends Manager will lead a high performing team to develop and deliver the Dementia Friends programme nationally, an Alzheimer’s Society flagship programme. The aim of this programme is to enable a society where people with dementia have equal access to services, are socially included and engaged in communities without stigma or isolation and feel fully accepted, supported and empowered to live the lives they want to lead.
To date 2.9 million people have become a Dementia Friend. We need someone special to drive further reach and impact of this programme. Dementia Friends is the biggest ever initiative to change people’s perception of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts and talks about the condition and it does this through a 45 minute face to face session run by volunteer champions, or a digital alternative. Your role will be to develop and drive what is already globally successful programme in 55 countries across the world to achieve greater impact.
We’ve been running Dementia Friends for 6 years now and it’s time to make some exciting tweaks. There are some incredible foundations but we know we can do more and faster. We have a new strategy and new buoyancy and we need an exceptional leader to take it to the next level.
Inspiring leader? Passionate about community change and driving social movements? Experienced at leading results-driven teams to be the best that they can be?
We don’t mind where you are based in the UK – we endorse agility. We want an experienced people manager and inspiring leader to join our fantastic team.
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.
