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
Dementia is the greatest health challenge of our time. In the wake of Covid-19, people affected by this devastating condition need Alzheimer’s Society more than ever. Our high-value fundraising teams are working tirelessly to secure gifts and partnerships from trusts, foundations, major donors and corporate partners – ensuring people continue to receive essential support today, while driving vital research, campaigning and innovation work to improve lives in the future.
For these teams to thrive, they need high quality, joined-up administrative support. As High Value Administrator, you would be providing this to our Philanthropy, Corporate and Supporter Impact fundraising teams. Through a mix of financial tracking, database and diary management, plus ad hoc support with fundraising, marketing and events, you’ll work in tandem with one other High Value Administrator to act as a single hub of co-ordination, support and organisational knowledge. In so doing, you’ll play a pivotal role in meeting our ambitious high-value income and growth targets – while promoting greater efficiency and cross-team working.
To succeed you’ll need to be a confident and highly-organised administrator, with excellent communication skills, knowledge of key digital platforms (e.g. Word, Excel, PowerPoint), plus outstanding attention to detail. You are likely to have some existing experience in a similar role, which demonstrates your ability to process complex information accurately and efficiently, while successfully prioritising a fast-paced workload – finding time to deal with short-notice deadlines alongside longer-term projects.
You’ll be someone who enjoys working at the heart of a highly motivated, close-knit team that is looking to grow and diversify in the coming years. As such, you’ll have an eye for potential improvements in administrative systems – and not be afraid to propose them – while also being able to build positive and trusting relationships with a full range of colleagues in high-value.
Alzheimer’s Society is committed to equal opportunities.
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.
