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
Every day across Alzheimer’s Society, our people tell our story: to someone with dementia; to a commissioner; to a funder; to a researcher; to a politician; to a volunteer. We need people to unite against dementia if we are to achieve the ambitious aims of the New Deal on Dementia. Our mission will succeed only if we galvanise a movement against dementia.
Have you got what it takes to build on our success so far in making dementia the issue of our time? Then we can promise you a stimulating and varied role in an award-winning team. The successful candidate will spot proactive opportunities on a daily basis to frame, provoke and sustain the dialogue on dementia, ensuring it is seen and discussed as a major global 21st century issue, and that we are the go-to thought leader. You will devise and execute creative, integrated campaigns that advocate the rights of people with dementia, change public policy and galvanise people to join with us as part of a social movement for change. Your campaigns will also better ensure Alzheimer’s Society is known for funding research into the cause, cure, care and prevention of dementia.
You will possess a great news sense, a flair for placing stories that build an evidence based narrative, and the ability to jump on and maximise opportunities in the media. You must have experience of working with the national media, excellent communication skills, an understanding of the political environment, and the desire to work in a fast-paced team committed to making a difference.
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.
