Dementia can devastate lives, but we won’t stop until we improve everyone’s experience. By 2025, 1 million people will be living with the condition in the UK, and many millions more carers, partners, families and friends are affected.

We provide help - we support people affected by all types of dementia through some of the hardest and most frightening times. Whoever you are, whatever you’re going through, you can turn to us for practical advice, emotional support, and guidance to the best next step.

We provide hope - we are, and we empower people affected by dementia to be, a leading force for change - using cutting edge research and influencing to push for breakthroughs that’ll change the lives of people affected by dementia, now and in the future.

About the role

The diverse and tenacious Regional Engagement team have a fantastic opportunity for a Community Fundraiser who can hit the ground running and take care of our supporters across West Northern Ireland.

About you

You will be the face of Alzheimer’s Society for those fundraising in your region - you will be their biggest cheerleader, their go-to person, and their sounding board. Being a people person goes without saying. Previous experience as a fundraiser is not essential, although it will be ideal.

The ideal candidate will be:

  • A big thinker, curious, and resilient
  • Exceptionally organised
  • Incredibly motivated
  • Confident in talking to supporters and colleagues alike 
  • A team player
