We are looking for a skilled individual to engage across diverse sectors and push for change that will support people with dementia and help them to live well, complementing our specific activity on health and social care.

This national role will analyse sector policy, drive forward influencing activity and proactively engage and maintain relationships with external stakeholders.

About you

We’re looking for an individual with experience of working in a policy related role, with knowledge of sector policy and/or health and social care policy.

You will need strong analytical, research and influencing skills. Alongside project management experience and good presentation and interpersonal skills.

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.
