Let’s take on dementia together

Closing date: 5pm on Thursday 22 March 
Interview date: TBC 

About the role: 

We are inspiring millions of people to make big and small changes in their communities, with the aim of making the country more dementia-friendly. By 2020 we want at least half of the population of England to be living in dementia-friendly communities. 

About you: 

Do you have a knack for getting people behind a campaign? Are you an excellent communicator? Do you believe that it is possible to change the world by mobilising communities? So do we! 

If you are highly organised, with great interpersonal skills, able to travel across Yorkshire and Humberside, we want you! 

You will help build dementia friendly communities across Yorkshire and Humberside, mobilising organisations and individuals. 

You will be committed to putting people affected by dementia at the heart of everything we do, and you will implement creative ways to make sure their views are heard by any community working towards becoming dementia-friendly. 

You will be speaking to people at all levels across your area so great influencing skills are essential. 

You must also have the ability to manage several tasks at once and keep yourself motivated to perform under pressure. 

This is a role in which the results of your hard work will be tangible: you will see communities in which people affected by dementia are included without fear or prejudice. 

There is great work being done already, but you will be the one to ensure everyone in your area has access to the latest tools and resources to make the Yorkshire and Humberside more dementia-friendly. 

Alzheimer’s Society is committed to equal opportunities. 

You may have experience of the following: Community Engagement Coordinator, Charity, Third Sector, Dementia, Not For Profit, Social Care, Community Development, Policy, Healthcare, Voluntary Sector, Development Officer, Community Engagement, etc
