About the role: 

Our five-year strategy sets out ambitious aims, built around three core pillars, to change the landscape of dementia forever. With dementia firmly on the public policy agenda we have an ambitious programme of work, including making society more inclusive of people with dementia and influencing the government and NHS structures. We are looking to recruit a skilled Policy Manager to lead this work. 

In addition to hugely raising the profile of dementia and social care reform in recent weeks, our current high profile activity in backing the Daily Mail campaign to end the ‘Dementia Tax’ is dependent on the development and use of high quality, meaningful policy evidence that sets out the issues with clarity and supports our campaigning and lobbying calls.

About you: 

The Policy Manager will report to the Head of Policy and will be a member of the Policy, Campaigns and Partnerships directorate, liaising at all levels inside the organisation. 

A natural leader, you will have responsibility for managing the Policy Team and a wide range of key work areas, with a dedicated and high performing team. You will be a dynamic, skilled policy expert, playing an integral role in shaping Alzheimer’s Society’s future strategy direction and wider focus to support the directorate in policy development, evidence gathering and influencing to effect lasting change for people affected by dementia. 

Alzheimer’s Society embraces diversity, inclusion and accessibility for all of our people. We are committed to building a diverse organisation that represents the communities we serve and ensuring inclusion in everything we do.
