Further information


Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. There are 850,000 people with dementia in the UK in 2015 with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025.

At Alzheimer’s Society we are continuously developing the range and quality of our services – and that calls for professionals, like you, who can lead our teams and help us achieve the very highest standards of efficiency, innovation and service.

Working closely with the Operations Manager, you will be responsible for recruiting, developing and supporting employees and volunteers within your service area. This will include promoting a culture of individual responsibility, effective teamwork, integrity and inclusion. You will manage budgets for all the services in your area, making sure that contractual agreements are adhered to, and that every service complies with the required legislative, quality and financial standards. We will also rely on you to contribute to grant applications, tender submissions and the planning for new services.

This role has an ambassadorial dimension. You will help raise awareness of dementia and our work by participating in media and campaigning activities at local level – and build strong relationships with local commissioners and other relevant organisations.

Educated to QCF/NVQ Level 4 or equivalent in a relevant subject, you will need experience of managing services in health or social care setting – and delivering them within a quality assurance framework. A strong track record of leading, motivating and developing a team is essential, and you will be comfortable working collaboratively across departments.

The ability to manage budgets and control expenditure is also important, and you are likely to have some experience of raising the public profile of an organisation or group of people. Add to that a good understanding of dementia and an appreciation of the value of volunteers, and you will be perfectly placed to make your mark as part of our forward-thinking team.

If you have the qualities we’re looking for, and are passionate about improving the quality of services and improving the quality of life for people with dementia we can promise you excellent career development, a highly supportive environment and the opportunity to put your personal and professional stamp on our vital care services.
