We offer the chance to be part of a friendly, creative and effective team. Generous holiday allowance, training provided, and flexible working arrangements available.
We help families affected by dementia navigate a seamless route through services available to them, guiding them along the way.
We are looking for someone with experience working with people with dementia or memory loss and carers to join our busy team of staff and volunteers. In this role you will help people affected by dementia to identify and access services that will maintain their health and wellbeing. These include one-to-one support, both over the phone and face to face, and group activities including cognitive stimulation activities, carer groups, information sessions for people living with dementia and carers and training.

Community Engagement and Fundraising Coordinator Ref: CEFRC2020
We are fortunate to have supporters who regularly give to us to sustain and grow the wide range of services we offer to local carers. We could not maintain the range of services we offer without the voluntary income we receive.
We are now looking for a Coordinator to take our community engagement and fundraising to the next level. With a track record of hitting robust targets, you will excel in identifying and engaging supporters, giving them both the practical support and inspiration to help them in their fundraising efforts. You’ll be persuasive when you’re talking about the work we do, so that local groups and businesses will be excited about supporting and working with us. But you’ll also have an eye for process, be financially literate and experienced in working with a database.
If you are an experienced fundraiser, a people person, a numbers person and are inspired about helping a growing local charity achieve even more for local people, we would like to hear from you.
Deadline: Monday 2 March 2020, 10am
