Regional Administration Coordinator
Dementia devastates lives. By 2021, 1 million people will be living with the condition. But dementia won't win. Until the day we find a cure, Alzheimer's Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity and we will champion and empower anyone affected by dementia – wherever they are, whatever they're going through. Everything we do is informed and inspired by people affected by dementia and we are looking for someone to join us who is equally passionate and driven to help us achieve our aims.
Our strategy, a New Deal on Dementia, sets out a vision for an inclusive society where people affected by dementia have the relevant information, advice and guidance to participate on their terms, in a dementia friendly society.
The Operations Directorate is at the heart of this strategy and we are reshaping our administration structure to focus on specialisms that allow us to realise our strengths and build on the excellent work we have done to date and grow our service to provide advice and support to anyone diagnosed with dementia.
Look behind our success, and you will find a modern and efficient business operation that supports us in making a difference to thousands of people affected by dementia. We need talented people, like you to help us do even more! Are you up for a challenge?
