About the role:
As part of running the Dementia Voice programme we have a database to record the details of people affected by dementia ensuring we engage them in the most appropriate way and match their interests and experiences to our Dementia Voice activities. The Dementia Voice database will provide all staff with a method for connecting and involving a community of people.
This role will help us keep the data accurate, provide management reporting, offer colleagues support in using the database, and suggesting database and process improvements for the future.
This will enable us to provide evidence to our own colleagues, decision makers, and the wider society that our work continues to be informed and inspired by people affected by dementia.
Are you passionate about how databases can support business processes? Do you love being responsible for turning data into information to gives colleagues the evidence they need to know how well activities are performing and knowing where improvements can be made?
