About the role
The role of External Development Manager leads the operational promotion of our Dementia Connect Service, to health care professionals across three countries. This is a strategic role that, through the development of plans and implantation of processes, will ensure our Dementia Connect service is embedded within professional organisations and institutions – enabling more people affected by dementia to be aware and have access.
Referrals from health care professionals are essential to the success of Dementia Connect. If the referral process is embedded within organisations and institutions, health care professionals will be more confident and aware of how to refer a person into the Dementia Connect service, allowing us to provide them with the guidance and support they need.
The External Development Manager will be responsible for the identification and realisation of on boarding all internal and external stakeholders, allowing them to refer people affected by dementia into our Dementia Connect offer across the three nations as well as sales and promotion of operational products and services. They must work collaboratively with the Wider Operations Leadership Team, Country Director Wales and Northern Ireland, Head of Regions, Marketing, relevant colleagues in the Policy, Campaigns and Partnerships directorate to achieve these outcomes.
We are looking for a decisive, dynamic and motivated individual, to lead the uptake of referrals from health care professionals. The External Partnerships and Development Team are a high performing team who are driven by results – in this case the increase in referrals through promotion to the target audience. The ideal candidate will be comfortable and capable of working in a fast-paced friendly team of professionals, be competent at managing competing priorities and have expertise in developing relationships with external clients and partners.
Dementia Connect is our new service aimed at increasing our reach to people with a diagnosis of dementia, our referral targets are high, and we are seeking an ambitious and focused development manager to help exceed our targets through various methods of sales and promotion. This is a relatively new role which means we are looking for somebody who is confident using their initiative and can be creative and use their vision to develop successful strategic plans.
Our employees work hard every day to make a true difference in people's lives. We are proud to support them with a range of benefits, recognition and many options for working agilely. All of which contribute to a strong work life balance. We also have various learning programmes to support you in your development and help you grow to realise your potential and shape a career with Alzheimer's Society.
