We have an exciting opportunity to join the North West and Northern Ireland regional engagement team as the Community Fundraiser for Cheshire and Merseyside at Alzheimer’s Society. You will work remotely from home, with occasional travel and community outreach work. The environment is fast-paced, creative and diverse. Your primary focuses will be providing first class stewardship to our amazing supporters and proactively securing new business to the organisation.

If you have a passion and skill for building lasting relationships at the heart of the community that will make meaningful difference to people affected by dementia, this is an exciting opportunity for you.

This is a busy role often with conflicting deadlines so the ability to prioritise your workloads and have an organised, methodical approach is essential.

You will have experience of recruiting, managing and working with volunteers to deliver organisational objectives as well as a proven track record in achieving financial and non-financial targets and good working knowledge of budgets is also essential.

The successful candidate will benefit from working in a dynamic and well-supported team where you will have a direct impact on the lives of people affected by dementia.
