Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading dementia charity. We provide information and support, improve care, fund research, and create lasting change for people affected by dementia.

About the role

Alzheimer’s Society is here for anyone affected by dementia to help them navigate some of the hardest and most frightening times of their lives, to provide help and hope for those who need us.

We provide support, practical advice and ‘navigation’ to others that can help. Together with people affected by dementia, we are a force for change - using research and influencing to push for breakthroughs that will help people keep control of their lives.

Alzheimer’s Society receives support from a large number of high-profile, influential stakeholders and celebrities across all sectors. These include names you will be familiar with from the entertainment industry alongside eminent clinicians, philanthropists, politicians and business leaders. We are looking for an energetic, proactive Senior Ambassador and Celebrity Manager to join our Marketing and Communications directorate at an exciting time in terms of tackling the challenge of dementia, helping influence the future of social care, and in the lead-up to the launch of the Society’s new ambitious strategy. The directorate is responsible for providing leadership and strategic direction to the Alzheimer’s Society’s marketing and communications functions to build emotional engagement and impact among our external audiences, and to champion the needs of people affected by dementia.

About you

As a leader of a team of five, you will drive forward an inclusive, collaborative, high-performance environment, making sure that our values and expected standards of behaviour are embedded across the organisation, starting with your own team. Reporting to the Associate Director of External Relations and Media, you will be responsible for leading the Society’s Ambassador and celebrity function, with the authority and gravitas to strategically maximise the potential of external stakeholders and celebrities across all teams, creating an overall stakeholder strategy for Alzheimer’s Society, including stakeholder mapping. You will drive forward our ambitious celebrity strategy, with proven high level influencing and persuading skills, and build our ongoing overall Ambassador and celebrity communications and engagement plan.

You will play a key role in positioning Alzheimer’s Society as the leading dementia charity in the UK and you will collaborate with directors and senior managers in preparing for and supporting the brand re-fresh for the Alzheimer’s Society, and other such significant Society-wide projects.

You'll be a first-class people manager able to inspire, coach and unite people towards a common goal. You’ll demonstrate compassion – operating with kindness and empathy and not shying away from tough conversations.

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 contributing 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.

If you're interested in being part of this exciting future, we want to hear from you. We are committed to equal opportunities and welcome applications for all people. If you are considering applying, and something is holding you back – just give us a call, we love to talk!
