There are currently over 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, and this is expected to increase to 1 million by 2025, and 1.4 million by 2040.
In response to this, Dementia UK provides specialist dementia support for families through our Admiral Nurse service. When things get challenging or difficult for people with dementia and their families, Admiral Nurses work alongside them, giving the one-to-one support, expert guidance and practical solutions that people need. The unique dementia expertise and experience an Admiral Nurse brings is a lifeline – it helps everyone in the family to live more positively with dementia in the present, and to face the challenges of tomorrow with more confidence and less fear.
The charity has seen significant income growth over the past five years. Despite Covid-19, we have had our most successful fundraising year to date and we
have ambitious plans to maintain this growth so we can significantly increase the number of Admiral Nurses, and the specialist support they provide.
Corporate Partnerships and engagement will continue to play a key part of this expansion as a key income stream for the charity. Corporate fundraising income at Dementia UK has seen considerable growth over the last few years and we have established strategic partnerships with a number of major companies across a range of sectors. Working within our wider Philanthropy & Partnerships team, this role will help us to continue to grow this vital income stream and ensure the success of our strategic long-term partnerships. This role is an incredibly exciting one as it works across both the partnership development and partnership management functions to raise vital funds to help families facing dementia.
As part of our commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, we shortlist on the basis of responses to the application questions only. Although we need a CV, it will not be used to shortlist and so candidates need to make sure they fully answer the questions. We do not require a covering letter.
Interviews are due to take placeon the 10th of May.
