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 charity has seen significant income growth over the past five years, 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.
You would be joining a passionate team at an exciting time, as events and community fundraising will play an important part of this growth, making up over a third of the charity’s income next financial year. Although events and community activity was hit hard by the pandemic, we adapted quickly to seize opportunities and test new propositions, and in the last year have achieved far more than we thought possible.
We are now looking for a results-driven fundraiser with strong attention to detail and a creative flair to deliver our flagship fundraising event – Time for a Cuppa, as well as support on insight-led product development cycles. You’ll be a strong collaborator who thrives in a busy, fast-paced environment.
If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you. Please see the job description for more details.
Interviews are scheduled for Monday 22nd of March.
As part of our commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, we anonymously 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. Please ensure you send your answers to the application questions along with your CV. We don't require a covering letter.
