Job description
Dementia Adviser

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.

Please note the deadline for submitting applications for this vacancy is 5pm on the closing date.

Dementia Adviser Responsibilities:

As Dementia Adviser you will champion the needs of people living with dementia and their carers through raising awareness. You will be the first point of contact for people referred to the service.

You will be responsible for providing advice and short-term support to people living with dementia and their carers. You will recognise that you can’t do it all yourself and that the support of our partner agencies is also important in effectively meeting the needs of people with dementia and their carers; therefore a big aspect of the role is sign posting and onward referrals to other agencies.

In order to do this you will need to identify and develop links with these agencies in your area. You will be expected to attend relevant meetings and develop networks and identify and support potential joint working ventures. You should have good IT skills, be able to travel independently and be able to seize opportunities that are presented to you.

Dementia Adviser Requirements:

Are you an enthusiastic, inspiring and resilient individual? Can you hit the ground running? Do you enjoy being part of a team and being part of developing something exciting? If you are highly organised, driven, with great time management and interpersonal skills and are able to travel across County Durham then we’d love you to be part of our team!

You will be speaking to people at all levels across your area so great networking and influencing skills are also essential. You must have the ability to manage several tasks at once and keep yourself motivated to perform under pressure.

Of course there is more to it – you will also be committed to putting people affected by dementia at the heart of everything we do and strive to work alongside your colleagues in our dynamic and exciting team to make our service the best it can be.

About Alzheimer’s Society:

Alzheimer’s Society embraces diversity, inclusion and accessibility for all of our people. We are committed to building a diverse organisation that represents the communities we serve and ensuring inclusion in everything we do.

Position: Dementia Advisor
Location: Durham and Chester-le-Street
