About you

We are looking for an experienced policy and campaigns professional, able to push the boundaries through innovative campaigning that ‘gets onto the agenda’. We are a small charity with big ambitions, and we’d like yours to match. You will feel an affinity with the 700,000 families in the UK who are living with dementia and have a passion for their cause. You will have deep understanding of the political landscape, with knowledge and experience of campaigning and influencing at all levels, to drive real change. You will be adept at working with senior stakeholders and partner organisations and understanding how their priorities align with DCC’s.

Ideally you will have some knowledge or experience of dementia and/or the healthcare landscape, though this is not essential.
