Create a world without dementia
Dementia devastates lives. By 2021, 1 million people will be living with the condition. But dementia won't win. Until the day we find a cure, Alzheimer's Society will be here for anyone affected by dementia - wherever they are, whatever they're going through. Everything we do is informed and inspired by them. Every day, we work tirelessly to find new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for dementia. We provide expert information, training, and support services to all those who need our help. And we are creating a more dementia-friendly society so people with the condition can live without fear and prejudice.
In this role, you will use your communication skills to show the difference we’re making and provide inspirational reporting to our high-value donors to show why their support matters. You’ll also help ensure their funds have been spent correctly, using financial management expertise to track how our restricted income is spent.

About the role:
Can you help us to communicate the impact of our work and inspire the funders who make it possible? Do you have the grant management skills to ensure our donors know whatever they give us, we’ll use it well? If so, join Alzheimer’s Society as a Grant Management and Reporting Officer.
We want Alzheimer’s Society to be the first choice for high-value donors who want to make a real difference – and this role is key. As part of a specialist team of fundraising communicators, you’ll be building relationships with people from across the Society, from the staff who help deliver our services to our expert research team. Your writing skills, attention to detail and numeracy will be key to effectively monitoring how funded work is going and reporting back to funders on the impact of our work.
From following the progress of pilot projects to finding new and creative ways to show our supporters how they’ve made a difference, no two days will be the same. Financial management will also be a key part of your role, working closely with Finance colleagues and budget holders to facilitate restricted asks and track restricted income across the Fundraising directorate.
You’ll bring a track record in grant management and reporting, and proven ability to draft, review and edit documents. You’ll be able to create compelling copy that shows the huge difference our work makes, as well as bringing new ideas that will help us to expand how we communicate our impact. You’ll have a way with numbers, as well as words: a flair for analysing and presenting financial information clearly and succinctly is important too, as are strong Excel skills and a meticulous eye for detail. A creative problem solver who is comfortable managing competing deadlines, your project management ability is complemented by the excellent relationships you’ll build with colleagues across the Society.
Preferably educated to degree standard or equivalent, ideally you will have experience of impact measurement and reporting and/or have operated in a funder-led environment. You’ll be a true ambassador for those affected by dementia, and excited to join a team that’s rapidly becoming central to our fundraising success.
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 and recognition, and to promote 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.
Alzheimer’s Society is committed to equal opportunities.
