Age Scotland is the national charity for older people. We work to improve the lives of everyone over the age of 50 so that they can love later life.
We support and enable more than 1100 community groups across Scotland, provide information and advice through our free helpline and publications, tackle loneliness and isolation with our Community Connecting Service and much more. We work to influence policy makers and run campaigns to make Scotland the best place in the world to grow older.
Will you help us to achieve this by supporting a team who will help drive forward our ambitious plans?
A new position has been created within our Policy and Communications team to provide Admin support for the delivery of a National Dementia Forum.
Age Scotland has been awarded a ground-breaking investment from the Life Changes Trust to deliver a National Forum for Dementia Policy and Practice which will support people with dementia and carers to become experts, leaders and influencers in Scotland.
The creation of this National Dementia Forum will bring together people with experience and expertise in dementia, locally and nationally, with the aim of evidencing what will create better lives for people with dementia and unpaid carers. The Forum will provide space to scrutinise policy and practice in many areas, including housing and dementia, sport and dementia, the arts and dementia, and human rights and dementia.
The Forum will promote evidence of what works well so that national and local policy and practice can be reviewed and, where necessary, adjusted. This is so that Scotland can become an exemplar of how, in all aspects of life, people with dementia can find meaning, be fully supported and involved.
The Dementia Team Administrator will provide high quality administrative support for the Dementia Project and Policy and Practice Forum, while supporting the administration of the Partnership Development Fund. The successful candidate will also work with people living with dementia and their unpaid carers, developing good professional relationships with them and ensuring they are at the heart of the forum’s work.
In this role you will be required to have experience of providing extensive administrative support within a specialised area, arranging all aspects of meetings and delivering high-level customer service.
This post is funded for 5 years through to 31st March 2024.
Closing date: 5pm on Monday 11th February 2019
Interviews will be held in Edinburgh on Monday 18th February 2019
