Dementia is a huge and growing health crisis. By 2025, it’s predicted that over 1 million people in the UK will be living with this often devastating condition. Almost all of us will know someone with dementia – whether it’s a family member or a friend. There is no cure for dementia, but there is care. And care can change lives. That’s why Dementia UK is here – our nurses, called Admiral Nurses, who we continually support and develop, provide life-changing care for families affected by all forms of dementia – including Alzheimer’s disease.

Dementia UK 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 challenge events fundraising will play an important part of this growth. Although challenge events were hit hard by the pandemic, our team adapted quickly to seize opportunities and test new propositions, and in the last year we’ve achieved far more than we thought possible.

We are now looking for an ambitious, results-driven challenge events expert who can maximise opportunities to grow the programme, and manage the team to achieve incredible results.

You’ll be adept at delivering marketing strategies that drive participant numbers and income; and a strong collaborator who thrives in a busy, fast-paced environment.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you..

As part of our commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, we 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 attached.
