*Job, London/Cambridge* Alzheimer’s Research UK, Dir External Affairs, £dep, clos ?

The closing date may well be in the attached PDF though it didn’t leap out at me…

Alzheimer’s Research UK
Diretor of External Affairs
Competitive salary (dependent on experience) and benefits


Reporting directly to the Chief Executive, the Director of External Affairs will be responsible for increasing ARUK’s profile and influence with the general public, Government, opinion formers and the science community. The post holder will ensure that ARUK’s messages are heard and that our influence is increased in our bid to defeat dementia. This position is responsible for all external communications, both verbal and written which will involve close working with the Chief Executive and senior colleagues to ensure consistency and potency of ARUK’s messages. This role will involve working at the highest levels of government, with industry, the science community and other audiences to help increase dementia research funding and improve the environment for UK dementia scientists. The role will also involve some international elements, recognising the need for the UK dementia research field to make firm its position as a world research leader. While the role is envisaged to be based in the London area for around 50% time (we have use of meeting space there), close liaison with the Chief Executive and fellow directors at the office near Cambridge will be needed, together with guidance of the team coming under this directorship.
