About the role

With dementia firmly on the public policy agenda we have an ambitious programme of work, including making society more inclusive of people with dementia and influencing the government and NHS structures. We are looking to recruit a senior policy officer to play a vital role in this work.
The role involves working independently and proactively, identifying and developing key areas of policy and building relationships with leading policy influencers and briefing colleagues.

The senior policy officer will report to the policy manager and will be a member of the Policy, Campaigns and Partnerships directorate. You will build relationships at all levels inside the organisation.
With responsibility for managing two policy officers and a wide range of key work areas, in particular across health, regulation and evidence, you will be a skilled policy expert. You will play an integral role in shaping Alzheimer’s Society’s future strategic direction and fuelling our efforts to deliver policy change and influence the external environment to effect lasting change for people affected by dementia. You will need to demonstrate an ability to deliver change and to convey messaging to a range of audiences, with some experience of working with the media preferable.
Significant experience working in a policy related role is essential.  Excellent oral and written communication skills are also vital and you will need to work with internal and external stakeholders at all levels. Line management experience is required. Experience in planning and working strategically is also desirable as is an understanding of influencing channels in the health and care sectors.
