  • £28,000 – £28,500 pro-rata
  • Blend of office (Edinburgh-based) and home working
  • Closing 15th April 2021

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 hundreds of community and older people’s groups across Scotland. We provide information, friendship and advice through our free helpline and publications. We tackle loneliness and isolation with our Community Connecting Service and much more.

We work in Scotland with older people’s groups who provide vital activities and services for older people in their local community. We campaign on the issues that older people tell us are important to them.

Our About Dementia team are looking for a part-time About Dementia Policy Officer to:

• Provide About Dementia with technical support and expertise in dementia and related issues.

• Monitor, analyse and influence public policy developments which impact on the lives of people affected by dementia in Scotland.

• Undertake small research projects to enhance our understanding of challenges related to interactions with policy or practice for people living with dementia and unpaid carers of people living with dementia.

• Work to ensure that the evidence from the work of About Dementia creates lasting change.

The post will be a blend of office based (in Edinburgh) and home based work.

Due to the Covid outbreak in the UK, we have adapted our way of working in an effort to ensure the ongoing delivery of services, while minimising risk to our employees. Depending on guidance from the Scottish Government regarding the lifting of lockdown restrictions, this role may initially be completely home based, incorporating office work and face to face contact when it is safe to do so.

If you have the skills, experience and ambition required to fulfil this role, then please apply now.
