Playlist for Life, the UK's leading music and dementia charity, is seeking a Communications Officer to join our team and make a difference to the lives of those living with dementia, their families and carers.

The Communications Officer will play a key role in our small team, working directly with the Head of Communications and Campaigns to deliver the charity’s exciting and engaging communications plan during a milestone year – our 10th anniversary!

Playlist for Life is a national dementia charity that provides vital support to families living with dementia by using music to improve their quality of life. We have a simple vision: we want everyone with dementia to have a unique personal playlist and for everyone who loves or cares for them to know how to use it.

If you have a keen eye for a story, a passion for building online communities, and a desire to make a difference to anyone affected by dementia, then we want to hear from you.

We have big plans for our 10th birthday year, so it’s an exciting time to join the charity and make your mark.
