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 Dementia Training team are looking for Dementia Training Officer to lead on the development of rights-based training for carers of people living with dementia, and to share responsibility for delivery of all strands of the dementia training programme.

The post will be a blend of office based (in Edinburgh) and home based work but there will be some requirement for you to travel throughout Scotland.

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.
