We are in the midst of an unprecedented social care crisis. At the heart of this are the millions of unpaid carers who look after friends and relatives with little recognition or respite. At Dementia Carers Count, we stand for them. We campaign for change, provide practical and emotional support, and through our new commercial service we are working with businesses to provide tangible help for dementia carers throughout the UK. 2024 marks a key milestone for us, as we launch our new strategy to grow our activity and impact.

The Communications and Digital Engagement Officer will be part of the newly formed Communications and Growth team, which is the engine growing our income and profile, so that we can support dementia carers for many years to come.  This role will be responsible for

marketing and digital engagement activities,
which raise awareness of Dementia Carers Count and foster connections with our community of carers,
campaigners and donors. Your work will help us reach and support more carers, raise funds and campaign
for changes which will ensure that no dementia carer feels isolated, invisible or alone.

We’re looking for someone with breadth of experience, who has a willingness to support others and learn new skills.  The role can be based anywhere in the UK, with attendance at occasional in-person meetings, typically around once a month, and usually in London.

We’re a small team, passionate about making a difference for dementia carers. If you believe you have the skills and experience to join us, then we’d love to hear from you.
