Alzheimer Scotland, Scotland's national dementia charity, is seeking a passionate and dedicated Centre Activities Coordinator to join our team on a full-time basis. As a Centre Activities Coordinator, you will play a vital role in developing and delivering our brain health and dementia support programs at our new centre in Motherwell.
This unique approach is inspired by the pioneer, Alois Alzheimer, who first identified the brain disease we now recognise as the leading cause of dementia. By building a range of engaging and supportive services in the heart of their community, the Centre Activities Coordinator will support people to access:
Advice - our expert advisors can offer one-to-one help with anything from building cognitive resilience, to managing money matters and legal issues.
Listening - we offer places to be heard, whatever the question or concern, whenever help is needed.
Opportunities - to connect, learn and share with others in a similar situation.
Information - on all stages of the brain health journey, whether someone is worried about their brain health or living and caring well with dementia.
Support - everyone is welcome in our Centres, where those affected by dementia can feel safe with trusted staff who understand what they’re going through.
As a Centre Activities Coordinator, you'll collaborate closely with the Centre Manager to create a comprehensive program of activities that align with our ALOIS principles. You'll play a key role in liaising with stakeholders from Health and Social Care, NHS, and the wider community to enhance service delivery and raise awareness about brain health.
Your exceptional organisational skills will be put to use as you plan, review, and evaluate the activities within the Centres. With a focus on continuous improvement, you'll ensure that individuals accessing our services have a welcoming and inclusive experience, where their concerns are heard and understood.
To excel in this role, you'll bring excellent interpersonal and communication skills. Your passion for supporting individuals affected by dementia will drive you to create a safe and supportive environment. Familiarity with health and safety regulations, along with proficiency in standard office software and IT systems, will enable you to coordinate activities seamlessly.
If you're ready to contribute to our vision of ensuring nobody faces dementia alone, apply now for the Centre Activities Coordinator position at Alzheimer Scotland. Relevant experience of working with people with dementia would be an advantage, as well as a willingness to learn and participate in training.
