Alzheimer Scotland is the leading dementia organisation in Scotland. We campaign for the rights of people with dementia and their families, whilst providing an extensive range of innovative, personalised, and therapeutic support services.

We are committed to improving the lives and opportunities of people living with dementia, their carers, partners, and families as their journey transitions from the first point of contact through to end of life and we believe nobody should face dementia alone. 

We are now looking to recruit a Community Activity Organiser for the East Renfrewshire locality. This is an exciting role in which the successful applicant will be able to play a key part in making East Renfrewshire a truly dementia-friendly locality. You will establish a range of community activities and opportunities across East Renfrewshire that fill identified gaps and meet the needs of people living with dementia and their families.

The successful applicant will have a positive approach to dementia. You will be flexible, creative, and innovative in your approach. You will be sensitive and compassionate with the ability to support people in times of difficulty or distress. You will be an excellent communicator who can work effectively both with individuals and with groups. You will have a positive approach to your own continued professional development and a willingness to participate in relevant training. A relevant qualification and previous experience of working with people with dementia would be an advantage. A driving licence and access to a car during working hours is essential.
