Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity dedicated to diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we’re challenging the way people think about dementia, bringing together the people and organisations who can speed up progress, and investing in research to make life-changing breakthroughs possible.

A vacancy has arisen for a Public Affairs Manager to join our dynamic and well-respected team. We work to support and influence the policy environment to ensure that scientists can undertake research to better understand the diseases that cause dementia and to discover life changing treatments. We are also working to prepare health systems to be ready for future dementia treatments.

The postholder will report to, and work closely with, the Head of Policy (Access and Innovation) as well as the wider Policy and Public Affairs teams. The role may include work in London and elsewhere in the UK.

You will be part of an organisation that has been recognised nationally as an outstanding place to work.
