Based in Bristol, Alive is a charity dedicated to improving the lives of older people and training their carers. We believe passionately that all older people should feel connected to the world around them, and have the right level of activity to enable them to live full and meaningful lives.
This is a great opportunity to join a dynamic and ambitious charity in a sector with huge need as we look to open our very first Pilot Meeting Centre in Bristol to support people living with dementia and their carers.
We are seeking an exceptional person to be our first Meeting Centre Manager.

You will be client facing for 3 days a week, 5 hours per day, you will manage two staff and work with the Alive team to recruit volunteers. You will be responsible for the day to day running, from budget monitoring, to liaising with families and partner organisations. You will be involved in evaluating the impact of the Meeting Centre for attendees. Experienced at working with people living with dementia, you will have strong interpersonal skills, be highly empathetic, a positive outlook and a collaborative approach to achieving goals. But mostly you will be passionate about dementia care and improving post-diagnostic support.
