Job Details

The role 

From Panorama to ITV Evening News, Spring Seminar and the Leading in Care Summit, and recently the high-level work to influence the development of the Social Care White Paper, ADASS has been continuously improving how we advocate and work for those of us who are most in need of care and support – nationally, and locally.

We are now looking for an inventive, creative, and strategic coordinator to join our brilliant team and lead ADASS and our members into the next chapter of this journey to transform care and support for all of us in need.

We have an exciting opportunity to join the brilliant, small but high-performing ADASS national team. We are looking for a communication, project management and membership engagement expert, who enjoys working in varied workstreams and in a fast-paced work environment and has a passion for developing inclusive and engaging narratives for a wide range of diverse audiences to increase the recognition and improving the experiences of people who draw on adult social care. A creative and innovative professional, who can strengthen the work of the charity and influence sustainable, positive change.

This is a pivotal role for the charity, connecting with our members, supporting our internal and external communications activity, reporting to the charity c-suite executives and leading a team of two.  

Prior knowledge of Adult Social Care, Health and Care or Local Government isn't a requirement but would be an advantage.

This is a flexible, largely home-based role, with some travel required to our London office, meetings, ADASS and wider events.
