Dementia Friendly Swansea have a vacancy for a Dementia Hwb Project Officer based at the Quadrant Shopping Centre in Swansea.

You will be responsible for managing the information that they have in the Dementia Hwb and for the daily operations, working with a team of volunteers and co-production staff. Often you will represent the Dementia Hwb in meetings, being a voice for the visitors to the Hwb and seeking to constantly work in partnership with other local organisations.

Other responsibilities include producing the monthly statistics that show what people need in the area and what help is being sought, creating content for our social media, and managing the website. No two days are ever the same, so you need to be able to manage your workload, respond to changing priorities and keep the team on track with a range of mini projects. As well as thinking on your feet and being a self-starter, you will be friendly and an empathetic listener, knowledgeable about local support and services for people affected by dementia. We work together in a small, innovative team so getting along with others will be key to your success in this role, as will your drive to improve quality of life for others.
