Independent Age works to ensure that as we grow older, we all have the opportunity to live well with dignity, choice and purpose. To achieve this we provide information, advice and connection services for older people; campaign on the issues that matter most to them around health and care, poverty and loneliness and provide capacity building support to others working in the sector.
This is an exciting time to join the charity as we transition to our new ambitious strategy for 2021 – 2023 and increase our profile, impact and reach so more people can live a happy, connected and purposeful later life.
This role is key to providing an efficient, robust and proactive People, payroll and Learning and Development administration service to the Charity’s teams. Working closely with the People and OD Manager and Learning and Development Manager to support Teams across the Organisation throughout the employment lifecycle and in the achievement of their objectives.
The ideal candidate will have extensive experience of working in an administrative role providing a full range of administration support services. They will have excellent organisational and time management skills with a solution focussed, proactive approach to problem solving. The ability to work autonomously, balance workload across multiple workstreams to meet deadlines, along with excellent attention to detail and great customer service skills are also key, as are excellent IT, database and record management skills. Experience providing comprehensive HR, payroll and L and D admin support would be an advantage but is not essential.
