Job Details

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 work on 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 crucial in supporting us in our goal to provide clear, trustworthy information to older people on the issues that matter most to them. Its main purpose is to ensure that our wide range of information and advice resources for both older people and their friends and family is kept up to date. The post holder will be responsible for writing creative and appropriate text for products including guides, factsheets, website content, articles and videos, and ensuring that the content remains accurate, relevant to its target audience, and follows internal policies and guidelines (such as for accessibility and branding).

The ideal candidate will have demonstrable experience of writing and developing resources aimed at the public, and a keen eye for detail. They will have excellent communication skills and the ability to present complex issues in an accessible way. Experience of engaging stakeholders and testing new materials is also key to this role. 

Independent Age is committed to safeguarding and follow Safer Recruitment practices to ensure we are safeguarding those we work with. We therefore ask that you supply your full work history with explanations for any gaps in the application documents you submit and if offered the post, we will require two employment references including your current or most recent employer.

We are passionate about equity, diversity and inclusion.  We celebrate diversity and champion the differences and nuances which make each and every one of us unique, creating an inclusive environment where we can all be ourselves.

As well as a competitive salary we offer 28 days annual leave plus public holidays, a generous pension scheme with life assurance, learning and development opportunities, season ticket loans, a cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme. Colleagues based at our London Office are offered hybrid working and have the opportunity to work from home on days when they are not required to be in the office.

To apply, please visit our website to submit a cover letter detailing how your skills and experience meet the criteria within the Job Description and Person Specification, along with your CV.

Interviews will be held on Wednesday 17 November.

This is an exciting time to be considering joining Independent Age. Our new strategy marks a major expansion of our activities whilst ensuring that older people are at the heart of everything we do.

Whatever happens as we get older, we all want to remain independent and live life on our own terms. That’s why, as well as offering regular friendly contact and a strong campaigning voice, Independent Age provides clear, free and impartial advice on the issues that matter: care and support, money and benefits, health and mobility.  

Future Plans

In 2015 we began our ambitious programme to greatly increase the impact of Independent Age. At the heart of our strategy is the expansion of our services and campaigning activities. Not only does this mean we reach more people, it also gives us even greater experience on which to base all our work.
