Independent Age is recruiting for their new Public Fundraising Team!
At Independent Age their mission is to ensure that as we grow older, we all have the opportunity to live well with dignity, choice, and purpose. With an ageing population there has never been a greater need with 2.1million older people now in poverty and this is only projected to increase.
There has never been a better time to join Independent Age as they work to increase their profile, impact, and reach so more older people can live a happy, connected, and purposeful later life.
We are recruiting a variety of roles within the Public Fundraising team that span across Direct Marketing, Individual Giving, Community Fundraising and Events and we are keen to speak with talented individuals from diverse backgrounds to join them on this journey who are also passionate about the cause and making a difference.
At Independent Age they live by their values. They are purpose-driven; compassionate; expert; collaborative; accountable; inclusive. Working at Independent Age, you are joining a highly ambitious charity committed to investing in its staff and pioneering innovative ways of working.
At Independent Age they celebrate diversity, and they champion the difference and nuances which make each one of us unique. They believe that everyone should benefit from equity of opportunity, and no one should be subject to any form of discrimination. They hope you will help them in creating the respectful, equitable, inclusive environment we all want to enjoy life in, and in celebrating the rich diversity that exists across our nations.
If you are passionate about the cause, share their values and believe you have the skills for these roles, then we’d love to chat to you.

About Independent Age
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 can provide you and your family with clear, free, and impartial advice on the issues that matter: care and support, money and benefits, health, and mobility.
I have had the pleasure of working for Independent Age for 7 months as the Public Fundraising Assistant within the Individual Giving team. From the day I joined I felt there was a welcoming, inclusive and supportive working environment with an excellent team around me that are positive, friendly and always willing to offer their help. Working for Independent Age is incredibly rewarding with a real sense of fulfilment. I enjoy getting to work collaboratively across other teams and finding out about all the great work we have going on!
Independent Age is the first company I have worked at where I have felt settled, fully valued, and have had the opportunity to develop and progress, through the fantastic training and development opportunities. I never have the Sunday blues or dread coming into work, in fact I have fun everyday so that makes all the difference in keeping motivated and focused! I am proud to be a part of the Independent Age family and appreciate the opportunity to build a career whilst helping improve the lives of older people in the UK.
