Job description

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 important role supports Independent Age’s marketing and communications team delivering content that presents an authentic narrative of older people’s lives. 

We would be looking to you to bring experience either from working in an in-house studio or in a design or marketing communications agency with proven ability of delivering designs for different media, including print, digital and social.

You should have excellent attention to detail with experience of typesetting copy into templates, an ability to work on multiple briefs with tight deadlines and able to co-ordinate delivery along with any required amendments.

As well as your good interpersonal skills and commitment to collaborative teamwork, you should have the ability to use your initiative to bring the right people together when the need arises to problem solve and find workable solutions.

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 blended working so colleagues have the opportunity to work from home on days when they are not required to be in the office.
