Independent Age works to ensure that as we grow older, we all have the opportunity to live well with dignity, choice and purpose.

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.

We are looking for a dynamic Public Affairs Officer to join our ambitious team. The successful candidate will ensure that Independent Age’s policy positions and campaigns are effectively communicated to government and parliamentarians. They will create opportunities to amplify the voices of older people in parliament and secure support for our policy calls across a wide group of stakeholders.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • 1-2 years working in public affairs related role.
  • Strong working knowledge of the current political landscape, government, parliamentary processes and party political structures. 
  • Experience engaging and influencing national and local government, parliament and/or other regulatory bodies.
  • Ability to write in a clear, accurate and convincing way for a range of audiences, and across a range of channels, including blogs, letters, emails, and social media. 
  • Proven ability to verbally communicate with a variety of internal and external audiences.
  • An interest in, or knowledge of, the issues faced by people in later life
  • Excellent interpersonal skills.
  • Strong IT skills including use of Microsoft Office packages. 
  • Ability to collaborate effectively within a team. 
  • Ability to work cross-functionally and to secure resources and support from people in different departments.
  • A demonstrable passion for, and affinity with, our cause.

Each day we go from strength to strength, increasing our impact to ensure that older people get a fair deal. We’re excited to welcome a new member of the team on this journey. We look forward to hearing from you.

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, an employee assistance programme and a discount voucher scheme.

We are passionate about diversity and inclusion and creating an environment where we can ALL be ourselves.
