Are you passionate about Equity, Diversity and Inclusion?  Do you have a background in HR and experience of recruitment and selection?  If so, this could be the role for you.

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.

We want to ensure that our recruitment and selection of staff and volunteers is as inclusive as possible and promotes diversity.  Drawing on research, expertise and best practice, this role will review our end-to-end recruitment processes including role descriptions, advert templates, our recruitment system, application processes, candidate sourcing mediums and mechanisms, and interviewing and selection techniques.  Determining any quality standards and accreditations we should work towards, the postholder will also recommend and implement changes, and support with embedding this by producing guidance notes and providing training to managers.  

At Independent Age we live by our values. We are purpose-driven, compassionate, expert, collaborative, accountable and inclusive. We champion inclusion and celebrate diversity to create a culture where everyone knows that they belong and can bring their whole self to work. We encourage applications from all backgrounds as we know this makes our charity stronger.

If you are passionate about our cause, share our values and believe you have the skills for this role, then we’d love to meet you.

We offer great benefits including 28 days annual leave plus public holidays, a generous pension scheme with life assurance, and fantastic learning and development opportunities. We know that a good work life balance helps us perform at our best and supports wellbeing. 

A full-time role is 35 hours a week and we also are open to this role being worked on a part-time basis on a minimum of 28 hours per week. 

Flexible working hours and hybrid working is standard for everyone (those contracted to work in the office usually attend one day per week). But if you need a different form of flexibility, we are happy to talk flexible working. As part of our commitment to supporting colleagues in balancing their work and family life, and to supporting parents, soon to be parents or colleagues who have other caring responsibilities, we also offer a number of enhanced leave provisions and benefits. 

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.
