Finding Vacancies

Our current vacancies are listed here and updated regularly. 

If there are no current vacancies, or you can't see a role that fits your talents and criteria, you can set up email or RSS alerts to be notified when a role that matches your requirements becomes available. 

How To Apply

If you find a suitable role, simply click on the Apply Online button and follow the instructions. 

If it is your first time applying for a role at Independent Age, you are required to create an account (Why do I have to create an account to apply for a job?). If you have previously created an account, you should log in using these details. 

All applications must be submitted online by Midnight UK time on the closing date.

(NOTE: We may process and screen applications before the closing date for roles where a high volume of applicants is received - this may result in us closing the vacancy early before the advertised closing date. We therefore encourage you to apply as soon as possible if you are interested in a role.)

Application Form

All applicants are required to complete an online application form, which captures basic information such as your name, contact details and permission to work in the UK. Documents, such as a CV and cover letter / supporting statement, can then be submitted to demonstrate suitability for the role according to the job description and person specification.

The online application form can be completed in stages and you can login/logout at any time. The form automatically saves as you enter your information and it is simple to move backwards and forwards within the form at any time prior to submission. Help is available at each stage to guide you through the form.

Before final submission, you can preview your application and can then choose to refine or submit the form. 

If you have specific requirements and need support to apply via an alternative format (e.g. in paper format with a larger font), please contact us so we can discuss and arrange a suitable alternative with you.

After Applying

Once you have submitted your application, you will see in the 'My Applications' area, that the status of your application will show as "submitted" and it will also show the date of submission.

You will also receive an acknowledgment email from us.

After Closing Date

The selection panel will assess all applicants against the requirements of the job description and person specification and then notify the people team of their decision.

The people team will then contact the applicants as appropriate.

The time it takes for Independent Age to respond to candidates will vary depending on the volume of applications we receive and the role itself. However, our goal is that all candidates will be notified as to the outcome of their application within a few weeks of the closing date.

In exceptional circumstances where the shortlisting process takes longer than expected, candidates will be notified of this (usually by email).
