Would you relish the opportunity to use your skills and experience to improve the lives of one million older people in financial hardship?

Independent Age is looking for enthusiastic and skilled individuals to join our Board of Trustees. If you’re passionate about our cause and want to help shape the future of our Charity, we’d love to hear from you.

Across the UK, more than 3 million older people are living with limited financial means and experiencing inequalities. At Independent Age, we believe that no older person should face financial hardship. That’s why, by 2027, the charity’s goal is to have improved the lives of one million older people. Through our policy, campaigning, information and advice and grant-making we improve lives by increasing the financial well-being of older people in financial hardship, enabling greater choice and independence.

We are seeking to appoint new Trustees to our Board. Board members  serve on at least one of our Committees, which oversee our finance, risk, governance, services, and policy work. We estimate the time commitment for trustees to be around one day per month on average. 

We are particularly looking for skills and experience in one or more of the following:

  • Fundraising strategy and performance
  • Service delivery and performance 
  • Grant-making strategy and evaluation
  • Impact measurement 
  • Investments (experience of social/impact investing would be a bonus)

If you have the passion to support our cause and strengths in any of these areas, we would love to hear from you.

To apply for this role, please send the following to

  • An up-to-date CV
  • A supporting statement (no more than 2 pages) that outlines what attracted you to Independent Age’s mission (detailed here) and how your skills and experience relate to the role of Trustee.
  • A completed diversity monitoring form (optional).

We actively encourage people from a variety of backgrounds, experiences and skill sets to join us and help shape what we do.
