Age Scotland is the national charity for older people. We work to improve the lives of everyone over the age of 50 so that they can love later life.

We support and enable hundreds of communities and older people’s groups across Scotland. We provide information, friendship and advice through our free helpline and publications. We tackle loneliness and isolation with our Friendship Line and much more.

We work in Scotland with older people’s groups who provide vital activities and services for older people in their local community. We campaign on the issues that older people tell us are important to them.

We know that growing older doesn’t come with a manual. Later life may bring opportunities and challenges, and people my need to know about rights, organisations and services which are often unfamiliar. That’s why we provide free information and advice to help older people on a diverse range of topics.

You will work closely with the Information Manager to grow our information services. Developing and producing innovative and useful information and advice resources across a number of channels including print, digital and face to face workshops, you will enable older people to make informed decisions about their future.

Develop and deliver rights-based training for the Age Scotland helpline team.

Living our values, you will approach the role with integrity, while involving, inspiring and empowering our teams, so together we can create better outcomes for older people in Scotland.

The post will be a hybrid blend of office based (in Edinburgh) and home-based work. As a guide, 40% of the working week will be based at our office in Causewayside, Edinburgh.

In return for your hard work, enthusiasm and commitment to our values you’ll receive a generous holiday allowance, a range of learning and development opportunities, optional healthcare benefits and a contributory pension scheme with employer contributions of 9%.
