Job Description

In this new role, you will be leading development of community engagement and events for Age UK Sutton, an independent local charity working to make the London Borough of Sutton a more age friendly place.  We are proud to have been named as lead partner for older people in the local area plan, and work closely with local statutory, corporate, and community partners to share knowledge and improve outcomes.

Working closely with our small staff team, you will be responsible for overseeing our programme of social and learning events for older people, influencing events like focus groups and panel discussions, and community fundraising activity.  You will also work closely with the senior team to coordinate our emerging corporate relationships plan.

You will need to be a creative and organised leader, able to take an organisation wide view of activity programming, and experienced in supporting colleagues to identify priorities, monitor outcomes, and to  deliver excellent quality.  You will have a good understanding of how community and corporate fundraising can be incorporated into a wider events programme. A demonstrable understanding of the type of activity that enables smaller charities to make an impact and a personal interest in the type of work Age UK Sutton does, is vital.

We are a collaborative, friendly team, making a difference to older people in Sutton through our services, influencing work, and focus on identifying and addressing need in our area.

Age UK Sutton offers flexible working and is a family friendly employer.  We offer generous holiday, a match funded pension, and ongoing learning and development opportunities as part of our commitment to continuous improvement.
