Age UK East London is a great place to work. If you are passionate about making a real difference in the lives of older people, check our vacancies below. 

Why Work with Age UK East London

We want East London to be a place where people age well, and where older people live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives.

It is our goal to ensure that older people in East London can live safely and independently; are connected to each other, their friends and their families; are informed about services and entitlements available to them, and have their experience recognised and their voices heard. 

If you share our goals and could help us reach them, we would love to hear from you. 

  • Last year we supported over 24,000 older East Londoners

  • We helped to increase the income of older East Londoners by £3.4 million

  • We supported the safe discharge from hospital of over 3,500 people
