Working in a role that helps others is extremely rewarding

Do you want to wake up on a monday morning looking forward to going to work? If that's a yes then why not join the largest charity supporting older people in Leicestershire and get that 'feel-good-factor' by improving the lives of local older people.

Here at Age UK LS&R we have over 30 different services which help over 20,000 people each year.  This means we have a wide range of exciting and varied roles on offer.  Whether you want to provide support, care or join a business function such as retail, finance or HR, we'd love to hear from people who are enthusiastic about helping others.

The job satisfaction in working for a charity can be way more rewarding than the daily grind of working in the average business; the reason we exist as a charity is to make a real difference to the lives of others and that feels great!  Whether that's giving a person with dementia a great day out at one of our Day Clubs, providing emotional support to an unpaid carer so they can carry on caring for their loved one, running a mental health cafe to prevent mental health crisis or providing great customer service in one of our charity shops.  We want people with passion and energy to join our great team.  

We believe we are a friendly organisation and we welcome a diverse workforce to support our ongoing mission, which is to provide great services that make later life more enjoyable and fulfilling for local older people. If this sounds good, then we want to hear from you!
