Working for Age UK Northumberland

Age UK Northumberland is a local independent charity with over 300 members of staff. We help over hundreds of local older people every year, offering care, activities, events, befriending and information. It's a great place to work if you really want to make a difference to older people's lives.

Encouraging Local Talent

The Charity's volunteer programme includes opportunities for workless adults to train for employment and, for adults approaching retirement, an opportunity to consider part-time volunteering as part of a phased retirement process.  We have an active apprenticeship programme enabling school leavers to train in skills to enable careers in a wide range of sectors locally, from health & social care to business administration and catering.

Training and Induction

Age UK Northumberland offers various opportunities for training and development for employees, including a comprehensive induction. In 2018, Age UK Northumberland introduced a Volunteer and Staff Education Programme, where employees are invited to attend sessions from each Service Manager, to continue their learning about the organisation. 

Gender Pay Gap Report

Age UK Northumberland is required by law to publish an annual gender pay gap report due to the number of employees within the organisation. This is our report for the snapshot date of 5 April 2019.
