Full Description


Active Retirement Ireland (ARI) is a voluntary organisation for older people with a national membership of over 24,500 people and over 550 local associations. Founded in 1978 and currently organised into nine regional councils, the movement’s principal aim is to help men and women, who are retired or semi-retired, from paid or unpaid work, to lead a full, happy and healthy retirement by offering organised opportunities for a wide range of activities – holidays, outings and socials; creative and learning programmes; indoor and outdoor sports and community work. Members range in age from 50 -100+ years and cover a range of socio-economic backgrounds.


Reporting to the CEO, the Programme Coordinator will oversee the digital skills programme (HiDigital) that is delivered to the Active Retirement Ireland membership by volunteer Digital Ambassadors. The ideal candidate will have:

  • Experience in project or programme management, ideally in the community/voluntary sector
  • Demonstrable understanding of digital inclusion programmes
  • Programme and project management experience with a strategic focus and experience of initiation and completion of programmes
  • Evidence of working with partners from outside of the charity sector
  • Experience of planning and controlling budgets
  • Networking skills and strong existing personal network in the community and business sectors

ARI promotes an independent attitude to ageing and challenges attitudes and perceptions of older people – in this rewarding role you will have the opportunity to engage with committed volunteers, the CEO, Board of Directors and supporters. If you’re a project manager who is a people person with a collaborative work ethic, who can juggle multiple tasks and deadlines, then this could be the role for you!
