ILC-UK maintain a consultants register which includes a list of people from whom we commission occasional written work and research.

We would like to add the following to our consultants register:

  • Researchers with quantitative and qualitative experience
  • Writers
  • Journalists

We are particularly interested in consultants with experience and knowledge of health policy and/or financial services issues.

Consultants should set out what type of written and research work you are willing to do (opportunities range from writing up events to undertaking desk research) and the topics you have experience of or are confident to work on.

Please send your CV and covering letter to as soon as possible


We are recruiting for a temporary Events Coordinator to coordinate and support our busy events calendar for the remainder of 2018, build on our external communications and assist the Head of External Affairs on communications around our Future of Ageing conference.

New international report explores the relationship between life expectancy and productivity in developed countries.

ILC-UK are once again looking for someone to speak for 10 minutes on the plenary platform in front of 250 people at our annual Future of Ageing Conference (29th November, London).

“Auto-enrolment has successfully led to millions more saving each month towards a pension, but the Committee is right to call for action to get people saving more. We are pleased they support our recommendations to consider automatic escalation of pension contributions for some individuals, and we agree that a strategy is needed to automatically-enrol the self-employed."

Dr Brian Beach, Senior Research Fellow at ILC-UK and who gave oral evidence to the Committee, welcomes the Committee’s call for stronger action by Government and EHRC and says it’s crucial that employers understand what ageism really is.

“The latest Fiscal Sustainability Report makes it very clear that we are facing an uncertain future. Demographic pressures are set to continue to dominate the agenda, with health, pension and adult social care spending all set to rise as a proportion of total GDP."
