Wise Owls is the UK leading Over 50s employment and support specialists. We are a not-for-profit body who have have been operational since 1999. It was the first organisation to really champion the needs of the over 50’s in relation to online employment and job searching.

Today, Wise Owls offer front line support and finds people meaningful work, lobbys throughout Europe and campaigns against the scourge of ageism. Promoting Age Diversity.

Wise Owls initially received funding to assist older people from the London Borough of Hackney and Haggerston (North-East London) to help them get back into meaningful employment. This service was so successful that it was expanded across the whole of London. Wise Owls has had many successes: It was one of the original organisations to manage the prestigious Prime Loan Fund (aimed at boosting business start-ups established by the 50+); It has won many awards/ accreditations including Investors in People, Matrix and won first prize in the Recruiter magazine awards.

In recent years Wise Owls has widened its focus with projects that have been focused in London. Today Wise Owls are London based with a national reach: Wise Owls are expanding and our website now receives on average 1.2 million hits per month. We are reaching into every part of the country with our projects, our voice is becoming louder and our campaigns are making a difference.
