Job description

The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund is the RAF’s leading welfare charity. The Welfare Directorate is responsible for understanding and meeting the social welfare needs of those in the RAF Family, from those currently serving in the RAF and their families through to veterans of all ages. This is achieved through the delivery of a wide range of services, initiatives and programmes which last year helped over 55,000 individuals.

We are seeking an individual to raise awareness of the Fund’s welfare offer amongst social welfare agencies across Norfolk but also, crucially, to help address the issue of social isolation and feelings of loneliness experienced by some members of the ex-service RAF Family. This is a community based position involving frequent travel and visits to the homes of beneficiaries across Norfolk as well as potentially accompanying beneficiaries to social activities. The post holder will be expected to undertake occasional travel to our Head Office in London and on occasion support the Funds caseworking function with visits to beneficiaries across the East of England.

The role will involve engagement with a variety of social welfare agencies to encourage those agencies to identify potential beneficiaries, particularly those who are socially isolated. The post holder will be working with socially isolated individuals to identify socially enriching opportunities to reduce feelings of loneliness, to develop actions plans to connect the individual into these opportunities and coordinating support to overcome any barriers preventing successful connection into to these socially enriching opportunities.

The successful candidate will have experience of working in a social welfare role supporting individuals. They must have strong people and relationship-building skills, and a strong empathy with, connection to or understanding of the issues affecting the Armed Forces community. Any successful candidate for this role will need to be DBS checked.

A detailed job profile is available below and on the Fund’s website. To apply, please send your CV together with a covering letter, not longer than three sides, detailing why you believe you are suitable for this role and how you meet the person specification to Martin Botting, HR Business Partner via email.

The closing date for applications is 5.00pm 09 February 2022. Please note interviews will take place via Video Conferencing Platform on 14, 16 & 17 February.

Please note that due to the high number of applications expected, only candidates shortlisted for interview will be notified.

A copy of the Fund’s Candidate Privacy Notice can be found on our website. As an equal opportunities employer, the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund is committed to the equal treatment of all current and prospective employees and does not condone discrimination on the basis of age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, gender identity, or marriage and civil partnership. We aspire to have a diverse and inclusive workplace and strongly encourage suitably qualified applicants from a wide range of backgrounds to apply and join the Fund.

The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund is a Registered Charity (No. 10810090).
