Job description

RNRMC is looking to recruit a Transition Support Guide, principally based in the South West to join its Transition Support team.

RNRMC, with our many partners, strives to provide assistance to serving and former sailors and marines and their families, with the aim of ensuring they feel valued and supported, throughout their lives. We support the serving community through improvements to working environments, efficiency, morale, welfare, sport and adventurous training, and veterans and families through a wide range of services and partnerships. We collaborate across the military sector and wider, ensuring our funds deliver the outcomes our beneficiaries need.

The Board of Trustees have agreed an exciting, new direction for the Charity as part of its recent Strategy review. This is the first strand to develop a stronger beneficiary advocacy role and will provide the evidence to create a proactive and holistic suite of support provision to the whole Naval Family. The role holder will be the principal member of the Transition Support team in the South West reporting to the Transition Support Case Manager who is based Portsmouth.  The role will focus on guiding those who may be considered vulnerable as they leave the Service, as well as their families, to achieve a successful transition from service life and into the wider civilian world, regardless of their needs or reason for leaving. 

For the right candidate, this role presents a rare opportunity to be at the heart of this new initiative whilst operating directly in support of the charity’s future direction of greater beneficiary advocacy. It would be an advantage to have previous experience of case-working or side-by-side assistance in the provision of welfare support but this is not essential. It is more important to have a genuine interest supporting people to problem solve and achieve personal goals. It would also be an advantage to have lived experience as a Service leaver or family member of a Service leaver. In addition, you must be excited by the prospect of bringing new ideas and experience to the table in a fast, growing and dynamic organisation and be able to positively contribute to developing and delivering a first class Transition Support service.

The role of Transition Support Guide will suit a confident and enthusiastic individual capable of guiding positive individual outcomes by building relationships based upon trust and understanding, underpinned by the ability to create effective relationships with numerous other charity partners. Specific training will be provided so that your skill set can be enhanced to suit the breadth and level of guidance we are aiming to deliver.

The successful applicant will have mature and capable interpersonal and leadership skills, a strong empathy for the Navy Family and the values of RNRMC and be keen to expand their experience to guide those who are at their most vulnerable when leaving the service.  You will be an effective team player within a close-knit team and also display excellent time management and prioritization in coordinating your outputs.

You will be based in the South West, initially working from home. RNRMC will provide the necessary office equipment to permit this as well as a transport allowance to enable you conduct your role across the region. This role will attract a starting salary of £30-35k, depending on experience, and will include an excellent benefit package.

If you feel you have the required skills and experience for this role we would like to hear from you.

Please note this role requires DBS checks.
