Contract, 12 Months, Full-time
Job description

Location: Homebased in the North East or Yorkshire, England

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a full time Casework Administrator on a 12 month fixed term contract to join the North East & Yorkshire Region at SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity.

You will be part of the regional office team and will be responsible for providing specialist administrative support, working closely with SSAFA branch volunteers in order to ensure a consistent, timely, quality service is provided to SSAFA beneficiaries.  This will include supporting the volunteer network including our highly trained caseworkers. You will be call handling, signposting and triaging initial enquiries, dealing with elements of some cases and at at times, dealing remotely with cases in full in collaboration with SSAFA branch volunteers and other service charities.  In doing so you will utilise a computerised case management system and Microsoft Office software applications.

To help you establish yourself in this new post you will receive excellent training and induction to SSAFA and will influence the processes and procedures within the new office, working closely with the Regional Casework Manager and Regional Operations Support Manager.

The post is home-based, but you may have to travel occasionally around the North East & Yorkshire Region of England.

About the team

In this new role you will be working closely with volunteers from the eight SSAFA branches in the North East & Yorkshire, supporting them to administer casework for SSAFA beneficiaries. The successful candidate will work as part of a larger support team which will include a Casework Manager and a Regional Operational Support Manager.

About you

To carry out this role successfully you will have a track record of providing excellent customer service by telephone, e-mail and face to face. You will have used Microsoft Office 365 successfully and be able to learn the computerised case management system MOSIAC, to a high standard.  The successful candidate will have experience of planning and managing their own workload, with minimal supervision. It would be advantageous to have an understanding of the way of life for today’s Armed Forces, veterans and their families, along with insight and experience of supporting volunteers. An understanding of the voluntary sector and preferably the military charity sector landscape across the North East & Yorkshire would be valuable.

About SSAFA

SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been providing practical, emotional, and financial support to our Forces and their families since 1885. Last year our teams of volunteers and employees helped more than 79,000 people in need, from Second World War veterans to those who have served in more recent conflicts or are still currently serving, and their families.

SSAFA understands that behind every uniform is a person. We are here for that person – any time they need us, in any way they need us, for as long as they need us.

SSAFA is committed to using the Disclosure & Barring Service to ensure we, as an employer, safeguard those we serve.  The successful applicant for this role will be required to undergo a DBS check as part of pre-employment enquiries.
