The Role

At the Royal British Legion, we believe in building on potential. As a Case Officer your ability to provide a person-centred solution based on a thorough analysis of circumstances and needs could have a real impact on people’s lives.

At its heart, RBL is a people organisation. People who want to do the very best for others, while at the same time making the most of the opportunities and experiences we offer them.

We are the country’s largest Armed Forces charity, with 210,000 members, 50,000 volunteers and a network of partners and charities; helping us give support wherever and whenever it’s needed.

As a Case Officer, you will be responsible for developing and managing individual support solutions, drawing on inputs from a wide network of professionals, agencies and volunteers

If successful, the main duties of your role will be:

  • Manage casework support, providing direct support, advice and guidance to volunteers as required and taking the lead on individual beneficiary cases where necessary.
  • Assess beneficiaries’ needs and draw on support from the regional specialist team and other providers as necessary, ensuring that support is made available in an integrated way that best meets the beneficiaries’ needs. Develop creative solutions in response to identified beneficiary needs, drawing on inputs from volunteers and Legion members / branches as appropriate.
  • Develop and maintain a thorough and detailed understanding of direct Legion support services and support services provided by others (both statutory and non-statutory). Support the Advice and Information Team Leader and Area Manager in better understanding the needs of the beneficiaries in the Area to inform the commissioning of specialist services.
  • Advise beneficiaries of support which may be available to them and assist them in accessing this support as necessary.
  • Maintain an up-to-date knowledge of the statutory benefits framework.

This role is predominantly home-working, this means that you would be engaging with people over the phone, through video conferencing and by utilising other appropriate communication methods. There will also be some Face to Face meetings required in the designated region. You will be required to reside within this geographical area and a full driving license and access to a vehicle is essential.

The role is subject to relevant employment checks, including Enhanced DBS Clearance.
