About The Royal British Legion
Careers in Advice and Welfare
Across the country, in every city and on every street, the Legion is there to support our Armed Forces community. As the largest charity of our kind, we have 235,000 members, 60,000 volunteers and a network of partners all helping us give support wherever and whenever it's needed.
Every day, everyone in our Advice and Welfare teams dedicate themselves to bettering the lives of those in this community.
Be it a conversation about financial support, physical and mental wellbeing, employment, housing, independent living or social support – working in these teams means the time you’d spend with those who need our help, and the advice you’d offer, could have a profound effect on their lives.
It's this mission, this scale, this challenge and the values we all live by, that makes the Legion such a fulfilling place to thrive.
We also want those who need our support to be able to get it when they need it, and from those best placed to give it. Which is why we’ve invested in multi-channel support services.
So, if you want to give your days meaning. To put your passion into a role with real impact. To support people and be supported yourself. In an inclusive team that faces every challenge together. Whatever your interests and ambitions, we think you’ll find a role here that works for you, with career opportunities right across the UK.
