We’re making big changes. We are becoming more accessible, easier to reach and providing a more integrated service for the Service community. The focus for our Area teams will be on getting out into the community, reaching out to those we support through GP surgeries, hospitals, local authority services and charities we work with, making sure we’re accessible to many more people in locations across the country.
As a Case Officer, you will work with individuals eligible for Legion assistance to help them to access the right support in a timely and seamless way in areas such as finance, employment, health or housing advice or overcoming temporary crises. You will also support the work of our volunteer caseworkers. A self-starter, confident at working independently, you will be responsible for forging successful relationships with statutory bodies and other agencies to maximise our reach and impact.

You’ll also need to be a strong team player, with excellent communication, planning and organisational skills.
It is essential that you have an empathy with the UK armed forces community and some knowledge and understanding of this area would also be an advantage.
