Work for us

The RAF Benevolent Fund offers many opportunities to work, develop and thrive in a number of various specialisations with an overall aim to make the lives of both serving and former members of the RAF all the better in their time of need.

Welfare Services Administrator

Salary: £29,207 and benefits
Location: London

The RAF Benevolent Fund helps over 41,000 people a year. The Welfare Services Department facilitates the application process whereby help and support is given to ex-RAF personnel and their eligible dependants who are in need of assistance as a result of issues such as financial hardship, disability or sickness.

Following an internal reorganisation within the Directorate, we are seeking a highly skilled administrator with data processing skills and a compassionate, enthusiastic and flexible approach to join the Welfare Directorate.

The role involves answering phone calls from existing or prospective beneficiaries on the Fund's helpline, scanning correspondence onto a document management system, creating client records on a bespoke casework management system, updating Excel spreadsheets, and providing ad hoc administrative support which includes minute taking.

The role does involve a considerable amount of data inputting and it is therefore important that the applicant is a fast yet accurate worker, has excellent attention to detail and is happy to carry out repetitive tasks.

Please see the job profile. To apply, please send your CV and a covering letter outlining how you meet the person specification, to Pete Thompson, HR Manager, RAF Benevolent Fund, 67 Portland Place, London W1B 1AR or email

The closing date for applications is Friday 9 December 2016. For those called forward, interviews will be held on Friday 16 December 2016.
