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 Support Executive

Location: Home-based in South East England region
Salary: Circa £30,000 per annum plus benefits

The Welfare Directorate at the RAF Benevolent Fund is responsible for understanding and meeting the social welfare needs of those in the RAF Family, from those currently serving in the RAF and their families through to veterans of all ages. This is achieved through the delivery of a wide range of services, initiatives and programmes which last year helped over 55,000 individuals.

We are seeking an individual to undertake casework in support of members of the RAF Family experiencing difficult and challenging welfare issues. This is a community based position working from home but covering an area equivalent to the UK government region of the South-East England.

Post holders will be expected to undertake assessment of need both remotely (over the telephone and online) and when required in person across their region. You will be expected to work with individuals who may have complex and sometimes challenging welfare needs, assisting them by identifying appropriate support from within both the RAF Benevolent Fund but also the wider statutory and military charity sector ensuring that support is made available to meet the need.

The successful candidate will have experience of working in a social welfare role supporting individuals and will have strong people and relationship-building skills, as well as empathy with or understanding of issues affecting the Armed Forces community. The role is home based, with travel around the region covered as well as occasional travel to London. Any successful candidate for this role will need to be DBS checked.

See the job profile for this role. To apply, please send your CV together with a covering letter, not longer than three sides, detailing which location you are interested in, why you believe you are suitable for this role and how you meet the person specification to Martin Botting, HR Business Partner, RAF Benevolent Fund, 67 Portland Place, London W1B 1AR or email HRservices@rafbf.org.uk.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 04 August 2021 at 12pm. Please note interviews will aim to take place via Video Conferencing Platform 12/13 August 2021.

Please note that due to the high number of applications expected, only candidates shortlisted for interview will be notified.

Fundraising Partnerships Executive

Term: Permanent
Salary: Circa £30,000 per annum, pro rata and competitive benefits

The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund is the leading welfare charity supporting current and former members of the RAF, their partners and families, providing practical, emotional and financial support, whenever they need us. 

This role presents a great opportunity for a candidate with strong administrative, communication and team-working skills to join the High Value Partnerships team at the RAF's leading welfare charity. The High Value Partnerships team manages the Charity’s relationships with the Trusts, Corporate Partners and Major Donor supporters who make the Fund's work today possible. The team also develops and markets new fundraising offerings as well as identifying, researching and engaging with new supporters who will help the Fund stand side-by-side with the RAF Family in years to come.

This would be an ideal role for either a candidate already working with a charity and wishing to develop their skills in an active partnerships team, or for a candidate interested in transferring their skills into the charity sector. This role is an important one in supporting activity across the team, and particularly the work of the Business Development Manager, with a focus on administrative support as well as liaising with internal and external stakeholders. In this role you will enable the team to build relationships and meet fundraising targets, allowing the charity to change the lives of beneficiaries facing hardship now and in the future.

The successful candidate will have strong administrative, IT and organisational abilities, good written and verbal communication skills and a practical approach. You will be a team player with a desire to engage with a variety of different projects and staff members to make a real difference. Experience of working in a fundraising environment, or providing support in a varied and fast-paced environment, working with CRM systems or managing stakeholder relationship is desirable.

A detailed job profile is available on the Fund's website, rafbf.org. For an informal discussion about the role please contact Daniel Jones, Business Development Manager on 0207 307 3307. The role will be office based at our HQ with the opportunity for some flexible working from home.
