Housing Executive

Location: London
Salary: Circa £39,000 plus benefits

The RAF Benevolent Fund is the RAF's leading welfare charity and facilitates the provision of help and support for ex-RAF personnel and their eligible dependants who are in need of assistance. Part of that is providing help to maintain the homes of our beneficiaries through grants and loans for essential repairs and adaptations. Additionally, the Fund provides bespoke housing to support those exiting the RAF with significant disabilities through our Housing Trust.

We are seeking a compassionate and highly organised individual to join the Housing team which delivers housing solutions as part of our overall support for the RAF Family. Working within a team of welfare executives, you will have responsibility for identifying the needs of beneficiaries, delivering appropriate assistance within delegated spending authority and presenting higher value applications to the Grants Committees of the Fund. In addition to an ability to handle welfare casework, the Housing Executive is involved in the administration of the Fund's loans and the management of a portfolio of Housing Trust properties, which requires working with beneficiaries, solicitors, surveyors, and occupational therapists to ensure that our loans and properties are well maintained.

The successful candidate will need to have relevant welfare experience and preferably some experience of property management, although relevant training will be provided. An articulate communicator with IT skills suited to working in a paperless environment, you must be able to demonstrate an ability to relate to people of all ages, especially vulnerable beneficiaries, in a manner which is conducive to relieving stresses and concerns through holistic consideration and delivery of welfare solutions.
