Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity – Transition Support Co-ordinator


RNRMC is looking to recruit a Transition Support Co-ordinator, based in Portsmouth to join its
Transition Support team.

RNRMC, with our many partners, strives to provide assistance to serving and former sailors and marines and their families, with the aim of ensuring they feel valued and supported, throughout their lives. We support the serving community through improvements to working environments, efficiency, morale, welfare, sport and adventurous training, and veterans and families through a wide range of services and partnerships. We collaborate across the military sector and wider, ensuring our funds deliver the outcomes our beneficiaries need.

The Board of Trustees have agreed an exciting, new direction for the Charity as part of its recent strategy review. This is the first strand to develop a stronger beneficiary advocacy role and will provide the evidence to create a proactive and holistic suite of support provision to the whole Naval Family. The role holder will be the key member of the Transition Support team, reporting to the Transition Support Case Manager who is based Portsmouth. The role will focus on providing advice, information and guidance to those who may be considered vulnerable as they leave the Service, as well as their families, to achieve a successful transition from service life and into the wider civilian world, regardless of their needs or reason for leaving.

The successful applicant will be at working at the heart of this new initiative, acting as the first point of contact and triage co-ordinator for the Transition Support Service. They will play a key role in the delivery of support to vulnerable Service leavers and their families. This unique role offers the opportunity to develop assessment and casework skills by working as a locum for Transition Support Guides when necessary. Specific training will be provided to enhance the role holder’s skill set to suit the breadth and level of guidance we are aiming to deliver. They will gain an in-depth knowledge of the
military charity sector, voluntary sector, and statutory services, holding responsibility for project research and data collection. They will play a pivotal role in maintaining contact with key partners within the Royal Navy, MoD and partner organisations while promoting the Transition Support Service, and the wider offer of the RNRMC to vulnerable Service leavers, veterans, and their families.

It is essential that you have the ability to work in a highly person-centred way with a genuine interest in supporting people to problem solve and achieve personal goals. We aim to recruit someone with lived experience as a Service leaver; the direct family member of a Service leaver; or person currently serving. In addition, you must be excited by the prospect of bringing new ideas and experiences to the table in a fast-growing and dynamic organisation, and be able to positively contribute to developing and delivering a first-class Transition Support Service.

The successful applicant will have a highly attuned aptitude for verbal communication with excellent listening skills. They will have a strong empathy for the Navy Family and the values of RNRMC, and be keen to expand their experience to guide those who are at their most vulnerable when leaving the Service.

You will be based in the Portsmouth at the RNRMC office on HMS Excellent. This role will attract a starting salary of £28-£30k, depending on experience, and will include an excellent benefit package.
