Contract type: Initial Two Year Fixed Term Contract

Application Closure Date: 13 Apr 2022

Salary: Competitive

Location: Victoria, London


ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is the National Charity of the British Army. The Soldiers’ Charity began in 1944 as the Army Benevolent Fund and rebranded in 2010 to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. With help from the public, we support each and every soldier, veteran, and their immediate family who need our help, either by supporting individuals directly or through our partner delivery charities.

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity is recruiting a Head of Business Intelligence and Analysis (Hd BI&A) to help us use our data to target our activities more effectively. We are seeking an individual with a proven background in organising, sifting and interpreting information from a variety of sources and then using that analysis to drive business improvement. The successful candidate will also have sufficient technical understanding to exploit our extensive databases of supporters and to work with our IS team seeking to improve the Charity’s information management and exploitation. To be clear, though, this is a job for an analyst, not a technical specialist.

Working to the Charity’s Chief of Staff with routine and regular access to the Chief Executive, Senior Management Board and Board of Trustees, the successful candidate with operate in tandem with the Head of IS seeking opportunities to enhance the Charity’s ability to extract actionable intelligence from its extensive holdings of information. Hd BI&A will drive the broadening and deepening of our existing supporter base and identify and achieve inroads into our latent supporter base seeking always to increase support and donations.

The starting salary is £48,000 per annum with 26 (rising to 30 over time) days annual leave and travel allowance. After a probationary period of 6 months the successful candidate will benefit from the Charity’s full range of employment benefits including an income protection scheme and an employer contribution pension. There will also be opportunities to participate, as a volunteer, in key Charity events and activities.

This post would particularly suit an individual who is a self-starter, comfortable working without detailed day to day direction in a collegiate and collaborative environment.

This is a full-time post for 35 hours per week on an initial two-year fixed term contract, based at the Charity’s Head Office in Victoria, London (The Charity currently operates a three days per week in the office, two days WFH, system).

The closing date for this post will be Friday 15 April 2022 with an interview date of Tuesday 26 April 2022. Interviews will take place in Mountbarrow House, Victoria, London.
