AFF – Chief Executive


Package: circa £70,000
Location: Europe – London and Andover, UK. Also some home-based, with travel
Deadline: 18 September 2020

Army Families Federation (AFF) is extremely proud to be a valued and trusted partner of choice for the Army, working with the Chain of Command and policy makers, to identify and solve practical problems for anyone with a soldier in their life.

We work hard to improve the quality of life for army families around the world – on any aspect that is affected by the Army lifestyle. Our reach spans support with issues such as housing, education and health provision, through to new initiatives like Forces Family Jobs and delivering research-informed campaigns and practice to inform policy changes.

Our new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will develop and implement our future strategy, while developing our team and maintaining strong relationships with our funders and stakeholders within the Army Chain of Command, government, media and charity partners.

Candidates must demonstrate the ability to build and operationalise strategy, to build connectivity with funders and policy makers and to empower a team to successfully deliver. The ideal candidate will be a shrewd political operator, strong on organisational development and potentially with previous exposure to the Army or Armed Forces, although this is not essential.

The closing date for applications is midday (UK time) on Friday 18 September 2020.
