Army Families Federation – Co-ordinator


About the role

AFF is currently seeking a Co-ordinator for the Western Sovereign Base Area (WSBA) region (including but not limited to Akrotiri and Episkopi).

AFF Co-ordinators cover specific geographical regions. Co-ordinators assist Service families with enquiries and concerns, helping families access the right services and support. The role involves representing the families’ viewpoint to the chain of command and local authorities and attendance at meetings within the area.

The role is community- and home-based, reaching families and other contacts through visits to stations within the area and via e-mail, phone and our social media team.

The post is part-time with flexible hours (12.5 per week) and paid on an hourly basis.

What we’re looking for

Although AFF Co-ordinators are closely supported by their line manager and the whole organisation, they need to be self-starters who are willing to take the initiative to make contacts in their area, be the AFF point of contact for families and be motivated in achieving the best outcomes for their community.

The successful candidate will also need to demonstrate good communication and listening skills, and a strong interest in helping Army families.

A full list of the skills and experience we are looking for can be found in the Job Description.

Applicants should live within the Co-ordinator area of cover.

AFF welcomes applications from all sections of the community.

Please note: in Cyprus, applicants must have UKD (UK Dependant) status and a Dependant Status stamp.

For further information, please visit the AFF website.

Closing, interview and start dates

  • Applications should be submitted by 5pm, Wednesday 26th September.
  • Shortlisted candidates will be notified via e-mail by Wednesday 3rd October.
  • Interviews will take place on Tuesday 16th October in Episkopi.
  • The start date for this post is the beginning of November (we may be able to flex slightly on the start date).
