DMWS is an international charity that has been providing welfare support to the Armed Forces Community for over 70 years. We are also unique and remain the only military charity and civilian welfare organisation to deploy to areas of conflict to support our Armed Forces.    We are now recruiting Welfare Officers in the above locations to support the military veterans aged 65 years and over, their families and carers.

We are seeking confident self-starters who are compassionate with great inter-personal skills and whom can demonstrate a natural empathy for the Armed Forces.

In return, you will be working within a friendly and supportive environment, making a real difference and receiving great benefits.
