About us

The RAF Association is one of the leading providers of welfare assistance to the RAF community and we exist to ensure that their sacrifice does not result in suffering, poverty, loneliness or isolation. Last year, we supported over 85,500 members of the RAF community who required practical, emotional or financial assistance.  We are there for those in need, during their darkest days, to help create a resilient, empowered and thriving RAF community.  The Association is facing increased demand for its welfare services from beneficiaries in need of unparalleled levels of support.

About the team

The Head of Casework (HOC) is a senior member of the welfare team and is responsible for the management and oversight of the case management for the Association. The HOC supports welfare staff, direct services, service coordination, education, policy and programme development and community relations. This is a great opportunity for a passionate individual who has the desire to use their health or social Care experience for a wider social purpose and as a result you will gain immense job satisfaction from seeing these worthwhile activities reach those who really need it as well as being part of a collaborative values led organisation.

This is a key role within the charity. The HOC will be highly visible and will have the opportunity to make an extremely positive impact on the RAF Association. Thus suitable candidates will not only have detailed knowledge and experience of current community care and other legislation within the field of social care, they will also have a demonstrable track record of working in a sensitive fast paced, dynamic organisation. This is a progressive environment that values a proactive approach to problem solving and continuous improvement and should appeal to candidates whose values are aligned with the core mission of the RAF Association

You will have evidence of being an experienced leader and manager who is highly competent with IT and Database skills.
