About us

The RAF (Royal Air Force) Association has a clear objective: to help sustain a resilient and empowered RAF community, including serving personnel, RAF veterans and their families. Through our sector leading services, we offer friendship to the isolated and lonely, sheltered housing for those who want to remain proudly independent and childcare to serving personnel on RAF stations. We work closely with partner organisations, including other military charities, and have a strong bond with our donors and supporters, giving us the confidence to deliver for our beneficiaries when they need us.

With thousands of members across the UK and further afield, plus hundreds of dedicated employees and volunteers, we have the network and experience needed for a personal one-to-one approach. We work together to make sure no one is ever left behind.

About the role

This is a key role within the Services Marketing team and the post holder is responsible for the planning and execution of welfare and wellbeing marketing to maximise the profile of the RAF Association, recruit welfare volunteers, encourage new service-users, and increase the uptake of our welfare services. Working closely with the Insight Team, you will use an evidence based and data driven approach to create, project manage and deliver impactful marketing campaigns. You will work closely with marketing colleagues, as well as stakeholders in our welfare and wellbeing teams. You will also act as the key point of contact for key agencies and suppliers.

Whilst no two days will be the same, you will be part of delivering something really special and feel the rewards of seeing the charity impact the lives of those who really need it.
