RAF Benevolent Fund – Regional Coordinator

Permanent, Full Time

Circa. £30,000 per year depending on experience, plus competitive benefits

Do you want to make a difference?

The RAF Benevolent Fund is the leading welfare charity for the RAF and last year we assisted over 40,000 Serving personnel, veterans and their families who benefited from our services. Working at the Fund is more than sitting at your desk and involves a mixture of office-based activities as well as supporting events and people in the South of England and sometimes beyond. In this role you will have the opportunity to be part of our RAF Family and every day you will make a difference, playing your part in positively changing the lives of others, and helping people in the RAF Family get through the toughest of times.

Do you want to play a part in what we do?

People are at the heart of what we do. Together we:

  • Help reduce social isolation and loneliness among veterans.
  • We support ill or injured men and women to have a safe place to call home, a home that meets their specific needs.
  • We fund youth services on stations to provide clubs and activities for the children of serving personnel who move every few years.
  • We provide grants to help with the cost of living. But this is just a few of the ways we help.

Working at the Fund means you can play your part in changing the lives of people who serve or have served in the RAF and supporting them to face life’s challenges.

It doesn’t matter how long someone served or when. If they were part of the RAF, they and their family are part of our RAF Family. We will always be here to support them when they need it most.

Join The RAF Family and play your part in making a difference.
