RAFBF – Fundraising & Communications Trustee / Trustee with Charity experience / Finance Trustee


The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund provides support to members of the RAF Family (both serving and retired, and their dependants) who are in need. The range of support that the Fund offers is holistic and person-centred, with the primary aim of reducing or removing any adversity that is being experienced.

Against the backdrop of a Fund strategy that will need to evolve in response to the significant challenges of the external environment, the Board is keen to recruit three additional trustees to join the Board:

  • A trustee with significant experience as a trustee or senior executive in the charity sphere who has been responsible for leading or overseeing strategic change within this environment (a background in welfare delivery or social care would be particularly advantageous) to join our Board. See the job profile for this role here.
  • A trustee with fundraising experience (such as having held a director level fundraising position in a national charity) to join our Board and our Fundraising & Communications Committee. See the job profile for this role here.
  • A trustee with a Finance Background (preferably a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of England and Wales with a good understanding of the regulatory and statutory requirements of financial reporting) to join our Board and our Finance Committee and become a trustee / member of the Board of Directors of two of the Fund’s subsidiary entities (the RAF Benevolent Fund Housing Trust Ltd and the RAF Benevolent Fund Trustees Ltd). See the job profile for this role here.

For an informal discussion about the role please contact Paul Higgins, Chief of Staff on 020 7307 3369.

To apply, please send your CV together with a covering letter detailing why you believe you are suitable for this role and providing examples of how you meet the person specification to Rachel Kramer, RAF Benevolent Fund, 67 Portland Place, London W1B 1AR or email Rachel.kramer@rafbf.org.uk.

The closing date for applications is midday on Monday 5 April 2021. Interviews will take place as soon as possible thereafter (most likely virtually via a video conferencing platform).

Due to the high number of applications expected, only those longlisted will be notified.

Please note that the successful candidate will be required to have a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
