The Royal British Legion is at the heart of a national network that supports our Armed Forces community through thick and thin – ensuring their unique contribution is never forgotten. Although best known for our Remembrance work and the iconic red poppy symbol, the Legion is also the largest welfare provider in the military charity sector, providing practical care, advice and assistance to serving personnel, veterans and their families. We have a long and proud campaigning history, having sought to further the interests, rights and welfare of the Armed Forces community since 1921, and we work tirelessly to safeguard the Armed Forces Covenant, which ensures that those who serve, have served and their families are not left disadvantaged by the unique nature of military life.
The Legion is seeking an enthusiastic and committed policy and research professional to join its successful Public Affairs and Public Policy team, in an exciting new role leading our research into social isolation and the Armed Forces community.
