Royal Hospital Chelsea – Deputy Head of Veterans Outreach


Are you passionate about supporting military veterans and improving their wellbeing? The Royal Hospital Chelsea is seeking a Deputy Head of Veterans Outreach to join our team

As the Deputy, you will support the Head of Veterans Outreach in establishing and delivering the RHC outreach programme within the wider military veteran community and collaborating with external veteran support programmes. You will also foster wellbeing among the wider veteran population by extending to them the comradeship of the Chelsea Pensioners and the community and experience of life at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

In this role, you will connect with individuals and organisations to help deliver our outreach offer, which aims to allow Armed Forces veterans to remain engaged with the values and ways of military life, foster friendships, and, for some, assess their potential longer-term suitability to join the RHC as an In Pensioner.

Your principal accountabilities will include the management, implementation, and development of our outreach programme.  You will collaborate with partners to produce effective veteran support programmes which will combat loneliness amongst veterans and deliver positive effects on their health and wellbeing.

To succeed in this role, you must have excellent communication and project management skills, and the ability to evaluate services and service outcomes. You must be self-motivated, a team player, and highly organized with the ability to work calmly under pressure. Additionally, you must have excellent people skills and the ability to forge strong working relationships, including those with delivery partners from other agencies and charities.

If you are passionate about supporting military veterans and improving their wellbeing, we encourage you to apply for this exciting opportunity.

The closing date for this role is 11 April and interviews are provisionally scheduled for 25 April.
