We are a financially sustainable £7million charity which aims to provide camaraderie, benevolence and  support to women who have served in the Army. Additionally, we aim to exert influence within the military charity sector to broaden support for female veterans particularly through our Female Veterans Transformation Programme.

Established in 1919, our benevolence fund helps female veterans who need financial support, working closely with The Royal British Legion (RBL) and the Soldiers’, Sailors’ and Airmen’s Families Association (SSAFA). Last year we awarded grants totalling over £260,000 to 230 female veterans, making a real  difference to their lives.

We organise both national and local events for our members to attend where they meet up with old friends, remember those we have lost, support each other, have a lot of fun and make new and lasting  memories. We have over 3000 active members which we hope to grow as we reach out to the many female veterans eligible to join our Association but currently unconnected to us.

We are now looking to recruit a Communication and Engagement Officer to lead the development and delivery of our internal and external communications.

You will have expertise in delivering communications or marketing projects which can be appropriately tailored to increase engagement and promote awareness of the Associations’ work.

You will have expertise of modern publishing technology and will have overall responsibility for the Association magazine – The Lioness – published biannually.

You will have experience of all mainstream social media platforms and website publishing as you will have overall responsibility for our website and all social media activity, which you will work to increase.

You will understand the value of strong communication and be experienced in engaging people from many walks of life and tailoring your communication style to a variety of audiences.

You will be required to build positive working relationships with key stakeholders, both within and external to the Association, including our members, Area Co-ordinators, media, publishers and with other veteran-facing organisations.

You will also be highly organised with great attention to detail.
