The Women’s Royal Army Corps Association and Cobseo’s Female Veterans Cluster are seeking a Communication and Engagement Officer to support an exciting, transformational project to support female veterans of the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force

Collaborating across government, statutory, charity, and commercial organisations, the project will innovate within the sector, design sustainable provisions and translate research into action.
