We are working in partnership with the RAF Benevolent Fund on an exciting opportunity for an experienced leader and proven manager to join as the next Head of Housing and Assurance. The Fund’s vision is that no member of the RAF Family will ever face adversity alone.  This applies right across the Spectrum of Care, from young to old, seeking to meet their needs as best we can.  The RAF Family (c1.4 million people) supports those who are currently serving through to retired veterans and their partners/widows/widowers, the latter group comprising c75% of the whole Family.  Enabling this work is a key feature of the role.

The Fund is currently celebrating its centenary and the Board is determined to support as many as possible within the RAF Family, recognising that many are facing age related challenges. Working alongside other Welfare Heads of Department (HoDs), the occupant will drive forward our support for those with housing needs, both inside our unique Housing Trust of more than 210 UK-wide properties, and more generally enabling people to live longer at home. 

The successful applicant will also be the lead Welfare HoD for Stakeholder Engagement.  You will have the skills to strengthen the Directorate’s assurance activities, overseeing delivery and compliance, including safeguarding and data protection.  You will also play a key role in supporting the Fund Ambassadors and developing our benchmarking capability, playing a key role in the Welfare Management Team and across the Fund.  

Prospective candidates are strongly encouraged to review the Fund’s website and published research – Meeting the Needs of the RAF Family - and the 2019 Annual Review.

To apply please submit your CV and supporting statement as soon as possible to info@charismarecruitment.co.uk quoting our reference JO1714.
