About the role

AFF is currently seeking a Co-ordinator for the Wales area (including but not limited to Brecon, Chepstow, Hereford, St Athan, occasional visits to Haverfordwest and Bristol).

AFF Co-ordinators in the UK cover specific geographical regions. Co-ordinators assist Service families with enquiries and concerns, helping families access the right services and support. The role involves representing the families’ viewpoint to the chain of command and local authorities and attendance at meetings within the area.

The role is community- and home-based, to reaching families and other contacts through visits to stations within the area and via email, phone and Facebook contact via the online team.

The post is part-time with flexible hours (20 hrs per week) and paid on an hourly basis.

What we’re looking for

Although AFF Co-ordinators are closely supported by their line manager and the whole organisation, they need to be self-starters who are willing to take the initiative to make contacts in their area, be the AFF point of contact for families and be motivated in achieving the best outcomes for their community.

The successful candidate will also need to demonstrate good communication and listening skills, and a strong interest in helping Army families.

Applicants should live within the Co-ordinator area of cover (due to the significant distance from all other stations, we cannot accept applications from Haverfordwest). A home station will be agreed with the successful candidate, for purposes of paying travel time and costs).

AFF welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
