Recruitment Coordinator

Could you help your local SSAFA branch recruit volunteers in your area? You don’t need a military background, just some good I.T and admin skills, the ability to get on with a wide range of people and good written and spoken English.

There are SSAFA branches throughout the UK and overseas. Our Recruitment Coordinators help us find local people interested in supporting SSAFA and take them through our recruitment and selection process. Why do we need you? We’ve been supporting the Armed Forces community for more than 130 years. Our clients come from all backgrounds and age groups and may have served in WW2 or in more recent conflicts such as the Falklands or Afghanistan. To offer the best possible service to our clients we need to match the right volunteers to the right role. We’d love to hear from you if think you could help with this important role.
