A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a part-time Branch Secretary in the Inverness & Western Isles Branch at SSAFA, the UK’s oldest national tri-service military charity.

About the role:
Reporting to the Branch Chairman you will have functional responsibility to members of the Branch Management Committee and SSAFA Central Office for the day-to-day management of activities within the Inverness & Western Isles Branch. Principal tasks are casework allocation to Divisional Secretaries, general office administration and ensuring that casework is delivered consistently and appropriately across the branch, but other key responsibilities include recruitment, training, and development of Volunteers. Administrative assistance will be required periodically with sub-committees, including; Fundraising, Public Relations and Awareness as well as event management and the organisation of the branch AGM.

Whilst a military service or background is not a pre-requisite, it is vital that you can demonstrate an understanding of the particular challenges faced by Veterans and those in the Regular and Reserve Forces together with their families in times of need. You will have demonstrable administration skills, be a sound communicator, capable of multi-tasking and have an eye for detail. The need for fairness and flexibility is also vital when leading and encouraging a largely volunteer workforce. With over 90 other Branches in the United Kingdom and abroad this appointment represents the sharp end of delivering SSAFA’s aims efficiently and effectively.
SSAFA is an employer that values the diversity of its workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
