Transition Liaison Post

Transition Liaison Post

Working in partnership with the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) and the Army and RAF Families Federations we are pleased to have the opportunity to offer a new role. The post holder will carry out a research project to help us better understand issues facing families transitioning out of the Naval Service and the support available to them.

The vacancy is for a part time position located in Portsmouth (70% of all Naval personnel transition through Portsmouth) with flexible hours (20 per week) on a 2 year fixed term contract.

The applicant will possess a good knowledge of the Naval Service and ideally have experience of the resettlement process. As the project will run as a separate work-strand within the NFF team the post holder will be self-starting and able to manage deadlines, taking the project from inception to conclusion.  The role will require strong inter-personal skills to initiate communication with families and relevant stakeholders.  A thorough approach to research and the ability to prepare reports will be essential.

We are looking for someone who will become a subject matter expert on transition issues, particularly the family considerations at the transition point, and is motivated to make it a positive experience for families. The research from this project will inform future policy.  If you fit the description and have an enthusiastic approach we would love you to put your application forward.

2 year fixed term contract- £15k per annum.

Applications close at midnight on 29th August 2016

Interviews for the vacancy will be held in Portsmouth on 5th September 2016.
