Working for GL RFCA
GL RFCA is run by a staff of 26 people based in its beautiful Georgian offices a stone’s throw from Putney Bridge tube station. The staff of GL RFCA are Crown Servants headed up by ex-Regular officers. The organisation is also responsible for 32 staff who work directly supporting 14,000 Cadets in four London sectors.
We employ specialists in estate management, working with young people, employer and community engagement, commercial lettings, communications, and administrative support. As a small, diverse team we have plenty of opportunity to support colleagues working outside our area of expertise with the opportunity to learn new skills.
We also get to work with and for thousands of London's brilliant Reservists and fantastic Cadets.
The Head of Communications will devise and implement multi-channel communications, to both internal and external audiences, in support of GL RFCA objectives.. You’ll work closely with colleagues in the Engagement, Estates and Youth & Cadets departments of GL RFCA as well as with 23 Reserve units and 250 Cadet detachments.
You will create, gather and distribute content across digital, broadcast and print media with the help of a budget that you’ll manage to provide the resources needed. That might mean spending a day with Reserves preparing to deploy overseas, accompanying guest on a visit to a Royal Naval Warship or observing RAF Medics training.
While existing knowledge of the Armed Forces will help, the most important part of the role is the ability to translate military jargon into interesting stories that are comprehensible to a civilian audience.
In return, you'll receive a salary of £35,387 including London Weighting, 25 days annual leave rising to 30 days and membership of the RFCA pension scheme.
