You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, strong networking capabilities and a proven ability to lead and deliver change.
Ideally, you will also have experience in communications, marketing (including digital) and brand management and share an understanding and appreciation of the RAF and the military charity sector and its vital impact.
