Nicola Cook, Assistant Director of Operations for The Royal British Legion, said:

“Coronavirus has impacted every part of our society. As we respond and react to these challenging times our ability to provide care and support for the elderly and most vulnerable within our community, including our veteran population, is our highest priority.

“Never have the support and services provided by the care sector been more important, therefore we are taking action to ensure we can continue providing critical support to those who are most at risk. The Legion is in need of increased numbers of staff to ensure we are well equipped to withstand the challenges resulting from Coronavirus, including large scale staff absences due to self-isolation or sickness.

“We are asking anyone who is experienced in any of these fields and is interested in one of these jobs to contact us to find out more.”

Permanent and fixed term contracts are available with options of full and part time roles, day and night shifts, and weekend work.
