Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Gentleman and Ladies, Im making inroads to hopefully work with SSAFA as a caseworker. Anyone out there already doing it who would like to share some experiences or pass any knowledge or information onto me. Im in Glasgow UK. Thanks in advance.

    I'm a Div Sec. What do you want to know?
  3. Hi Oldbaldy and thanks for saying hello. Im just looking to hear from anyone that is a case worker and to give me a quick run down on what is involved. To date Ive read the web site and the lit that ann sent me. apart from caseworker what other vol work can I do? Sounds fine in the info leaflets. Im ex REME Full Screw 12 years and my current job should stand me in good stead.

    Thanks in advance

    Well done for having a look.
    What you did & what rank whilst serving is irrelevant. I have as caseworkers under my 'control' who include everyone from a retired full Colonel & a Commander RN to ex National Service Private. It is the aptitude that counts. Not everyone can do it, no harm to those who can't, it is a personal thing.
    Jobs other than casework, there are a whole host of things: management, finance, admin, fundraising, publicity etc.
    I would suggest you give the Glasgow office a ring: 0141 221 7251. Hours are mon- fri 0900 - 1230 & 1330 - 1630.
    Being in a large urban area they have a dedicated office in Washington Street. Me out in the sticks work from my study at home!

    correcting my spelling
  5. Thaks for that, Im off tommorow so Ill give them a call whilst waiting for more info from Ann. Im willing to give it a bash so thats a good start.
