Kitchen Assistants

Across the country, in every city and on every street, the Legion is there to support our Armed Forces community. As the largest charity of our kind, we have 235,000 members, 60,000 volunteers and a network of partners all helping us give support wherever and whenever it’s needed.

And our Care, Nursing and Recovery teams are there when people need us most. Supporting this community throughout the nation with understanding and compassion.

As part of this team, you’d be providing dedicated care homes for older veterans, helping those living with dementia, supporting carers, or ensuring ex-service personnel and their families can live safely at home.

As well as being there with practical, hands-on support, you’d also offer advice and guidance. Whether that’s to help people with a particular need, or more simply to ensure that they are making the very most of the care, programmes and services we can provide.

It’s this mission, this scale, this challenge and the values we all live by, that makes the Legion such a fulfilling place to thrive.

If you want to give your days meaning. To put your passion into a role with real impact. To support people and be supported yourself. In an inclusive team that faces every challenge together.
