Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a flexible and enthusiastic candidate who, ideally, has previous experience of working with volunteers.  You will need to be able to deliver on a variety of project plans simultaneously, while also being able to build and maintain excellent relationships with a variety of stakeholders. We are looking for team players with creative ideas and solutions who will empower our volunteers to make a difference to the lives of even more young people across the UK. 

What is the role? 

The Growth and Development team is based across the UK and works on a variety of projects that aim to grow the Sea Cadets. These projects include setting up new Juniors Sections, supporting Sea Cadet units in schools and helping existing Sea Cadet units to develop plans and strategies for sustainable growth.

Typical tasks include:

  •          Delivering a variety of training sessions on, for example, recruitment of cadets and volunteers
  •          Developing new growth and recruitment tools and ideas
  •          Promoting flexible volunteering and the volunteer strategy
  •          Assisting with running our social media accounts

  •          Planning and setting up Juniors Sections in new and existing locations/units
  •          Delivering assemblies in schools
  •          Forming part of various working groups with colleagues to develop the tools, resources and processes needed to increase the positive impact of the Growth and Development team.

This is a very varied and rewarding role that requires someone who is self-motivated, organised, creative, tenacious, positive, IT competent and with a real interest in people. You need to be able to coach, empower and inspire our volunteers and cadets, both in person (once safe to do so) and remotely, to grow the Sea Cadets.  

Applications should consist of a CV and supporting statement. Without this, we sadly will be unable to consider your application for this role. A recruitment pack can be downloaded below detailing more information on the role.
