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.

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. ​
