Volunteer and Business Support Manager

Volunteer & Business Support Manager (North West Area), based at North West Area Sea Cadets, RNHQ Merseyside, East Brunswick Dock, Liverpool, L3 4DZ

Marine Society and Sea Cadets (MSSC) is the governing charity of the Sea Cadet Corps (SCC), the UK’s largest maritime youth charity established in 1856. We work across the country in 400 towns with 14,000 Sea Cadets aged between 10 and 18. From dinghy sailing in Weymouth to diving in Liverpool, our centres of excellence give young people a chance to meet new friends, gain fresh skills and have a fantastic time.

We are currently seeking to appoint a Volunteer & Business Support Manager to support the volunteers who run our 58 units in our North West Area in managing and developing their capacity and capability. This will primarily be achieved through the provision of advice and support on business, compliance, finance, fundraising and promotion, recruitment and property issues.

This is a multi-faceted and challenging role which will also require the incumbent to take the lead in our North West Area in project planning and delivery, including monitoring and evaluation, risk management and working to targets and budgets.

The successful candidate is likely to have experience from a similar management position within the third sector, or will have commercial experience which is directly transferable to this role.

Regardless of background, the individual will need to be able to demonstrate the ability to work effectively with volunteers and will preferably have experience or knowledge of the youth or community sector. Candidates will also need strong interpersonal and project management skills and the ability to deal with a wide range of stakeholders. A flexible approach to work and working patterns is also a must.
