MSSC (Marine Society and Sea Cadets) is a friendly and focused place to work. As the parent charity for two dynamic, nautical and seafaring organisations we aim to be the leading maritime charity for youth development and lifelong learning. We are the governing body of the Sea Cadets, which gives 14,000 young people a great head start in life through nautical adventure based on the customs and traditions of the Royal Navy, and Marine Society which supports the personal and professional development of seafarers where ever they are in the world.
We are currently seeking to appoint a Development Worker to support the delivery of new Sea Cadet Units and the development of existing Units in priority areas of MSSC’s South West Area, and to ensure local delivery is achieved against key targets. Based from our Area Office at HMS Flying Fox, you will work closely with other delivery partners and with MSSC local staff, volunteers and young people to:
- Recruit and help develop new adult volunteers;
- Recruit more young people to participate in our activities;
- Provide ‘on the ground’ support to help units develop capability and capacity for the longer term

- Co-ordinate PR across South West Area units to maximise the Sea Cadets’ profile;
This is an exciting and rewarding role, partly funded by external partners of MSSC who are committed to widening young people’s opportunities to take part in challenging and developmental activities. The role presents a real opportunity to make a difference, particularly in areas of high deprivation.
Candidates will need to demonstrate experience of managing volunteers, 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.
