Marine Society and Sea Cadets (MSSC) is a leading maritime charity in lifelong learning and personal development and is the governing charity of the Sea Cadet Corps (SCC), a civilian voluntary youth organisation engaging some 15,000 young people over 400 Sea Cadet Units, throughout the UK.  The SCC offers a wide range of youth opportunities with the same enduring objective – to give young people the best possible head start in life through nautical adventure and fun.

We are currently seeking to appoint a Regional STEM Coordinator Marine Engineering Pathway (MEP) to continue to deliver Marine Engineering workshops in schools across the South West of England and Wales in order to raise awareness and interest in Marine Engineering and Careers in Seafaring. You will also be involved in the ongoing development of the Marine Engineering Programme as part of this exciting project.

You will play a key part in making Marine Engineering training more accessible to cadets and helping them understand how the skills they develop are aligned to Royal Navy, Merchant Navy and Maritime Careers.

The successful candidate will have a strong background in working with young people, STEM, and/or education and a passion to inspire young people, particularly those who are currently under represented in the maritime sector. You will also have some experience delivering content to young people, teaching experience is desirable but not essential, and the ability to implement new and innovative training projects as part of the organisation’s strategic objectives in what is a challenging and exciting role.

The role will involve lots of travel in a charity vehicle, so a full UK driving licence is also required. This role is home based. There will be significant travel across the South West of England and some trips to the National Support Centre in London will be required.
