Treasurer and Trustees for Bournemouth Sea Cadets

Location: Bournemouth

Date Posted: 02/05/2019

Closing Date: 31/07/2019

Job Description

Bournemouth Sea Cadets is a charity which has provided life-changing opportunities for young people for 55 years.  We are looking for volunteers to join us to help continue to deliver a unique experience for young people in our area.  

What will you be doing?

Each Sea Cadet Corps (SCC) unit is an independent charity in its own right which must fundraise for its running costs while the parent charity of MSSC (Marine Society & Sea Cadets) funds the charitable infrastructure and provides national facilities. Our biggest supporter is the Royal Navy whose customs and traditions are at the heart of what we do.

Sea Cadet units are managed and run by committed volunteers.  The unit management team (UMT) are volunteers and act as the unit’s trustees, headed up by a unit chairperson, secretary and treasurer. The UMT is responsible for the running of the unit at a strategic and management level and we are looking to recruit a dynamic volunteers to support the unit organisation and management.

The role of a UMT trustee is to collectively with your fellow UMT trustees, to:

– Ensure that all the unit’s activities and matters are conducted legally and comply with charity regulations and MSSC policies and procedures.

– Ensure the general welfare, safety and protection of volunteers and cadets when they are involved in unit matters or activities.

– Provide a properly maintained, serviced, safe and secure unit premises.

– To identify unit priorities and potential issues and maintain plans to address those issues.

– Raise funds to pay for the running costs incurred by the unit.

– Raise funds to provide the resources necessary for efficient and successful training in the unit and other projects as they arise.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for volunteers with a practical management skills as well as an understanding of relevant governance and compliance.  The unit building operates as a Sea Cadet training ship but also as a local community centre, so we are interested in hearing from anyone with these following characteristics:

  • Experience of volunteer and charity management is desirable
  • Experience or understanding of Charity Commission requirements
  • Enthusiastic and committed
  • Willing to learn about our mission and values
  • Able to manage time and delegate tasks
  • Able to work as part of a team
  • Ability to communicate with people from all walks of life at all levels, as effective communication with other key stakeholders including SCC personnel, other facility users and charity groups will be important

What difference will you make?

The UMT is key in our being able to offer a wide range of activities for our adult instructional volunteers and cadets from sailing, canoeing, kayaking, power boating, to flying, cookery and much, much more. We aim to encourage good citizenship and provide valuable, nationally recognised qualifications and adventure for young people aged 10-18 years.
Our core values that we look for in our Cadets, Volunteers and Staff are:
•  Loyalty
•  Respect
•  Honesty and Integrity
•  Commitment
•  Self-discipline
Your contribution will not only support the Sea Cadets and Royal Marine Cadet mission but will support other local community groups, pre-school and charities to continue to deliver services to those who need to benefit from them.

What’s in it for the volunteer?

Volunteering with the SCC will enable you to work with young people and get involved with a diverse set of interesting projects.  The unit takes part in high-profile events including providing the Royal Navy and local business with support during the Bournemouth Air Show.

Volunteers can also take courses through the corps via the community volunteer service. These include opportunities to enhance understanding and skills to deliver as a trustee role. UMT members also have a chance to crew the Sea Cadet training brig, TS Royalist.  Above all, you will leave a lasting legacy for future generations of cadets and other young people.

A few more details

We understand the responsibilities people have outside volunteering. That is why all our roles are flexible and can be adapted to ensure any individual who is willing to give their time can be included. Where necessary, it may also be possible to share a role to spread the commitment.

Each Sea Cadet unit must comply with all policies and procedures issued for the governance of Sea Cadets by, or on behalf of, the MSSC Council and the Ministry of Defence (MOD). The MOD underwrites the Sea Cadet training liability.

Before you apply

Following successful interview and selection all volunteers are expected to complete the SCC application procedure, have a DBS completed and some online courses covering safeguarding, health & Safety and data protection. Trustees will also have to complete a one-day SCC induction course.
