Youth Leader - Stamford Cadet Unit

No one should die because they needed first aid and didn’t get it. St John Ambulance teaches people first aid so they can be the difference between life and death, and you can help us do this.

As a volunteer working with young people you will help the SJA youth mission by providing children and young people with developmental opportunities to help them achieve their full potential. This is done with an emphasis on being led by the views and aspirations of our young volunteers and with a commitment to equality of opportunity for every young person who wishes to get involved.

This is the opportunity to set up a new unit in Stamford, as part of an All Services Unit for our next generation of life savers. Cadets are aged 11 to 18 years and enjoy a full and varied programme of fun and learning opportunities. The Youth Leader (Cadets) will be supported by an Area Manager and a team of youth leaders/helpers and will also have the support of the Adult Unit Management teams. The post will suit somebody who has drive, enthusiasm and lots of energy and wants to see young people enjoy and develop. The meeting night and time is by negotiation with the Area Manager.

Youth Leaders and Youth Support Leaders volunteer to deliver an inclusive and accessible Youth programme, within SJA youth policies, procedures and guidelines, which meet the aspirations and needs of young people and requirements of the programme. They work in partnership with the Unit Manager, Youth Helpers and Young Leaders.

This role is exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitations Offenders Act and as such as Enchanced DBS check will be obtained.

For more information please contact Area Manager, Anthony Kitchener,

The closing date for this post is 9 March 2018 and interviews will be week commencing 30 March 2018.
