Our Unit is run entirely by volunteers. We need enthusiastic volunteers with a range of skills, from those who want to help train cadets to those who can apply their business skills to help run the Management Team that supports our Unit.

Sea Cadet volunteers:

  • – Support young people
  • – Encourage them to take part in challanging   and aspirational activities
  • – Invest in the local community as part of a widely respected charity
  • – Get a sense of personal achievement from involvement with a national youth charity
  • – Work as part of a team
  • – Meet new people, make new friends
  • – Experience adventure and learn new skills
  • – Gain valuable and externally recognised qualifications

Volunteer Posts

Volunteers can apply to join Sea Cadets at any age. Many are introduced to the charity when a son or daughter expresses an interest in joining, whilst many (but not all) instructors were previously cadets who now pass down their knowledge to a new generation.  It just depends what time you have to give.

Uniformed Volunteer - following an induction period and familiarisation, you will be issued with a Sea Cadet uniform by the MOD(Navy). Your core role will be training our cadets. Uniformed instructors are normally expected to parade at the unit on Tuesday and Friday evening, though this is open to discussion.  Weekend activities are optional.

Non-uniformed Volunteer - similar to uniformed volunteers, there is an induction and familiarisation period.  Your core role will be training our cadets.  Non-uniformed instructors are normally expected to parade at the unit at least once a week though this is open to discussion.  Weekend activities are optional.

Unit Assistant - your core role is supporting cadet activity by helping our team of instructors and the Management Team.  You will not ordinarily be involved in the training of cadets.

Charitable Trustee - as a member of the Unit Management Team, you will be a charitable trustee.  You are likely to have professional skills, such as managerial experience, or specific expertise such as knowledge of bookeeping or secretarial skills, though specific skills are not as essential as a willing, capable and enthusiastic team player.
