  • Are you aged between 13 and 25 years old?
  • Are you passionate about working with other young people and leading them?
  • Are you able to help run our cadet unit one evening a week from 7pm to 9:30pm
  • Are you up for a challenge and want to help us make a real difference?
  • Are you looking to help volunteer for a great cause?

We are a NEW start-up uniformed youth development organisation looking to make a difference in the lives of young people aged 13 to 25 years old across England (starting in London and then growing outwards). Our mission is to prepare young people for life, by giving them new opportunities and experiences to learn and discover themselves and the world around them, while boosting their confidence, skills for life and resilience.

Cadets meet up at weekly unit cadet meet ups which take place one night per week usually held between 7pm and 9pm in which Cadets (young people) take part in fun, challenging and rewarding activities that are aimed to boost confidence and self-esteem and grow skills and gain different opportunities and experiences. Cadets also get to complete missions, challenges, and activities to earn badges for their uniform, gain accreditations in a wide range of topics and feel a sense of belonging and achievement. We aim to ensure young people are “Prepared for Life”.

As well as attending weekly cadet meet ups, Cadets take part in weekend public duties supporting their local community at events and local fates, as well as attending camps, residentials, trips and other youth development activities aimed to build positive futures for young people.

We are opening our first cadet units in London and are seeking young people aged 13 to 25 years old to volunteer and lead other cadets and assist in running and managing their weekly cadet unit.

At Ranger Cadets we are about giving young people access to new opportunities and experiences, while giving them the tools and skills to prepare them for life.

As well as the youthwork side you will need to manage the weekly cadet unit activities, including organising other youth development activities and public duties at local events, keeping and maintaining unit records and actively participating in the recruitment, training, management and retention of the young people (cadets) and adult volunteers in your unit. You will ensure that they all have a positive and rewarding experience while at Ranger Cadets, by equipping them with the necessary skills and tools to fulfil our vision.

We are currently looking to fill the following NCO (Youth Leadership) roles:

  1. Sergeants (Must be aged between 16 to 25)
  2. Corporals (Must be aged between 14 to 25)
  3. Senior Cadets (Must be aged between 13 to 25)

All these roles require approx. 4 or 5 hours per week (includes unit meetings on the same evening each week from 7pm to 9:30pm at the unit and the extra 1.5 / 2 hours are for meetings, planning and organising weekly cadet units, paperwork and area and organisational based activities as and when required).

If you have NCO experience and currently or previously hold an NCO Rank from another Cadet organisation then we may be willing to transfer that to Ranger Cadets with evidence, interview and induction training at the discrection of the Chief Ranger.

The successful candidates will attend unit meetings the same evening each week from 7pm to 9:30pm, where you will engage with local young people taking part in the cadet programme.

We want to hear from you if you are:

  • Reliable, Punctual and Trustworthy.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills.
  • Ability to plan, organise and deliver activities for cadets (young people).
  • Ability to manage a one night a week cadet meet-up’s and ensure that paperwork and standards are being fully met.
