About the job


Sutton Sea Cadets, a registered charity, and youth organisation is seeking a Treasurer to join our Unit Management Team, (UMT), as a Trustee, to collectively, provide support to the running of the Unit.

What will you be doing?

Sutton Sea Cadets, based in Beddington Park, Wallington, is a youth organisation (registered charity) with the aim to give young people an experience that will help them grow into the person they want to be in a safe and friendly environment. Through various activities and adventures, they learn teamwork, respect, loyalty, self-confidence, commitment, self-discipline, honesty and how to be the best version of themselves.

To help us achieve our aim we are looking for a Treasurer to join our Unit Management Team, (UMT) who, collectively, provide support to the running of the Unit.

This is a voluntary role and an ideal opportunity for someone, whether retired, and looking for a new activity, or working with some spare time, and who is keen to work in the community.

The Unit Treasurer maintains financial control, produces, and manages the Unit accounts, prepares annual budgets, supports financial input to our fundraising campaigns, and provides financial advice to the UMT. This is mainly a home-based role with the UMT meeting once per month plus ad hoc meetings and activities as required. Access to a Laptop/PC is a requirement of the role.

What are we looking for?

As well as the skills and experience needed to be a Treasurer, we are looking for someone who simply likes the sound of being a Trustee and working with a small group (7) of volunteers to help manage our Sea Cadet Unit. Willing to play a full role, contributing to our plans and future strategy, supporting our fundraising campaigns with financial support and advice. Very much a team player but also working closely with the Unit Chair on such matters as financial policy & procedures. Equally, a good working relationship will be needed with each of the team members, made up of Marketing & Comms, Fundraising, Facilities and Secretary as well as the Commanding Officer (head of the uniformed staff).

What difference will you make?

As stated, Sutton Sea Cadets is a youth organisation with the aim to give young people an experience that will help them grow into the person they want to be in a safe and friendly environment. Through various activities and adventures, they learn teamwork, respect, loyalty, self-confidence, commitment, self-discipline, honesty and how to be the best version of themselves.

To achieve this, we must provide a safe environment, a financially viable unit, provision of equipment and a forward thinking strategy. The role of Treasurer is pivotal to all this being achieved.

This is a voluntary role and an ideal opportunity for someone, whether retired, and looking for a new activity, or working with some spare time, and who is keen to work in the community.

What’s in it for the volunteer?

As for everyone, we were in lockdown for some 18 months, only re-opening in May 2020. Since we ‘returned to parading’ we have seen a significant increase in the number of young people who want to be a Sea Cadet. Re-opening after an 18 month closure, with so many new Cadets (9 – 18 yrs of age), has been challenging and requiring a great deal of input and effort from all our volunteers, both Uniformed Staff and the UMT (Unit Management Team). It has been a successful 7 months, which has come about by careful management, but above all, team work. Going forward, we are about to embark on a new 2-3 year strategy which everyone is very excited about.
