Duke of Edinburgh's Award Co-ordinator
Buckinghamshire County Council
Fixed Term / Secondment
Salary Range (based on full time hours): £24,731 - £26,091
Closing Date: 11/03/2015
As an Award Co-ordinator for Buckinghamshire County Council, you’ll help our young people to embark on amazing adventures and extraordinary experiences that will improve their prospects and change their outlook forever.
This is a role for an organised and creative professional who can really make things happen. Good with people and great in a team, you’ll have what it takes to oversee the delivery of DofE Awards through a network of affiliated schools and centres. You’ll support these centres and answer their queries, visiting each one regularly. We’ll expect you to co-ordinate meetings and deliver training, so you’ll need a professional approach, good customer service skills and the initiative to solve any problems.
There’ll also be the chance to work directly with young people aged 14 and up, at weekly drop-in sessions. You’ll manage these sessions and create a structured programme of fun and challenging activities. At the same time, you’ll act as a manager, working with an Expedition Advisor and overseeing a team of outdoor activity kit store workers.
To handle this varied and stimulating workload you need to be adaptable and determined. Knowledge of DofE and youth work practice is preferable, but training will be provided.
This is a fixed term or secondment opportunity for approximately 12 months from April 2015.
