Become a Cadet Force Adult Volunteer

The Cadet Forces need adults to volunteer with the enthusiasm to motivate and train cadets and the desire to have a positive input into their futures. Being a Cadet Instructor is a great opportunity to be part of a prestigious and popular youth organisation, which takes great pride in offering young people opportunities that may not otherwise be available to them.

St Helens Borough Council's Commitment to Cadet Forces Adult Volunteer Employees

St Helens Borough Council is proud to be an employer of staff who are Cadet Forces Adult Volunteers. We offer two weeks additional pay to our Cadet Forces Adult Volunteer employees to support their annual training commitments. We would encourage all employers to be proactive in providing whatever support they can to recruit and retain Cadet Forces Adult Volunteers. Please take a look at our Armed Forces and Reservist Employment Policy to see some examples of the possible support your organisation could provide.

Free Employer support available through the Defence Employer Engagement Team

As an employer the Council has benefited greatly from the free support, guidance, and advise available through the North West Defence Employer Engagement Team. We have worked closely with Jan Cox, the Regional Employer Engagement Director (REED) for Merseyside, Cheshire and the Isle of Man, who has supported us on our journey to become a Gold Employer under Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS).  Being part of the ERS enables us to meet with like minded employers across the North West to learn, share, and develop good Reservist and Armed Forces employment practices. If would like to find out more about how your organisation could support Reservists and other Armed Forces employees please contact Simon Cousins, our Armed Forces Covenant Support Officer - simoncousins@sthelens.gov.uk
