County Team Opportunities

We currently have an opportunity for a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Adviser to join the county team. This vacancy comes at a really exciting time, as we are improving our approach to Top Awards.

As part of the County Strategy, we have set up a Top Awards Steering Group. This group will focus on allowing QSA and DofE to become more accessible and will address all aspects of both schemes including how to register, support and guidance, delivering courses, expeditions and much more. We will also be carrying out a review of assessors and instructors, with a view to increasing the number of qualifications across Greater Manchester West. 

As DofE Co-ordinator, you will be working alongside our QSA Advisor (Steve Ralph) and ACC Network (Oliver Horne) as part of the Steering Group as well as the Programme team. 

Potential candidates should already have a keen interest in the DofE scheme however, full training will be provided.
