All of the staff at Newark & District Air Cadets are volunteers and have full time jobs. They give their time on evenings and at weekends on a voluntary basis to help our Cadets.
The uniformed staff are led by our Commanding Officer (C.O), they undertake training and development activities and are responsible for driving the squadron forward. They also deliver key activities such as Duke of Edinburgh awards and First Aid Training.
Our Civilian Instructors (C.I's) support the work of the Squadron, they lead Cadet training sessions, take an active role in activities such as sport and adventure training and assist at commemorative events.
As the backbone of our organisation we're always on the look out for high-caliber individuals to become volunteers, helping to run the activities that play such an important role in the lives of our young members.
All kinds of people make up our volunteer staff, coming from a range of backgrounds and interests. Obviously if you have direct experience of working with young people, or any relevant skills such as flying or gliding, you would be particularly welcome. These aren't essential though, as we will train and support you at every stage.
That said, you'll have some personal qualities that are essential, such as patience, maturity and responsibility along with an understanding of young people and their needs.
All uniformed staff and civilian instructors hold clearance from the Disclosure Barring Service.
