We are looking for up to 4 SUBU Beach Champion Project Leaders, who will organise Beach Cleans for student volunteers throughout the year, to help keep our beautiful coastline clean and litter free.
Our SUBU Project leaders are vital to the success of our SUBU volunteering, community action and sustainability action activities
The Project Leaders hold overall responsibility for the Bournemouth Beach Champions Project. They will be the main point of contact for anyone wanting information about or to join the project and will be the link between SUBU and the Project Team. They will manage social media communication, set up ‘events’, and get the message out to anyone interested in taking part in the project.
They are responsible for the effective running of the project, setting objectives and communicating this to the whole team, recruiting volunteers, arranging meetings/training/events and completing or overseeing successful activities within the project. They will be responsible for liaising with other external local community action groups, and environmental charity organisations, and the BU Reslife Team, to collaborate on events.
As a leader you will focus on hands on beach cleans when the weather is good and then on setting up student focused campaigns through the winter months.
The Project Leaders will liaise with the SUBU Opportunities Team regarding any financial support for the project, as well as being responsible for the maintenance, care, and storage of any equipment that may belong to the project and keeping regular inventories of the equipment including t shirts for the team.
The Project Leader needs to have an overview of the whole project, although they don’t necessarily need to be at every event.
Project Leaders will be expected to organise at least 3 events per term.
A key part of the role is to ensure that student volunteers enjoy the opportunity, know what they are doing during the activity, complete the tasks required and work safely.
