One of the oldest training agencies in the World is currently recruiting for a brand new role.
Founded in 1953, the British Sub Aqua Club is launching an exciting strategy to develop and deliver BSAC training. In order to support this, BSAC is recruiting for a newly created position, 'Head of Diving and Training'.
Mary Tetley, BSAC CEO stated "it is essential for applicants to have credible authority on diving and diver training. It is preferable that the candidate has a minimum of five years’ instructor experience, though it doesn't necessarily have to be with BSAC. The candidate does need to have substantial experience in the recreational diving and lifestyle market."
Reporting to the CEO and working closely with the National Diving Officer, this new and exciting role will innovate and lead the development and delivery of BSAC training and diving support services. The role is to lead the delivery of BSAC’s strategic aims for diving and training along with its vision, mission and values.
As a member of the Senior Leadership Team, the successful candidate will innovate and lead the development and delivery of new and existing BSAC training and diving support services, to broaden BSAC’s appeal and thus increase membership, participation and engagement, ensuring BSAC standards for safety and quality are maintained within the BSAC training markets/partners (branches/centres/licensees).
This role will manage all aspects of development, deployment, and evaluation. It will entail empathy and creative thinking to bring members, volunteers and stakeholders with BSAC on a positive inspiring journey.
The Head of Diving and Training will be a remote-based, full-time role, but will be expected to attend in-person council meetings (once they restart) at BSAC HQ in Cheshire, as well as other occasional travel requirements.
It is essential for applicants to have credible authority on diving and diver training, preferably with a minimum of five years’ instructor experience, though not necessarily with BSAC, as well as substantial experience in the recreational diving and lifestyle market.
BSAC welcomes applications from all ages, genders, ethnicities, and backgrounds.
To apply for the role, complete the application form and return by email to CEO, Mary Tetley, by 16 July 2021. Candidates are invited to email or call Mary for an informal chat about the role if they so wish.
