You will carry out an important role in the busy Tall Ships Office developing the volunteer/Liaison Officer system for The Tall Ships Races – Hartlepool 2010. The role of Chief Liaison Officer is key to the success of the event as you will be responsible for recruiting, motivating, managing and supporting a group of volunteers who are giving their time freely and without whom the event could not happen.

Prior to the event you will be responsible for developing a volunteer training programme, and recruiting and training a team of 200 volunteers. You will be required to develop appropriate administrative and information management systems. At the event, you will be required to effectively manage and co-ordinate the tasks of the volunteers and ensure that the Captains and crew take full advantage of the fleet facilities and in-port activities that are arranged for them.

We are looking for a self-starter with lots of energy and who has excellent communication, people management, leadership and organisational skills, and a flexible approach to workload pressures and deadlines. Sailing experience and a knowledge of the needs of sailing ships is desirable.

The successful applicant will accompany key Tall Ships project staff on a fact-finding visit to The Tall Ships Races in Belfast Friday 14th August – Sunday 16th August 2009.
