What does a challenge leader do?
As a challenge leader, you’ll be central to the success of the challenge. With our help, you’ll make a recruitment plan specific to your campus and we’ll provide you with all the materials to help you recruit a team of fellow students.
Once your team are on board, you will work alongside the Student Fundraising Officers at your chosen charity to provide one-to-one and group support to help get everyone to their fundraising targets.
Our team will provide you with all the support for the trip itself, including travel advice, training, pre-departure briefings, and more.
What's in it for me?
As a challenge leader, you will not only be heading out on the trip of a lifetime, but having discounts on your own fundraising target and gaining all-important leadership experience. We will support you to make the most of your role, and gain transferable skills that’ll make your CV stand out from the crowd.
How many students can put on their CV that they’ve led a team of their peers on a European marathon, or overseas trek, and raised thousands for charity in the process? Plus, who knows, we might end up taking you on ourselves!
Making a real difference
The challenge isn’t just about making it to the summit, or the finish line – it’s about raising crucial funds for incredible charities. You will be responsible for helping your team meet fundraising targets. Not to be taken lightly, we want people who care about making a difference.
There’s no better feeling than knowing what that money can do, and the fact you raised it. Why not check out some of the work our amazing charity partners do here.
The Challenge Leader Programme has recently been accredited and ‘Institute Approved’ by the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM). Not only will becoming a Challenge Leader provide you with life-changing experiences and incredible friends for life, but the transferrable skills you gain will be quantifiable through the online components offered by ILM.
