Are you willing to step out of your comfort zone?
We are always on the lookout for outgoing, dedicated students to lead our challenges. Think you've got what it takes?
It is important to remember that being a challenge leader is not just about taking on the challenge itself - you'll be recruiting your team, managing them in the run up to the challenge and helping them reach their fundraising target. To be a successful challenge leader you must have:
- A passion for adventure
- The ability to inspire others
- A desire to make a difference
So, if you think you have what it takes to seize the moment and take on a challenge a life time then we would love to hear from you.
WHAT DOES A CHALLENGE LEADER DO?
Central to the success of every challenge is its leader. They are the ones who recruit the teams, keep them motivated and provide vital support from start to finish. We could not do what we do without them.
WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
As a challenge leader, you will not only be heading on the trip of a lifetime, but gaining all-important leadership experience. Stand out from the crowd by doing something unique and truly challenging - how many students can put on their CV that they’ve led a team of their peers up a mountain, or across a marathon finish line? Plus, who knows, we might end up taking you on ourselves…
PASSIONATE ABOUT MAKING A DIFFERENCE?
The challenge isn’t just about making it to the summit or finish line – it’s about raising crucial funds for some incredible charities. You will be responsible for helping your team meet their fundraising targets. Not to be taken lightly, we want people who really care about making a difference to take this on. There’s no better feeling than knowing what that money can do, and the fact you raised it.
WANT TO ENCOURAGE, MOTIVATE & INSPIRE OTHERS?
"When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” As clichéd as this might sound, you will need determination and drive to recruit a team and propel them forward to reach the end goal. A far cry from bossing people about, you will learn what it takes to inspire, encourage and motivate your fellow peers.You might well be faced with obstacles along the way. Do you have the enthusiasm and creativity to overcome them? We’ll also make sure you get the support you need so that nothing stands in the way of you and your team.
DETERMINED TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR UNIVERSITY EXPERIENCE?
Are you the type of person who doesn’t let an opportunity pass you by? Here at Choose a Challenge we strongly believe that the university experience shouldn’t be limited to the lecture hall and library – the experiences outside are just as valuable. If you are willing to take a risk and dare yourself to achieve things you never dreamt of doing. Of all the things you'll do at university, there's not much as challenging as this, and trust us - you'll remember it forever!
LOVE MEETING NEW PEOPLE?
Prefer being out and about to having your nose stuck in a book in the library? You will be meeting some amazing people in this role so come equipped with an outgoing personality and be ready to approach the unsuspecting group sitting in the bar to come join you. Confidence is everything!
