Every Scout Group needs a leader - be our Group Lead Volunteer

Approximate time required
up to 3 hours a week

Our group lead volunteer coordinates the work of our group leadership team to ensure the effective operation of our scout group. 

They ensure help to make sure that our group is well run, has enough leaders and supporters in each of our section leadership teams and that they have all the things they need to provide an exciting weekly programme to their young people.

They also work closely with our group chair and the members of our group board of trustees, so If you like the idea of working in a small, flexible team to get things done to help our scout group be the best it can this is the role for you.
This is an ideal role for someone who is interested in supporting our scout group by working with adults and having some contact with young people. 

This is a rewarding role that could be easily be shared with one or two others to spread the tasks and is ideal for someone (or a team), who would like to support local scouting in a really flexible way and by not working directly with young people. If you have an eye for light admin., then why not support the growth and development of young people and our leadership team by taking on this vital role.

You don't need any previous experience or to know anything about scouting - What’s more important is your own skills and experience as well as empathy with our mission and values. We provide an induction, lots of online reference and resources, a sociable network, a relevant level of easy to access learning to support you with the coordination of our scout group as well as ongoing face to face support. 

We know that life can be busy, so we're all about flexibility: This is a very flexible role which you can fit around your family, work and social commitments and other than the odd pre-planned meeting you can fit things around you! You could also share this role with someone too!  

Being part of scouting is great fun and it goes without saying that helping young people can be one of the most rewarding things you can do, plus it also looks great on your CV!
Give young people the skills they need to succeed and find out how scouts can be just as rewarding for you. We’re not going to pretend it’s always easy. This is an important role. With big rewards.
