Have you got what it takes to lead?

Management / Business volunteers needed for Berkshire Scouts

Have you got what it takes to lead?
Do you want to benefit young people in your community, make friends and gain new skills at the same time?
Then this could be the volunteering opportunity for you!

As ‘Group Scout Leader’ you help manage and support the group and its leaders. You will make sure that they are running in accordance with the rules and policies of The Scout Association, and are having fun whilst doing so.

Part of the role is ensuring that the Group thrives and has all the support it needs for the young people and adult volunteers. You will make sure the group has an adequate team of enthusiastic and appropriate adults working effectively together and with others. You would support the leaders by setting objectives for their roles and holding reviews and one-to-one meetings. You would ensure that a challenging, exciting and balanced programme is offered to young people in the Scout Group.

We can offer you a free DBS check, free training, masses of career skills, and a great chance to improve your CV. There’s also plenty of support. The most important part is that it’s fun and incredibly rewarding. As part of your role you’ll get to take advantage of our excellent and externally recognised training programme. You’ll complete some mandatory modules to support you in your role, along with modules that you agree with your personal training adviser based on your interests and existing experience.

Ideally you’ll have excellent communication and management skills. Previous Scouting experience is not essential.

Be prepared…to make a difference!
