Volunteer for Merseyside Scouts

Merseyside Scouts is looking for a County Commissioner to manage a team of volunteers and lead Merseyside Scouts forward. Scouting in Merseyside is growing and you can be a part of it.

You need to be up for a challenge and we promise you fun and adventure, as you travel around the county and meet the 1000’s of young people enjoying scouting in Merseyside. No scout experience is necessary and you will have a full team around you, as well as being a member of a worldwide organisation with over 600,000 members in the UK.

Could you support and inspire over 7,300 young people? Would you enjoy public speaking as well as developing strategy? Merseyside Scouts are looking for a volunteer with management experience who wants to do more in their community, with excellent inter-personal skills and the ability to motivate, lead and inspire others.

Merseyside Scouts offer a vibrant, exciting and adventurous co-educational programme for young people aged 6-25 and now have over 10,000 young people and adults involved in what we do, every week of the year.

As County Commissioner you would be responsible for leading the Scout County ensuring that good quality scouting is provided for young people, and the organisation is relevant to young people and adults alike in the future.  You would be capable of providing strategic direction, working with people of all ages and enabling change.  The role is undoubtedly a challenge but you would not be on your own.  The County Commissioner works as the head of a team in Merseyside and you would have the support of the wider regional and national teams as well. There is plenty of training available so being new to scouting is no bar.

For further information or to obtain a nomination form, contact Tim Leader, Chair of County Commissioner Search Group, at timleader25@gmail.com or call 015395 33270.
