Volunteering at Scouts is changing to help us reach more young people - Discover what this means


All our activities are run by volunteers, who might join us because they want to:

  • Try something new
  • Make friends
  • Spend time with their children – or gain experience with young people
  • Do something good for their community and themselves
  • Keep their bodies and brains active and happy – whether that’s by scaling mountains, sharing skills or serving tea

All end up making a huge difference to young people’s lives – gifting them with skills for life, and learning a whole lot about themselves along the way.

But don’t just take our word for it. Take theirs.

I’ve gained more crucial experience and knowledge being with Scouts over the past two years than I have in the last fifteen years of work experience.

I can genuinely say, if we didn’t have Scouting throughout this past year of lockdowns, I think as a family we would have struggled.

On these pages you’ll find our current vacancies – the names we’ve used aren’t the official Scouts ones, instead we’ve tried to use terms which actually say what the role does. Assistant District Commissioner won’t mean much to most people!

We’ve also split some roles up a bit to make things more flexible. Some people might prefer just to be an Activity Runner for example without having to do the planning as well, while others may be interested in being a Programme Planner without actually having to turn up each week and run things. Some people might like to combine the two, and that’s fine too!
