Role job description –

The ARC (Communications) is a key role which has responsibility for ensuring that Scouting in the Region is appropriately promoted using various media channels, and that communication tools are used effectively to make and keep in contact with both internal and external audiences.

We wish to make more use of local media for positive and proactive news stories to support our seven Districts and 92 Groups. The role also includes the coordination of communications in general. This can include websites, social media accounts and working with local media contacts. Effective communication involves a range of tasks and skills, most often undertaken by a team or by a single individual with multiple talents. We wish to create a communications team to enable a number of areas to be broken down into smaller tasks.


We’re Scouts and everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Every week we give almost half a million people aged 6-25 the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life. At a time when communities are becoming more divided, we bring people together. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more. We’re a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and
inspiring positive futures. We welcome talent from all backgrounds and your contribution to help even more young people succeed in life.


ARC Comms


This role is perfect for you if you are passionate about planning, delivering and measuring the impact of clear communications. You are confident with digital channels of communications, with a keen interest in seeing how we can use digital platforms to better engage with our audiences. You are using email marketing platforms every day, building and developing email campaigns as well being happy to dive into the CMS of a website to make updates. You are confident in the safe handling of personal data and can work well with our data insights team to find ways to better target our communications. You are a problem solver, who likes nothing more than being presented with a challenge or mystery to get to the bottom of. Why did this member not receive their email? Why is this web link not appearing properly in the email? You can effectively manage multiple priorities, collaborating with colleagues from across the organisation. You understand the importance of maintaining a clear and consistent written, spoken and visual identity.

No Scouting experience, no problem! Marketing and communications skills are key for the right person who will enjoy this position.

Adult volunteers, the amazing benefits!

You can make a big difference. We are a volunteer led movement, and we are proud to be so. We are made up of ordinary people doing extraordinary things to help young people.
