Vacancy: Braid Lead Volunteer

Quick links

Could you Help Lead Scouting in Braid District?

As Judith Wood is now coming to the end of her term as Lead Volunteer, we are looking for a small team of people who can provide leadership, motivation and guidance to Braid Scouts and its volunteers. You don’t need any prior experience of Scouting to put yourself forward for this role: we’ll make sure that you’re fully trained and supported. 

Lead Volunteers play a really important role in supporting those who lead local Scouting within groups as well as other volunteers. Adults at every level of Scouting need support to ensure that they are motivated, inspired and focused on providing first-class Scouting. As a Lead Volunteer, you will also provide direction for Braid Scouts, and will help others see the bigger Scouting picture through solid leadership. 

As Scouting prepares to introduce exciting changes to improve the volunteer experience for new and existing volunteers, the Lead Volunteers will lead Braid Scouts through this period of transition and work with the Braid Scouts and South East Scotland Scouts leadership teams to ensure that Braid Scouts is able to take advantage of the opportunities that these changes offer, including providing clear communication on the changes to members within Braid Scouts

Lead Volunteer role, in a nutshell: 

  • Provide strategic leadership to Scouting in the District
  • * Ensure that good quality Scouting is delivered to young people 
  • * Develop Scouting in the District 
  • * Promote and maintain the policies of The Scouts
  • * Positively manage and support adults, defining roles and responsibilities
