We are currently looking for people to volunteer for the following roles:
Assistant Scout Leader
Scouts are aged 10-14 years of age. Scout Leaders facilitate a wide range of adventurous activities leading to enhanced confidence and self-esteem, and to the Chief Scout’s Gold Award. No one individual is likely to have the complete set of skills required to run an effective Scout Troop. Teamwork is key, and all the support you need is there in abundance at District, County and National level. A great part of helping Scouts is seeing them develop into well-rounded teenagers and enjoying yourself the adventures that you provide for them. No experience is necessary as fully training and support will be provided.
Assistant Cub Leader
Cubs are aged 8-10 1/2. Cub Leaders facilitate a wide range of activities which help develop a taste for adventure, a sense of community, an understanding of other people and an appreciation of nature, all leading to enhanced confidence, and to the Chief Scout’s Silver Award. Many of the required skills will come naturally to you, others can be learnt, but the support you need will always be there. A great part of helping Cubs is that you will introduce them to activities they have never tried before, quite possibly sparking a life-long interest. No experience is necessary as fully training and support will be provided.
The role of the Group Administrator is to maintain records held at Scout Group Level. This includes maintaining records for receipt of subs, maintaining Gift Aid Records and making Gift Aid Claims on behalf of the Group, and maintaining records for a small number of Group activities undertaken each year. The role involves working closely with the Group Scout Leaders and Treasurer. No prior experience is necessary. The role would ideally suit someone who would like to contribute to the Scout Group, but cannot give a regular weekly commitment.
