District Commissioner (Lead Volunteer) Team

Open Volunteer Spots: Unlimited

Help support our continued success!

The search is on for people to join the team that head up Wansdyke Scouts, and we need you to think about anyone you know who would thrive in one of these roles which of course may even be yourself!

Are you or do you know someone who…

  • can inspire and enthuse?
  • applies strategic and creative thinking to a challenge?
  • could build and lead a team of key volunteers?
  • is resourceful and energetic?
  • believes in developing young people and volunteers in your area?

The role

The Team DC role for Wansdyke Scouts will consist of four to five individuals, who together, will form the Wansdyke District Lead Volunteer team.

They will work together to help groups grow and deliver even more exciting activities, to even more young people.

It is expected that the team will share the overall responsibilities of the District Lead Volunteer role by taking the lead for one of following four pillars:

  • Support to Groups
  • Programme Support and Events
  • Volunteer recruitment and Development
  • District Support
  • Or by taking on the overall team leader role who will coordinate the lead volunteer team.

Team members for each pillar will be responsible for recruiting and supporting a team of volunteers to deliver on agreed development actions to support the groups as well as young people across the district.

Being part of the Lead Volunteer Team will be rewarding and give you an opportunity to develop yourself as well as inspire the adult volunteers and young people across the District.
