Staffordshire Scouts are looking for a brilliant volunteer manager to take Scouting forward in the County. As County Commissioner you will offer support to District Commissioners and their Districts. You will manage adults, setting objectives and holding regular one to ones. Most importantly you will ensure that Scouting offers an enjoyable and attractive programme for young people helping prepare them for a bright future.
Although no Scouting experience is necessary, you will know how to motivate people, produce local development plans and have the charisma to inspire your team. Above all, you will believe passionately in Scouting for All, helping Scouting grow, become more inclusive, more youth shaped and make a positive impact in local communities.
It’s a challenging role, but the rewards are huge, improving the outcomes of thousands of young people.

The successful candidate will be responsible for taking Staffordshire forward into the future as a growing organisation relevant to young people and adults alike. Our current youth membership in the County is over 8,388. These young people are supported by 2,871 adults.
