Support our Adventures!

We've got several volunteer vacancies across Durham Scouts - see current vacancies below.

County Team Leader Vacancies - A Unique Volunteering Opportunity

You will know by now that one of the four themes of the Transformation Project is to change the way that we volunteer and move to a Team Based Approach.   We are working on Building our new County team and are now looking to recruit our new Team Leaders to lead the Programme, Support and Volunteer Development teams respectively.   We are starting with a blank sheet of paper and are searching across the whole of our Volunteers in Scouting in Durham for those Team Leaders.

We’re looking for people who care deeply about Scouting in Durham, and the outcomes young people achieve as a result. We need someone really inspiring – like yourself, Build Teams to make the Volunteer Experience easier and better.   You’ll be leading how we shape the way we help Adult Volunteers to support young people develop skills for life

These roles are all about people and one of the incredible benefits of volunteering in any role in Scouts, but even more so as a County Team Leader, is the teams of people you get to work with. You get to inspire, motivate, shape and develop your team, building friendships and establishing a sense of camaraderie focused around our mission for transforming the Volunteer Experience.

If you’re still reading, then you obviously have an interest in a unique opportunity to make a real impact on the lives of our Adult Volunteers in our County through building, nurturing and leading a team to deliver our shared vision - so we would love to hear from you.   And if not you, then maybe you know someone who be fantastic in one of these roles.

We welcome applications from all members of Durham Scouting and beyond.   Age and experience are no barrier, we will provide support, guidance and learning opportunities for the successful candidate.  We are committed to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in everything we do.

Closing date for applications is midnight Friday 9th February.
