DCC (Growth and Development)

Can YOU Lead Us in our Growth and Development?

We are a movement - for the last 113 years we have adapted and changed, developed and grown. More recently we've opened new groups in deprived areas and have opened sections for disadvantaged young children. More young people want to join Scouting in County Durham, Gateshead, South Tyneside, Sunderland and Darlington and we aim to continue making that possible

Who Are We?

Durham Scouts offers an adventurous, vibrant and busy programme for more than 6,000 young people aged 6-25 and exciting opportunities for more than 1,800 adults volunteers. We're looking to continue our journey of growth and development in our twelfth decade helping young people - can you help us?

Who Are You?

You will have management experience and/or capability, and will be passionate about giving as many young people as possible the opportunity to develop Skills for Life to support their resilience and support their ambitions. You will be a great team player, capable of leading, supporting and inspiring other volunteers. You will have the time to devote to the role (but the hours are flexible) and have the ability to travel around the scout county. You may have have no previous Scouting experience, but may have suitable skills and experience from other roles, or you might be a Scouter looking for a change of role.


The Deputy County Commissioner (Growth and Development) is part of the scout county Senior Leadership Team along with the County Commissioner and other Deputy County Commissioners. You will be supported by the County Commissioner and other Deputy County Commissioners as well as the Scout Association Regional Support Team, with whom you will work closely on growth and development projects. Most importantly, you will be part of a values-based team who work together to help everyone to achieve their goals.
