between the ages of 18 and 25 years old.
We’re looking for an Assistant Regional Commissioner (Scout

with District Scout Network Commissioners (DSNCs) across our 8 Districts.

Initially, the role will involve helping District
Commissioners to identify and recruit DSNCs to provide leadership for the
section in their District.
As these key local managers are recruited, you will then
support them to put ambitious plans for programme for this section in place.
The programme for this section includes the Queen’s Scout
Award, Explorer Belt and Scouts of the World Award and your role will help to
champion these top awards and encourage young adults to shape what else they’d
like to see in their programme.
