Do you have a passion for sharing the amazing things that our volunteers and young people get up to in local Scout Groups as we deliver #SkillsForLife?

We're growing our volunteer team and looking to recruit a Lead Volunteer for our Communications and Marketing Team. We're looking for someone who has a passion for promoting local Scouting and has the ability to plan and use communication tools such as social media, canva and other digital platforms.

This is a flexible volunteering opportunity which means your commitment can be balanced around your lifestyle - working with your team to make sure that the Regional Communications are kept up to date and put out timely.

You will provide leadership for your team, develop a communications plan for the Region and visit groups and events to make sure our volunteers and young people are kept up to date.

What Our Communications & Marketing Team Does

Social Media: Creating content relevant to our audiences and promoting Clyde Scouts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn (click on the links to view our profiles on each).

Website: Maintenance, upkeep and optimising the website to attract new volunteers/young people and to provide our members with key information on what we do/how we can help them.

Newsletter: Create and publish the Monthly Volunteer Newsletter and ad-hoc email for events, opportunities and News.

Media: Promote “good news stories” through external media outlets and help liaise with local media contacts to grow our reach.

Advertising /Volunteer Recruitment: Promote the latest volunteering opportunities in Clyde Scouts (including our districts/groups) and encourage more people to start volunteering.

Communications Support: Provide support to districts and groups to improve internal and external communications.

Internal Communications: Ensure Clyde Scouts communicates efficiently internally and that communication flows well between regional staff and volunteers.

What Skills Can I Gain?

As you can see from above, Communications is a varied role with a lot going on. This means there is an opportunity to gain skills in many areas and become familiar with tools we use such as Canva, Trello, Office 365, Email Octopus and Amazon AWS. You will also get the opportunity to attend events across the Region and sometimes further afield and work with young people to make sure their voices are heard.
