Scouting is a volunteer organisation and as such these are volunteer roles. We offer a flexible volunteering approach, so any time you are able to give is greatly appreciated.
Some roles will require more time than others, however, these are just a selection of roles available and we would be happy to discuss with you any opportunities to volunteer within our fantastic organisation.
All appointments are subject to satisfactory enhanced DBS (CRB) clearance.
We're looking for someone (or a team of people) to lead the Pocklington Scout District.
We need someone who can provide guidance to our volunteers, develop a team of people that can help to support and deliver a great programme to our young people, as well as an ability to motivate other adult volunteers within the District.
A large part of this role involves supporting managers of local Groups. For any adult volunteer in Scouting, their manager will be a regular point of call for support. You don’t need any prior experience of Scouting to apply for this role: we’ll make sure you’re fully trained and supported - and have some fun along the way!
The Scout District is made up of five groups based in the following areas: Market Weighton, Holme-on-Spalding-Moor, Pockligton, Melbourne and Stamford Bridge
Below is an information pack that gives more information about the role - don't be put off by the requirements though, it doesn't have to be one person, there are plenty of examples of successful teams undertaking this role on a shared basis.
If you want to just have an informal chat to get to know a bit about the role before you decide, you can can contact Alan Hayward, Deputy County Commissioner for Adult Support - details are included within the pack.
If you are interested, you are welcome to apply for the role yourself, or alternatively, nominate someone that you think will be suitable for the role.
Well this is your opportunity to apply.

If you would like to help with these or any others - or simply want to discuss how you can help, please contact Alan Hayward for an initial chat about what is involved.
