Vacancies

 

We currently have the following volunteer positions available (as of September 2021)

Assistant
Section Leaders

A vital role for enthusiastic people who like to get stuck in with fun activities. This role is normally job-shared with other volunteers, thereby reducing the regular term-time commitment.

​Our Assistant Leaders meet every term to plan the programme, sharing the running of Scout, Cub Scout or Beaver Scout sessions to suit their other commitments.

Basic training is provided and a minimum of one uniformed Leader attends each Scouting session.


To enquire about this role please send an email to the Group Scout Leader

HQ Site Manager

The Site Manager is responsible for ensuring that the 1st Weybridge Scout Group HQ in Springfield lane is safe and secure for all users.

 

The role requires basic DIY capabilities and an understanding of risk issues, including the use of ladders, COVID and equipment safety.

 

Typically this role involves an average of about 3-4 hours per month on routine and ad-hoc tasks. The outgoing Site Manager will provide a thorough handover and a period of support for the new role holder.

To enquire about this role please send an email to the Group Scout Leader

Fundraising - Social Media and Events Managers

We are looking for two people to join our Fundraising team. The roles are vital for our fundraising activities and the Group’s presence on social media. 

 

The role holders will be required to organise events such as the quiz night and the Group’s stall at the Oatlands Village Fayre. There are other event ideas in the pipeline and fresh ideas are always welcomed.

Requirements for the roles are enthusiasm, reliability and people skills suited to organising events while coordinating with the rest of the Executive Committee. Experience with managing social media feeds would be an advantage. 

Both roles require that the volunteers become Trustees of the Group

Parent Representatives

We are looking for parents with children in our Cub Pack and Scout Troop (or parents with children on the waiting list for those sections) to become members of the Executive Committee.

The Parent Rep role is important in making sure that views and suggestions from parents are brought to the Exec so that they can be taken into account when decisions are made about the running of each section, and the Group as a whole.

The commitment would be regular attendance at drop-off and pick-up so that the Parent Rep is available to chat with other parents, and attendance at one Exec meeting each term. The role involves becoming a Trustee of the Group.
