We need a new team leader!

As the leader of the team we would call you the District Commissioner (DC).

In a nutshell, the DC would be: Inspiring and
enthusiastic, super resourceful and full of
energy. A problem solver, fantastic team
builder and leader. Believe passionately about
developing young people and adult volunteers
to be there best.

This is an opportunity to make a real difference to local young people.

Forest of Dean Scouts won’t be the only one to benefit – so what’s in it for you?

Being a DC, will look great on your CV, demonstrating to prospective employers that you have some amazing additional skills. Don’t worry if you are new to Scouts, that’s no problem, we will teach you everything you need to know, and our award-winning training scheme even leads to a certified qualification.

Volunteering with Scouting can be as flexible as you need so if you are worried that you won’t have enough time why not consider a role share within a small team.

We are here to fill you in on the details, so if you want to know more, please do get in touch with the DC search team via email : DCSearch@forestofdeanScouts.org

We will send you a vacancy pack and we are more than happy to have a chat about the role and how you may be able to take on this very important role.

There are many ways that you can apply or nominate someone else – why not give it a go and try one of them.


We would love to hear from you by 19th July 2021.

Thank you for your time so far and please do shout if you have any queries at all!
