Development Officer - Greater London South

£26,526 pa fixed term (2½ years)
Full time 35 hours per week

Greater London South Scout County is looking to appoint an experienced professional to develop Scouting across its five London boroughs, and in particular in Lambeth and Wandsworth.

The county plays a vital role in developing young people in Royal Greenwich, Lewisham, Southwark, Lambeth and Wandsworth for adult life. However, Greater London South is only a success because of the 900 adult volunteers who deliver and support the activities and everyday adventure Scouting offers.

About the role

The role will include recruiting adult volunteers, supporting local managers in the development of Scouting in their areas and supporting the county management team to develop and implement volunteering strategies and diversity policies.

If you are highly organised and motivated, understand volunteering and enjoy a varied and challenging role we would welcome your application.
