Suffolk Scouts have vacancies for Assistant County Commissioners across all our Sections - Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts and Explorer Scouts. 

We are rolling out our Skills For Life Strategy and we require people to help groups, districts and the county to run quality programmes so that young people can achieve top awards and ultimately the Queen Scout Award. Over 1,000 top awards were earned in 2018 and we need adult leaders to support our section leaders to deliver exciting and stretching programmes for young people to equip them with Skills For Life.

There is now an opportunity for you to apply or put forward someone you know for Assistant County Commissioner roles for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers. If you want to find out more please contact Mark Pearson, County Commissioner, to find out more about what’s involved. Don’t hold back, ask for more information and you may find yourself qualified to take on the challenge!

As an Assistant County Commissioner (ACC), you are not directly involved with Leaders in a Scout Group or District, but these Leaders and the young people they work with will be the end users of all your endeavours.  The practical reality of the needs of Scouting at local level within your Section is your focus and priority. Helping more young people to enjoy better Scouting through delivery of a Balanced Programme and supporting adults committed to delivering this on a regular basis, is where the ACC comes in.  As young people progress through the Movement, the Programme and activities will become more challenging. For the adult, there is the task of developing a progressive Programme to meet the young person’s expectations. To do this, they will need support by way of expertise, resources, information and training.  Finding ways of how to meet their needs and make the job easier is the challenge facing ACC’s and the Sectional Assistant District Commissioners.


You will know how to motivate people, produce plans and have the charisma to inspire your team. Above all, you will believe passionately in Scouting for All, helping Scouting grow, become more inclusive, more youth shaped and make a positive impact in local communities.

It’s a challenging role, but the rewards are huge, improving the outcomes of thousands of young people across Suffolk. There will be full training, mentoring and team building to support you in your new role.  Drop me a line today as applications need to be in by 30th November 2019. 

 

Suffolk Scouts is part of the Scouts, offering fun, friendship and skills for life to over 460,000 young people across the UK.
