Group Scout Leader - 1st Coggeshall Scout Group

This role will suit a skilled manager, with or without prior experience of scouts. The Group Scout Leader is the senior volunteer within a scout group, leading the team of adults who run the group. This is a voluntary role. There are no fixed hours, though the commitment required will usually be of the order of 2 to 3 hours per week, at times to suit the individual. The initial appointment is for three years.
The 1st Coggeshall Scout Group is a large, successful and thriving group, providing exciting, adventurous activities to over 100 boys and girls aged 6-14. The group is currently based in a new Headquarters located at Honywood School Coggeshall, and the current Group Scout Leader is stepping down.
The group has a large team of skilled and experienced adult leaders, who provide a weekly programme of activities for its members. However, for the long term success of the group, great management is as important as great people on the front line.
The role of Group Scout Leader breaks down into three main areas:

  1. Act as line manager for the adults in the group, ensuring that recruitment, induction, training and reviews are carried out.
  2. Oversee the programme delivered across the group, ensuring that sections work together, and the high quality is maintained.
  3. Develop and manage a long-term plan for the group, ensuring that it remains successful and develops into the future.

If you are a skilled manager, who can lead an organisation and work with a range of people and if you can spare the time to make a difference for young people, then this role could be for you. Prior experience of scouting would be helpful, but certainly isn’t essential – we will provide you with award-winning training and support, and the current team of leaders at the group have over 200 years’ experience between them!
