Allocated tasks

Support Scouts locally by engaging with the community 

  • Create and look after relationships with other organisations that can help Scouts grow locally. 
  • Create a positive image of Scouts in the local community. For example, through local media. 
  • Plan and run fundraising events when they’re needed. 

Open new provision 

  • Work with Groups and other District teams to open, close, or merge Sections (depending on local demand). 

Support effective processes 

  • Carry out finance administration. This could include paying expenses/invoices, and tracking income/expenditure against the budget. 
  • Set up and look after email, web, social media, and web meeting systems for the District (and, if appropriate, for Groups and Units). 
  • If there are staff, make sure they’re properly managed and well recognised. 
  • Look after joining enquiries across the District. 

Look after property and equipment 

  • Check bookings and maintenance for any District-owned property and equipment (including 14-24 Sections). 
  • Oversee meeting places for 14-24 Sections (whether they’re rented, leased, or owned).
