Group Lead Volunteer: 5th Brackley

Contact: Will Hazell Contact Email: dlv@gdscouts.org.uk Open Volunteer Spots: Unlimited

Being a Group Lead Volunteer (GLV) is all about providing direction and support to develop your Group.  This is a management role and we’re looking for someone who can provide leadership, motivation and guidance to our adult volunteers.

A large part of the GLV role involves supporting adult volunteers, including those working directly with young people.

Lead Volunteers support adults who work directly with young people. They need support to ensure that they are motivated, inspired and focused on providing first-class Scouting. A good manager thanks other volunteers for their hard work, and helps to make sure that they feel happy and supported, week after week.

The Lead Volunteer will also provide direction for the Scout Group, and will help others see the bigger Scouting picture through solid leadership.

We believe that everyone in management roles within Scouting should adopt an approach that combines the skills of both leadership and management.

Volunteering for the Scouts is changing to help us reach more young people and therefore the role of Group Lead Volunteer is more flexible than ever before. As Lead Volunteer for 5th Brackley, you will lead the Group Leadership Team and be responsible for making sure that all team tasks are completed, but this doesn’t mean completing them all yourself. For more information on the Group Leadership Team, please see https://www.scouts.org.uk/volunteers/volunteer-experience/teams/group-leadership-teams/.

If you’d like some more information about the role (or are ready to apply!), please contact Will Hazell (District Lead Volunteer) on dlv@gdscouts.org.uk.
