Marketing & Communications

Do you have a passion for sharing the amazing things that our volunteers and young people get up to in local Scout Groups as we deliver #SkillsForLife?

We're growing our volunteer team and looking to recruit Communications & Marketing Volunteers. We're not looking for any particular skill sets (although always welcome those with specialist knowledge) and you don't require experience in marketing before - it could be a great opportunity to gain new skills!

This is a flexible volunteering opportunity which means your commitment can be balanced around your lifestyle - whether that means volunteering 2 hours every week or 4 hours at once!

This opportunity is also open to Explorers & Young Leaders aged 16+ - it could be used as a great CV builder or as part of the DofE Volunteering requirement.

Fill out this short form to express interest in joining our communications & marketing team.

What Skills Can I Gain?

As you can see from above, Communications is a varied role with a lot going on. This means there is an opportunity to gain skills in many areas and become familiar with tools we use such as Canva, Trello, Office 365, Email Octopus and Amazon AWS. The word map below should give you an idea of some of the skills you can gain/improve by volunteering in our communications & marketing team.
