Could you support the work of our Appointments Advisory Committee?

14th October 2016

Would you like to help ensure that we are appointing the best individuals to District Commissioner, Deputy District Commissioner and Region level Scouting volunteer roles?

We’re looking for volunteers to join the Region’s Appointments Advisory Committee.

What does it do?

The Appointments Advisory Sub-Committee meets every second month and the majority of its business is meeting with volunteers who have been recommended for a new Scouting role.

The committee meets with them to explore the role that they have been asked to undertaken, ensuring that they fully understand the detail of what they are taking on and that they are suitably skilled and experienced, or can be supported to develop their skills to allow them function effectively in that role.

Being part of the committee will develop your skills in interviewing people and plays an important part in the process of vetting Scouting volunteers.

With the commitment from Scouting to becoming youth shaped by 2018 and more diverse, we would particularly welcome interest from young adults in the 18 – 25 age range and also female members of the committee.

For further information or to have an informal chat about the role, please contact Committee Chair, Ian McPherson.
