We are on the look out for our next Regional Treasurer... Could it be you?
As Scouts, we believe in empowering young people with skills for life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more. The Treasurer will be accountable for the finances of Clyde Scouts, providing oversight to the finance team.
Clyde Scouts is a Region within Scouting in Scotland and is a registered Charity.
The Region supports Scouting over Glasgow, East Renfrewshire, East Dunbartonshire, North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire. We are there to make sure that every group and District is provided with the support to provide #SkillsForLife for every young person in their area.
Scouts take part in a wide range of activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for everyone. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
Clyde Scouts is extremely lucky to have several operations which support our mission:
1. Auchengillan Outdoor Centre - An Outdoor Education and Adventure centre for young people in Scouts as well as from School and other groups
2. The Glasgow Scout Shop - A small shop that provides Scouting Uniform, badges and other items used for outdoor activities.
3. Several Campsites
4. Access to Pinkston Watersports - A watersports centre in Glasgow providing amazing opportunities for young people to experience Kayaking
Providing all of this isn't easy but the Region is managed and run by the Regional Team which is made up of amazing volunteers.
We have our Regional Chair, Regional Commissioner, members of Committees and now we are looking for you... the Regional Treasurer.
