Programme Delivery Officer

Core Purpose


The core purpose is to support adult volunteers in Scouting to access and benefit from elements of the existing programme including; youth social action (including ‘A Million Hands’), Top Awards (including Queen Scout Award, The Duke of Edinburgh Award), assisting third party relationships (including The Royal Navy and The Royal Air Force), and answering tier 2 programme delivery queries from members via the Information Centre.

You will liaise with and support National Scout Active Support units, capturing frequently asked questions, review trends, and share insight to improve processes, systems and members understanding. 

You will support the implementation of high quality social action programmes for Young Leaders (aged 14-18), adult volunteers, and young people with at least half of these coming from communities where opportunities are currently under represented.  This role is inclusive of, but not restricted to, our provision for 4 and 5 year olds.

You will also play a supporting role within the wider Programme team, helping to ensure we design amazing programme content, national tools and processes to pilot and implement, secure external funding, and undertake high quality learning and evaluation so that we constantly improve what we do for young people and create a culture that is innovative, supportive and empowering for the volunteers we work with.
