UK Contingent Management Team Roles

Following the appointment of Liz Walker as UK Contingent Leader (UKCL) and the three UK Deputy Contingent Leaders (UKDCL): Clive Leader, Rob Murray & Peter Wilson, there are now some exciting opportunities to join the UK Contingent Management Team (CMT).

Overview of the role

We are recruiting a number of members of the UK Contingent Management Team (CMT), to assist with the delivery and planning of the next UK Contingent to the World Scout Jamboree, which takes place in South Korea in 2023.

This post is a national volunteer role that will last up to 3 years, for the duration of the World Scout Jamboree project. Those recruited will report to the relevant Deputy Contingent Leader and each CMT member will manage a small team of Contingent Support Team volunteers. These teams will work with staff and volunteers to deliver a unique international event for thousands of young people aged 14-18 in The Scouts. The project will include a lot of pre-event activities such as training, preparation and UK events as well as evaluation activities after the main trip. We will also be looking to ensure the UK Contingent is sustainable and embedded into the wider programme.
