British Overseas Territories Team Members

Overview of the role

We want to increase the support we give the British Overseas Territories, so every young person no matter if they are in Birmingham or Bermuda has access to a great, safe Scout programme and our volunteers are supported.  

This is a new team, supporting the Lead Volunteer for the British Overseas Territories, to help develop 5 of our British Overseas Territories (Bermuda, Gibraltar, Anguilla, British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands) in line with UK Scouting. 

We are looking for support with a few different areas: 

  • Programme – working with the UK Leads for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, and colleagues across BSO and the regions, developing guidance and resources to support the delivery of safe, engaging, suitable programmes for the young people in our overseas territories 

  • Learning - ensuring compliance with learning modules, and building a virtual community of volunteers who can support and deliver training across the 5 countries, ensuring provision and completion of all learning for all adults 

  • Communications - building a campaign of internal communications across the British Overseas Territories to ensure consistent, engaging communications between the island and countries, as well as ensuring communications from UK HQ are shared across suitable platforms 

  • Volunteer Experience – supporting transformation across the British Overseas Territories and engaging the adult volunteers there with the volunteer experience changes.  

We want to make sure you feel supported, empowered, and that you enjoy your time volunteering. You’ll be part of a friendly team of volunteers and staff members who will support you in your role. We will cover your expenses (all travel and out-of-pocket expenses associated with the role, according to the expenses policy) and support any other adjustments we can make to enable you to volunteer with us.
