UK HQ Local Communications Support Team

Overview of the role

This is a hugely exciting opportunity for the right people to be part of a new team, designed to offer guidance to our local communications volunteers.

The Local Communications Support strand is currently a small team of 4 people. We have huge ambitions to support local teams all the way around the UK to share all the brilliant work being done in communities.

The right support could have a really significant impact on elevating how a group is perceived at a local level – and in turn help with recruitment of adults and young people and in building advocacy.

We’re looking for people who understand the power of strong, clear communication and are passionate about helping local teams with this. You’ll have experience in identifying and communicating a good story and an understanding of the processes that need to be put in place to be able to share them far and wide.

What will you get out of this?

You will get to be part of a relatively new, growing team, so there's plenty of scope to make your mark! You will get the chance to really make a difference to local communications teams. Your help will in turn likely help build advocacy, build trust in Scouts and help grow Scouting in communities around the country.
