Wellesbourne Scouts Help Wanted

Positions we need your help to fill!

Scouting is about being with friends as part of a team, participating in the adventure and opportunities of life. We have a mix of roles working directly with young people, elected executive committee members and an army of parent helpers. We would be delighted to hear from you if you want to get involved.

Positions to Fill

Needed_Assistant Explorer Leader

Wellesbourne Scouts

Assistant Explorer Leader / Section Assistant (m/f)

Name: It could be you....

Role Description: Do you cherish your own memories of the outdoors, climbing trees, poking fires and games in the woods? Do you share a sense of camaraderie with young people aged 14-18, but also able to engage them to ensure they act responsibly and stay safe? Do you believe children need to be off their gaming machines and instead learning teamwork, developing skills-for-life and an appreciation for the world they do not get in school?

Why Hiring: Our Explorer numbers are healthy and growing! Since we have been gifted access to Sherbourne Estate, the children cannot get enough of the fun and adventures in “the wild”. Running safe weekly activities so that everyone gets a go requires that we divide the children into smaller working groups and to do that we need more adult hands-on help.

You may come home on a Thursday evening smelling of smoke and a bit muddy, but back at your desk in the office on Friday morning it will all seem worthwhile. If camping is not your thing or you have a medical condition do not worry, we build the role with flexibility around the person and what you can do rather than what you can’t.

Favourite Cake:   Your charges are often off independently on the activity you set them on, and you seem to magically know your way to the secret cake supply.... anything can happen!
