Join The Adventure!

There are currently a range of exciting opportunities available within the District, all to help deliver and support Scouting to our Young People.

Assistant District Commissioner (ADC) Cub Scouts

We are looking for an ADC (Cub Scouts) to work in partnership with the DC to ensure the effective operation of the Cub Scout Section in accordance with the rules as laid down by The Scout Association.

Please click here for a general role description. Most opportunities will, however, lead to an individually-tailored role description depending on the applicants availability and skill set.

District Cub Leaders

To support the ADC Cub Scouts in the effective operation of the Cub Scout section. A great alternative to a weekly group commitment.

OSM Support

The District needs to provide support for Section Leaders using Online Scout Manager, together with managing the District Dashboard. This role could be suitable for someone currently not in Scouting but with IT skills. It is a role that requires little or no direct contact with Young People.

Appointments Advisory Committee (AAC) Members

The District has a small pool of adults who interview potential Leaders and those changing roles. These volunteers come from within Scouting, but also the wider community with ‘organisational’ or HR backgrounds.

District Explorer Scout Treasurer

To support the District Treasurer in maintaining the financial records for the Explorer Scouts, monitoring Gift Aid forms, preparing applications for claiming Gift Aid and preparing the end of year balance sheet. The role is suitable for someone wanting accounting experience or even someone who has retired from a finance role.

Huish Woods Active Support

The crew is highly visible when helping with car parking at big events at the Campsite, but there are wide-ranging opportunities to support the site which are not always so high profile. For instance, on Wednesday mornings some members spend a couple of hours helping with site maintenance – no two weeks are ever the same! Tasks are definitely not limited to Wednesdays and we would happily see anyone any day if they can spare time for pruning back hedges, clearing leaves, repairing fences, painting, moving logs, etc. These are ideal roles for anyone who fancies spending some quality time in a lovely location! Please spread this around to anyone you know that has time on their hands!

Explorer Scout Leader for Young Leaders (ESL(YL))

Please click here for a possible role description. The aim is to support all the Young Leaders around the District to make sure they know of all the opportunities available to them.

Media Team Members

If you are interested in video editing, photography, journalism, radio, social media etc we want to hear from you! We are actively looking to form a media team to help promote Scouting in Blackdown. Please contact us at media.blackdown@gmail.com for more information.

Early responses would be appreciated for the above roles. Please contact Blackdown DC, Pam Gaines via dc.blackdown@gmail.com or 01984 624657 / 07855 125877 for a more detailed discussion.

Please help us to support Scouting in Blackdown.
