Most of the roles don’t need any previous experience, you just need to have the want, drive and enthusiasm to make things happen! Some are short-term roles, and others long-term – and if you feel you could contribute something, but not necessarily the whole role, then let’s have a chat!

Even if you haven’t had a role on a District or County team before, but you think you might have what it takes to do one of these roles – then contact Caroline Crowe on office@glsescouts.org.uk or 08444 142 769.

I look forward to hearing from you!
