DC Worcester

Help support our continued success!

The search is on for a new District Commissioner (DC) for Worcester District Scouts, and we need you to think about anyone you know who would thrive in this role!

Do you know someone who:

  • can inspire and enthuse
  • applies strategic thinking to a challenge
  • could build and lead a team of key volunteers
  • is resourceful and energetic
  • believes in developing young people and volunteers in your area?

The role

The role of DC is rewarding and is an opportunity to develop yourself or perhaps someone you know. The DC will have the opportunity to meet young people and adults, whose lives have been changed by Scouting, and to inspire and help Groups grow and deliver even more exciting and adventurous activities to even more young people. Scouting is flexible and this role is open to role share within a small team.

It is not necessary to have had a management role in Scouting before as there is specific training for manager roles as well as a one to one induction period.
