District Opportunities

We have a variety of roles available that you could volunteer for. If you think you could have some of the skills, you're interested in a particular role, want to chat about any specifics or have a general question then please get in touch.

District Secretary

Are you the sort of person who likes attention to detail? Can you keep up with a meeting whilst taking minutes? We're looking for a District Secretary.

Supporting the business side of the District, you'd keep us all organised, take notes of meetings, book venues, communicate with members of the public, assist with the annual membership census, be a trustee of the charity and provide general administrative support to the District and the District Commissioner. 

District Appointments Secretary

Do you have that warm welcome and bundles of enthusiasm to welcome new volunteers to the District in Malling? We're looking for a District Appointments Secretary.

You'll take control of the process of adults joining the movement, ensuring DBS checks are completed and processed, references taken and support the Appointments Advisory Committee by arranging meetings. You'll also look after reviews of adult volunteers and liaise with Group Scout Leaders and the District Commissioner on all appointments.

Group Scout Leader, Blacklands (East Malling)

A Group Scout Leader is the volunteer line manager responsible for running the Scout Group and the line management of its volunteer leaders. Blacklands Scout Group is in the heart of East Malling village and has a strong team of volunteers running Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. This group has its own premises and field, as well as a variety of equipment you would expect a Scout Group to have to provide fantastic opportunities for young people.

There is a strong functioning Executive Committee who support the Group Scout Leader in the running of the Scout Group and anyone undertaking this role would soon find themselves fully integrated in to the Group's family atmosphere.

Assistant District Commissioner - Growth and Development

We're looking for someone with a passion to help others, to ensure that Malling District grows, year on year! When we grow, we can provide top quality Scouts to even more Young People! You'll regularly meet Volunteer Managers in the district as well as getting your hands dirty, helping with the recruitment of new adults and children. You could even organise district events, or community events to spread the word further!

A knowledge of Scouts is useful, but you'll learn so much as you go! Support will be offered from the District Team, as well as the Growth and Development team at Kent Scouts. You'll keep the District Commissioner or their nominated representative up-to-date on anything about Growth and they'll point you in the right direction to help you in your role.

Assistant District Commissioner - Scouts (or District Scout Leader)

We're looking for an experienced Scout Leader who can take the lead on this section throughout the District. You'll regularly meet with section leaders from all the Groups, organise district events for the section and promote the achievement of the top award in the section.

You'll have good knowledge of the Scout programme, be able to advise and support others and give assistance to troop leaders. You'll keep the District Commissioner or their nominated representative up-to-date on everything related to the Scout section.

Assistant District Commissioner - Cubs (or District Cub Leader)

We're looking for an experienced Cub Leader who can take the lead on this section throughout the District. You'll regularly meet with section leaders from all the Groups, organise district events for the section and promote the achievement of the top award in the section.

Assistant District Commissioner - Inclusion

We're looking for a real people person who can think outside the box. As we grow, it's important to keep an eye on who is joining us and whether there are certain groups of society missing out on Scouts - that wouldn't be fair! You'll be responsible for monitoring our statistics and comparing them with local demographics and then reaching out to different groups. You'll mainly be supporting Adults in your role, but that's not to say that you won't get a chance to work with our amazing young people too!

A knowledge of Scouts is useful, but you'll learn so much as you go! Support will be offered from the District Team, as well as the Scouts national inclusion team. You'll keep the District Commissioner or their nominated representative up-to-date on anything about inclusion and they'll point you in the right direction to help you in your role.
