Become a District Commissioner

The search is on for new District Commissioners for Ealing & Hanwell, Hayes and Harlington and Harrow & Wealdstone Scout Districts, and we need you to think about anyone you know who would thrive in this role! We are looking, also, for someone to join the DC team in Pinner & Headstone 

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. 

What next?
There are several ways in which you can contribute to the search for a DC. If you feel you have the skills, ability, enthusiasm and motivation to fulfil the role of DC, or if you know someone who you think should be considered for this role, please contact a member of our search team using the details at the end of this article. (Please note you may submit more than nomination and those who are nominated will be contacted and asked if they are interested in applying for the role).
We will also consider a 'team' nomination or other opportunities to share the role.
