Volunteering at Scouts is changing to help us reach more young people Discover what this means

Trustee Recruitment

We’re looking for Trustees to join our new Trustee Board which, from July 2024, will have an enhanced role overseeing our Scout District, responsible for ensuring it is being run for the benefit of our young people and the community we’re part of.

Each Trustee Board (every Scout District or Group has one) needs people with a passion for supporting our District to be the best it can be as Charity Trustees accountable for governance, finance, risk management and much more.

Trustees do not need to be parents or carers of existing members, but they do need a link to our community and a passion for making a difference. Importantly, the role is not about running weekly Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sections, or organising our events, camps and parades, but about supporting and overseeing those brilliant volunteers who give up their time and energy to do just that week-in, week-out.

Our Trustee Board will meet three or four times a year and host an Annual General Meeting, but effective Trustees will also volunteer for tasks in between the meetings to ensure the smooth running of the Scout Group and maximise its potential for a hugely positive impact on its young members.


You can find out much more about the role and what’s involved by reading through the
Scouts’ Trustee Information Pack online >>

Still Interested?

We’re running an open selection process where applications will be considered by the current Trustee Board. The Board will then make recommendations to appoint those selected at the Annual General Meeting of the Bradford South District Scout Council on Thursday 4th July 2024.

The closing date for nominations or to nominate yourself is Friday 21st June 2024

To be considered, please just fill in the short form below and tell us who you are and why you would like to be considered. If you still have questions, please email trustee.nomination@bradfordsouthscouts.org.uk and we will be in touch. 
Thank you.
