No experience is required - you don’t have to be able to put up tents, cook on an open fire or help build a sedan chair with poles and rope.

However if you can, that would also be a great asset to the Aylesbury Scout District.

"The person or team of people that we are looking for at the moment is someone who can motivate, encourage, lead, support and manage the 207 volunteers in the District.

"This is a fantastic opportunity to put the skills you already have to good use with the biggest co-educational organisation in the Country.

"We will provide you with some award winning training which can lead to membership of the Institute of Leadership and Management.

Plus you will gain lots of opportunities to learn, grow and have fun along the way at many Scout events; whether you find yourself encouraging the young people to kayak, helping them

to toast marshmallows over an open fire or simply rewarding our brilliant adult volunteers and young people for all the great things that they achieve."

If you’re looking for something to put on your CV, or simply the chance to be part of something truly amazing, then this is a great chance!

Nigel continued:

"We might not be asking you to be work the young people every week running their programme, but we do want you to inspire, encourage and motivate our volunteers.

"With more and more young people wanting to be involved in Scouts it’s so important that we have volunteer managers with the enthusiasm and commitment to help us to continue to grow.

"Come and be part of the Aylesbury District Team!"
