GSL Vacancy, 11th Morecambe

Group Scout Leader (GSL) Vacancy at 11th Morecambe Scout Group

As you may know the Group has been without a Group Scout Leader since Val Vose stepped down last year. Catherine Marsh has been supporting the Group on behalf of the District since then, but it is now time to look to the future and appoint a Group Scout Leader who can ensure that they build on the work the leaders have begun and ensure the group continues to go from strength to strength. I’d like to place on record my thanks for the support that Catherine has provided over the last year.

The GSL appointment is made by the District and I would now like to start the search process for this role. You will appreciate that it is important to have the right person in this role who is acceptable to both members of the Group and the District.

I have attached a nomination form along with a role description. This factsheet may initially appear to be somewhat daunting, but it really isn’t, and contains information about the role and the process. The role is primarily that of management and you will see from the role description that it isn’t essential to have experience of volunteering in the Scout movement. Please focus your attention on the skills of the person you wish to nominate, rather than whether you think they will be available to take on the role. At this stage, we are looking to generate a list of possible candidates, so that we can approach them and discuss what is involved and whether they would be able to help. Self-nominations are also welcome.

Please do give this serious consideration as I’m sure, like me, you wish to see the Group’s excellent reputation and success continue in the years to come. I would be grateful if you could return your completed nomination form to me by the 9th June 2017.

Should you wish to have an informal chat about the role, or about someone you feel may be suitable for the role then please feel free to contact me: jon.minshull@westlancsscouts.org.uk

With best wishes,
Jon Minshull
Deputy District Commissioner
