GSL Vacancy – Galgate

Group Scout Leader (GSL) Vacancy at Galgate Scout Group

It has been a busy few months for the Group since it opened at the end of January and we have quite rightly focused on getting our Beaver and Cubs sections and their new leaders up and running.

However, 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.

The GSL appointment is made by the Scout 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 start and growing 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
