Are you well organised and interested in the smooth running of our Scout Group?

Each Group has an Executive Committee and the committee needs a Secretary to prepare for meetings and to help with running the Group.

The role involves:

  • Preparing meeting agendas in consultation with the Chair and circulating them.
  • Arranging meetings: booking rooms, equipment, facilities, etc.
  • Working with the Chair to plan meetings, prepare agendas, collect and collate committee reports and circulate them prior to each meeting.
  • Taking minutes at meetings before circulating to committee members.
  • Keeping an up to date record of committee membership and making changes on the Membership and Charity Commission databases.
  • Managing the annual census process and submitting returns to The Scout Association.

Useful skills and knowledge:

  • Good organisational skills and an eye for detail.
  • An understanding of committee procedures and minutes.
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Access to the internet and a computer/tablet.
  • Familiarity with Microsoft Office 365.

All our committee members are also Charity Trustees and do need to pass a check by the Disclosure and Barring Service. You will have access to a mandatory training package relevant to their role, mostly self-led so don’t worry if you think you don’t have the skills, knowledge or experience. All we ask is that you’re a team player with a can-do attitude and passionate about developing a great environment for Young People and the community to flourish.
