The role of a District New Volunteer Champion
Our District Adult Volunteer Champion acts as a 'broker' for the District by keeping records of the current vacancies within the District, prioritising needs and placing the right volunteer in the right role.
Key to the role is working with our Group Scout Leaders and Commissioners to identify and maintaining a list of vacancies in the District. This will enable you to easily place a new volunteer when they make an enquiry to join.
Remember: This role is not about actively recruiting adult volunteers or running local recruitment campaigns; it’s about placing new volunteers in Groups and working with our Group Welcome Champions to introduce and welcome the people who have offered their time to volunteer with us. But of course, we always welcome and encourage local recruitment initiatives and events.
