Amazing Opportunity: UK Youth Commissioner Wanted

Posted on Monday, June 16th, 2014

We are recruiting for our first ever UK Youth Commissioner. Working as part of UKHQ’s core leadership team, the UK Youth Commissioner will ensure that young people are at the heart of every decision that shapes their Scouting experience. 

They will have the passion and drive to champion youth-shaped Scouting, empowering young people to share their ideas and make an impact. 

The UK Youth Commissioner will work closely with the UK Chief Commissioner, Chief Executive and Chairman to achieve our ambition for Scouting to be truly youth-led. They will be responsible for helping us launch a range of exciting projects, including our first ever National Youth Council. 

Representing the views of young Scout members across the UK, they will work with young people, volunteers and staff to ensure Scouting answers the views, wishes and needs of its youth members.

It’s a fantastic opportunity for an individual aged 18-25 to gain valuable work experience and play a crucial role as we begin an exciting chapter in Scouting’s history. Having a Movement that is shaped by young people in partnership with adults is a key strand of our vision and our new strategy. 

By 2018, we want 80% of young people to be able to say they shape Scouting, feel listened to and are taken seriously. The UK Youth Commissioner will play an essential part in helping us to achieve this.
