We have an exciting opportunity to join Team BSO in the role of Deputy Area Commissioner (Programme).  As Deputy Area Commissioner (Programme) you will lead and manage a team of volunteers who are jointly responsible for:
  • Supporting our four Districts to deliver the full spectrum of the Scout Programme to our Youth Members. 
  • Developing and enhancing the skill set and qualifications of our adult volunteers.
  • Ensuring the youth-led strand of our development strategy is being properly implemented.
  • Delivery of Area-wide events, Area-led camps and BSO WSJ selection/management.

You will also form part of the Area Management team with responsibility to develop and carry out the Area Development Plan with your focus being on Programme delivery. 

Close liaison with the other Deputy Area Commissioners (People & Perception) will be necessary to ensure we are delivering policy, advice and guidance with a joined-up approach.  This is a truly exciting opportunity and a great chance to be involved and really make a difference to volunteers and young people across the Area.   If you would like to share this role with someone else, please let us know – that works too!
