Vacancy: District Commissiner

We have a fantastic, challenging and rewarding opportunity to join our Area Team.

Do you have the skills and drive to lead our Middle East District.

With full support and award winning training, you can volunteer on a flexible basis. Not only is it incredibly rewarding and great fun, you’ll learn some brilliant skills transferable to the workplace too. We welcome volunteers from every community and background. You don’t need to have been a Scout. You just need to believe in a more positive future and the difference we can make together.

Applications will be reviewed by the search group and shortlisted candidates will be invited for interview during WEEK COMMENCING 14th MARCH 2021.

The appointment will likely be announced the following week.

The search group consists of:

  • Firas Al Amri – District Youth Commissioner & District Explorer Scout Leader
  • Stewart Bell – Group Scout Leader 3rd Dubai
  • Lucy Bridge – Assistant District Commissioner (Communications)
  • Jon Gill – District Commissioner Rest of the World
  • Trevor Plowright – Group Scout Leader 5th Dubai & District Appointments Committee
  • Nathan Prince – Area Commissioner

To support the development of all our adult volunteers, unsuccessful candidates at interview will be offered feedback from a member of the search group and their current line manager will be informed of the application, so specific future development needs can be identified for the volunteer. If you do not wish for your line manager to be informed, please inform the search group at interview.
