County Volunteer Vacancies

Scouting is constantly growing across Herefordshire and Worcestershire and this is made possible by award-winning training and one-to-one support for all adult volunteers. We make sure that everyone gets to make the best use of their skills and talents.

You can be in the thick of activities with a group of young people. You can be working behind the scenes in a management. Or you can be supporting as a trustee or helper. However you volunteer, our approach focuses on what you want to get from Scouting as well as what you can give, while respecting how much time you can offer. We also offer training, free of charge, to support all our adult volunteers.

Take a look at our vacancies below:

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
