At Girlguiding Scotland, striving to be an inclusive and impactful organisation is at the heart of what we do. We recognise that being a great lead volunteer isn’t just about the skills that you can bring to the table, but also the unique perspectives that come from your background and life experiences.

Whilst this role is a fantastic opportunity to build your skills, we hope that you bring some of the following:

  • Be able to communicate with various volunteers and staff teams.
  • Be able to lead and work as part of a team.
  • To be open, approachable and reliable.
  • Ability to adapt quickly to situations and stay calm in a crisis.
  • Ability to motivate and inspire others from a broad range of backgrounds.
  • To be enthusiastic about helping our young members to access international experiences.
  • Have an understanding and experience of international travel with Girlguiding, in particular the development and refining of risk assessments, as well as the international REN process.
  • Ability to work remotely, so have access to internet and a computer. Experience of Teams, SharePoint and Trello would be desirable, but not necessary.
