Lead volunteer for girl experience

We’re looking for an existing volunteer to become our new Lead volunteer for girl experience!

The role

This is a key role for Girlguiding Scotland. With the support of a staff partner, you’ll champion the experiences for girls and young women in counties and across Girlguiding Scotland so that they have the opportunity to develop and to take part in fantastic experiences that encourage them to stay in guiding.

This role will also be a member of our operational board. This is the group responsible for designing, coordinating and reporting on the delivery of projects which will help us deliver our strategy.


About you

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.


The key skills and attributes that we’re looking for in our lead volunteer are:

  • Excited to be part of shaping the future and responding to challenges.
  • Eager to champion the experiences of girls and young women at Scottish level.
  • Experienced in coordinating teams to successfully deliver projects.
  • Experienced in planning and delivering events or activities for girls.
  • Keen to support our counties to develop their events, activities and resources for girls and young women.
  • Able to think of the bigger picture for the benefit of members and potential members across Scotland.
  • Approachable and open minded, and able to work with others.
  • Committed to our values.


We’re for all girls and we want Girlguiding Scotland to be a safe and welcoming space for every person that wants to join us. Our lead volunteers should be as diverse as the girls that we support and inspire which is why we encourage applications from people of all backgrounds. In particular, we would welcome applications from disabled people and individuals from ethnic minority groups.
