Cuffley Scout Group. First Cuffley Scouts, Group Secretary role supporting Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Trustees

Dear parents, members, friends and supporters,

We’re excited to announce a volunteering opportunity to be part of our Scout Group as the
Group Secretary.

Are you passionate about supporting young people, fostering community, and making a positive
impact? Look no further!

About Us: Our Scout Group is an active and vibrant community that empowers young people to
develop essential life skills, explore the outdoors, and build lasting friendships.

Role Overview: As Group Secretary, you’ll be the central point of information and
communication and play a crucial role in ensuring the smooth running of our Scout Group. Our
Group Secretary assists the Group Chair and Group Lead Volunteer (GLV) in the effective
running of the Group by providing administration support. Your responsibilities will include:

  1. Record-Keeping: Maintain accurate records of meetings, events, and important
    communications;
  2. Communication: Keep our leaders, parents, and volunteers informed about upcoming activities, policies, and updates;
  3. Administrative Support: Assist with administrative tasks related to group management.

Requirements: We’re looking for someone who embodies the Scout spirit and possesses the
following qualities:

  • Good writing and communication abilities
  • Good organisational skills
  • Familiarity with Trustee Governance and/or Charity Commission guidance would be a
    bonus but not essential.

No previous experience of Scouting is necessary. What’s more important is your own skills and
personal experience as well as empathy with our mission and values.

The role is expected to require approximately four hours per month in volunteering time though this could
vary depending on frequency of meetings and events. Typically, there are 8-10 meetings per year and
occasional other events. Additionally, all adult volunteers are required to undertake a DBS check and to
complete some mandatory training modules (which are available online).

How to Apply: If you’re ready to contribute to our Scouting adventure, please contact
Diane Cracknell (GLV) (diane.cracknell@cuffley-scouts.org.uk or David Holt (Group Chair)
(david.holt@cuffley-scouts.org.uk) or ‘phone 07784 861218.

We’d love to hear from you!

And remember, being a Scout Group Secretary isn’t just a role—it’s an opportunity to make a
difference in the lives of young people and our community.
