Recruitment begins now for NINE, yes NINE, exciting and challenging roles on the County Team.

The CC says about the recruitment campaign:

"I am writing to ask if you would like to apply for any of the posts that are currently available on the County Team? These are positions that will enable us to continue to deliver our vision and plans for Scouting.

I am looking for leaders with the right skill set, but most importantly a passion for developing the role as well as being open-minded and willing to take Scouting forward in the next 5 years embracing all that comes our way.

One thing I am very keen to say at this point is that absolutely anyone over the age of 18 can apply for any of the roles. It does not matter if you have been in Scouting 3 months or 30 years, it is your enthusiasm, skills and ideas that are important."

This from the County Commissioner, Mark Edwards:

NY1A"With the support of the County Appointments Advisory Committee, I can announce that with effect from 1 September 2018, our County Youth Commissioners will swap roles, with Tom Haigh taking over the lead from Luke Roslin as follows:

County Youth Commissioner - Tom Haigh

Deputy County Youth Commissioner - Luke Roslin

This is a pragmatic change to allow Tom and Luke to commit realistically to both Scouting and their university studies. As we begin a new Scouting term, I look forward to them working with all Districts to develop further the role of Youth Commissioners and I trust that you will continue to give Tom and Luke your full support."

We will ALL support these young people in all that they do!
