Positions Vacant - Deputy Region Commissioners (x3)

Three dynamic and inspiring leaders are needed for the voluntary roles of Deputy Region Commissioner GWS (Operations & Youth Support), Deputy Region Commissioner GWS (Program & Activities) and Deputy Region Commissioner GWS (Group Support & Development).

The Deputy Region Commissioners will support the Region Commissioner in building a strong Region team and continuing to reposition Scouting in NSW to a new and exciting role in the community. This will require engaging with and energising the NSW Scouting community in the implementation of ambitious strategic goals, including the recruitment and retention of youth and adult members. The Deputy Region Commissioners are expected to be able to act in the Region Commissioner role at any time.

Success will be dependent on the Deputy Region Commissioners, working closely with the Region Commissioner, developing a highly skilled and motivated team of volunteers committed to the Scout Movement's values, and ensuring that the Scout program and the quality of its delivery are excellent at all levels. This will be achieved through empowering the respective teams to coordinate activities and create an environment that motivates adult members to deliver quality programs aligned with the values of Scouting and the strategic and operational plans. The Deputy Region Commissioners will support the Region Commissioner to:

  • Lead and inspire an inclusive Scouting Movement and a broad range of community and government stakeholders and partners.
  • Build a strong leadership team to inspire all members in Scouting.
  • Develop, implement and deliver agreed goals.
  • Maintain and promote an effective and generative safety culture within Scouts NSW including a robust risk based Child and Adult Safe framework.
  • Demonstrate Scouting values, exhibiting confidence in the Strategy, and with a passion for relating with and inspiring others in their journey to personal growth within Scouting.
