Haslemere & District Scouts

District Appointments Secretary - added 28/1/2021

If you're a completer-finisher and an organiser who's motivated by quick results, this critical role is for you!

The Appointment Secretary oversees the mechanics of appointing scouting Leaders in Haslemere District - so is vital for keeping the pipeline of volunteers flowing so we can get them in post and making a difference quickly.

Once a Leader in a Group adds a new role for a new volunteer, our Appointments Secretary follows up the DBS check, arranges an interview panel, secures references and follows the adult through to a full appointment.

They also keep an eye on expiring DBS’s and make sure these are renewed.

It’s all run on a user friendly Scout Association database called ‘Compass’. We have 130 adult members in our District and add around 30 each year so it's not a huge role, but it's a super important one.

You don't need any recruitment or HR experience, just a desire to keep things moving and good attention to detail. 

There is plenty of training provided within our District as well as within County.

No scouting experience is required.
