St Mary’s Hall Caretaker 

As a community-based charity, St Mary’s Hall is used by a several groups, not just the Scouts, such as the Pre-School, Guides, the Film Society, the Athelstan Players and the Carnival committee.  

The hall needs regular maintenance and for things to be fixed when they break. Some tasks, like the annual service of the boiler, require someone to find a plumber and arrange access to the building. Other tasks, like sweeping the stepsmowing the lawn and checking first aid boxes can be done by volunteers.   

The role would suit someone who is practical and well organised. Can you change a light bulb, mend a broken door or toilet seat? And are you happy to liaise with trades people and volunteers to get equipment checked and fixed?  

This role is currently being done by the Hall Manager and various volunteers so there can be a gradual handover to suit the new person.

Beaver Scout Leader, Cub Scout Leader or Scout Leader 

 The Section Leader manages and leads the operation of the Section, in particular, the planning and safe delivery of the Balanced Programme with the help of assistants, including Assistant Section Leaders, Section Assistants and Young Leaders. 

The role will suit someone with strong leadership, communication and organisational skills, who holds the Scout values of integrity, respect, care and belief. The ability to work as part of a team and to motivate others is also important. 

This requires a weekly commitment during term time, occasional commitment during the week for planning meetings and attend the Executive Committee (meets 4 times a year) and occasionally at weekends for events like camps. See the official role description below. 

There are no immediate vacancies, but we are keen to talk to anyone who is interested in taking the role in the future.

Beaver Scout Section Assistant, Cub Scout Section Assistant or Scout Section Assistant 

Section Assistants support the Section Leader and work with other Section Assistants and Young Leaders to deliver the programme. They may take responsibility for certain aspects of the organisation like managing badges or leading on specific skills like fire lighting or navigation. 

The role will suit someone with strong communication and organisational skills who enjoys working as part of a team. 

Although this does not require a weekly commitment, Section Assistants are expected to attend meetings most weeks during term time and help out at events like camps. If there are enough Section Assistants, then a rota can be arranged to ease the level of commitment required. 

 Most Sections would like more Section Assistants. Most Section Assistants join the same Section as their child because it makes logistics easier, however, it is by no means a hard and fast rule. 

For further information contact the Beaver Scout Leader, Cub Scout Leader or Scout Leader or
