Chief Commissioner - Wales

We are seeking an individual with passion, vision and energy, who can lead, enthuse and inspire others to develop more opportunities for young people and adults in Wales.

The Chief Commissioner of Wales is responsible for ensuring support and leadership of Scouting in Wales, working chiefly through the Wales team, The Country Office and the 12 Scout Areas in Wales. In addition, as part of the UK Chief Commissioner's team, the CC of Wales will have a key role in shaping the future of Scouting across the UK.

About the role

You will receive direct support from your line manager, the UK Chief Commissioner, from the Wales team and the ScoutsWales Board of Trustees, as well as professional staff support from the ScoutsWales Country Office and field commissioner service.

This is a volunteer role and full reimbursement of travel and related expenses will be made in accordance with The Association's policy.

About you

You will apply your own strengths to inspire and motivate your team. You will be able to lead and manage people at a distance and in a voluntary environment and you will also contribute to strategy development.

As County Commissioner of Wales you will build up a good understanding of the roles of Area Commissioners and Area Chairmen and you will be responsible for identifying strategic objectives, speaking and presenting publicly.

You will have previous experience in delivering effective and strategic management in a professional or voluntary capacity.
