News | Jack Maxton appointed International Commissioner

We are delighted to announce that Jack Maxton has been appointed as International Commissioner with immediate effect.

Jack has held a wide range of roles in Scouting, having been a Deputy County Commissioner, District Explorer Scout Commissioner and Assistant Scout Leader as well as a member of the UK Contingent Management Team for the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Japan. He has also been Assistant Unit Leader at the Sweden Jamboree and member of the onsite Programme Team in 2007.

Most recently, he led the UK Contingent’s Marketing and Communications team in Japan this summer. This included supporting Unit Leaders and young people in sharing their jamboree experience as well as gaining media coverage across the UK. As part of this role, Jack developed the join-in-Jamboree pack, ‘Japan in a Box’, which saw Jamboree Units delivering a taste of Japan to their local Groups and Districts.

Professionally, Jack has worked as a management consultant for a number of years before becoming a civil servant in 2013. In his current role, Jack leads a team of strategists, policy makers and engineers to deliver large cross-government change programmes.

Jack says: ‘I’m hugely excited to have been appointed as the UK’s next International Commissioner. I have gained a huge amount from my international Scouting experiences and am looking forward to supporting leaders to deliver fantastic international adventures that develop young people.’

Wayne Bulpitt, UK Chief Commissioner, added: ‘I am delighted to welcome Jack to the UK Leadership Team as International Commissioner and delighted that he will be able to build on the successful strategy and reputation we have in international Scouting.’
