Grants and funding facilitators

We are looking to recruit a team of volunteers to help support local scouting with research and the completion of applications for seeking grants and funding.  Seeking additional and new forms of funding is essential to help scouting to continue to grow and flourish.  We know that funding exists locally for scouting, but also that there is a unique skill required in completing a successful application form.

This small team of specialist volunteers will work alongside the Scout Grants Committee and the volunteer structure to help support local scouting seek funding opportunities. The roles will largely involving operating remotely as a virtual team providing support as necessary.  


Key dates

The closing date for nominations is 30 September 2017 at 5pm. It is likely that interviews will take place by phone. Shortlisted candidates will be notified of the date(s) and given an outline of the selection process.


Please download and send the completed application form to Mark Tarry by email at by 5pm on 30 September 2017. When completing the nomination form please provide as much relevant information as possible as this will assist the DUKCC in considering who may be best suited for the role.  It may be helpful to include experiences outside of Scouting that are relevant to the role such as in professional or other volunteer capacities.
