The County Commissioner is a key volunteer leadership role within Scouts with responsibility for providing outstanding management and support for the eight Districts within the County. The primary focus for the County Commissioner is to ensure that Scouting is able to reach every young person in the County; open to all regardless of faith, colour or social background, because we believe Scouting has the ability to change lives. This is achieved by leading the team of eight District Commissioners, and other County appointments as well as working with the Regional Services Team (employed staff) to provide enough places to meet the demand for Scouting, and by ensuring that every youth member has access to a high quality balanced programme that is challenging, relevant and rewarding.
The initial length of appointment is at the discretion of the Regional Commissioner, through discussion with the appointee, and is usually for a period of three years initially up to a maximum of five before a formal appointment review. County Commissioners may complete a maximum of two terms of five years, so no more than a total of ten years in the role. Renewal and continuation of appointment is at the discretion of the Regional Commissioner and appointment reviews may be conducted at any time at the request of the role-holder and/or Regional Commissioner.
