We’re looking for two Local Growth Officers to join our team, either based at Scouts Scotland Headquarters, Dunfermline or working from home in the East of Scotland and the West of Scotland.

We make a big difference. You could too.

We’re a national charity and a membership organisation. You’ll be passionate about the work we do helping young people to become the best they can be. You’ll enjoy forming relationships and working with our amazing volunteers and always be on the lookout for where we can make the biggest difference.

You’ll provide practical hands on support that creates new spaces for young people to join, and recruit adult volunteers to support them, prioritising areas of deprivation and underrepresented communities.

This includes flexible hours, paid leave for volunteering and public duties, and additional leave for long service. We believe in supporting and developing our people, with a focus on wellbeing and continued personal and professional development.
