Could you show your stripes and be a World Scout Jamboree Unit Leader? Apply Now.

We’re so excited that Greater Manchester West has been allocated a full unit made up of 4 patrols to become part of the UK Contingent to the 25th World Scout Jamboree in Korea during 2023.

That means we need to recruit 4 adult volunteers to become the Unit Leadership Team who make sure that our 36 young people will be empowered to be bold and brave to make the most of the life shaping experience the World Scout Jamboree will provide.

We’re supporting the UK Contingent’s vision to be the most inclusive UK Contingent to attend a World Scout Jamboree. There should be no unnecessary barriers to anyone becoming part of our Unit Leadership Team.

  • Never been to a Jamboree before? – that’s OK!
  • Not an Explorer Scout Leader? – absolutely no problem
  • Never been on a plane? – step forward tiger!

The UK Contingent is not shying away from challenging the perceptions of who an adult jamboree volunteer is, so if you’re prepared to Think bigDream wild and Act together why not leap at the opportunity to apply to join our team?

All members of the Unit Leadership team are expected to demonstrate and advocate our Scout values through their leadership and infuse the UK Contingent’s vision into local actions and plans.

The safety and wellbeing of everyone attending the World Scout Jamboree is paramount, the Unit Leadership Team will ensure that the Unit is supported by and operating in accordance with our safer Scouting policies and guidelines at all times. Our Yellow Card is an example of this good practice.

This is an adult role, and considering prior experience, the UK Contingent advise Unit Leaders, Deputies and Assistant should be at least 18 years old by 1 January 2022.
