The Role:

ScoutsNI has an ambitious strategy to guide our plans to extend our reach further and deeper into our communities. We want to demonstrate that Scouting is more relevant today than ever and has the ability to transform lives.

Referred to as ScoutsNI or the Scout Association, the Northern Ireland Scout Council was registered as a charity in Northern Ireland in 2015 and is part of a worldwide Movement of 40 million Scouts working for peace and global friendship.

We are seeking a Chief Executive to lead a significant programme of change and delivery.  The Chief Executive reports to the Chair of our Board and has a day to day working relationship with our Chief Commissioner. He/she is responsible for ten members of staff based at 109 Old Milltown Road and Crawfordsburn Scout Centre.

Our vision is to make a positive impact in our communities, to prepare young people to be active citizens, and to embrace and contribute to social change. That should be something that drives you too.

Through your support – working alongside our staff and volunteer team – Scouting will be shaped by young people in partnership with adults; be enjoyed by more young people and adults; and be as diverse as the communities in which we live.

What we’re looking for:

You will have a track record of leading in the management and organisational governance of a relevantly complex commercial or not-for-profit organisation.

You will have high level financial management and information technology skills.

It is essential that you can motivate and inspire others to succeed, both within an organisation and externally with stakeholders and partners. You will need to be confident that you can manage change and create a positive atmosphere and culture.

You should have a strong understanding of our commitment to youth involvement. You should be passionate about the development of young people and have ideas about what we can do to continue to make the organisation truly youth led.

We have a strategy to 2025, but we want you to be someone who can think further ahead and is confident enough to challenge us and to lead us to change. You should be someone with practical ideas and energy to grow the Movement and lead us to develop in areas where we are not currently well represented.
