Vacancies & Opportunities



In order to continue to move the county forward, the county team is looking to expand as well as seek to fill existing vacancies.

Please do take time to look at the various roles and see if you or someone you know would be ideal for the role. There is the possibility for roles to be shared so if people come as a “double act” they can be considered together. 

Section advisers for Rainbows / Brownies / Guides / Rangers

Be a champion for your section!

- Raise the profile of your section in the county and help leaders to liaise and support each other

- Plan and build a team to run a county section event 

- Help maintain your section’s presence on the county Facebook page by encouraging units to provide photos

-  Make your section visible to the public. Perhaps this could be through using the new Girlguiding SWE region S.H.A.R.E. challenge – perhaps you could get divisions to choose a challenge and complete it all at the same time?

We often have events and opportunities where adult members and volunteers can get more involved in guiding. You can commit as little or as much time as you want - from one-day and weekend events, to week camps. Whatever you're looking to do, there's always something to do in Girlguiding!
