The Scout Association is the UK’s largest mixed youth organisation with more than 400,000 members in the UK and more across the world.

Our innovative spirit and ability to make things happen plays a vital role in the development of young people everywhere and these posts in particular will give you the chance to make a big impact on the lives of young people.

Young people are our future, and The Scout Association plays a vital role in developing them for adult life. Our vision is to bring Scouting to even more young people across Dorset and to reach out to communities and localities where Scouting is not yet accessible.

Use your skills to help young people gain theirs:

County Safeguarding Adviser

This role will support the promotion of a safeguarding culture within all parts of the County, offering information and advice to members on the implementation of Safeguarding, Intimate Care and Youth member Anti-bullying policies (as laid out in POR Chapter 2, Key Policies).
