European Jamboree 2020 – Leader Applications

Information for prospective Leader Applicants

Leader (all roles) Application Form

Application deadline is midnight on Friday 18th January – selection is taking place on Sunday 20th January.

Applicants can come from any section of Scouting Leadership or current older Explorer Scouts , but must be 18 years of age on 26th July 2020 to be eligible to apply.

There are 4 Leader positions available (1 x Unit Leader, 1 x Deputy Unit Leader and 2 x Assistant Unit Leaders) that will be selected for the Unit that we have been granted.

We are sure that a large number of adults will want to take part in this event as a Unit Leader and so a role description and person specification has been produced to highlight what the role entails and the skills and experiences we are looking for to ensure we can deliver a unique experience for the young people attending.

The selection panel are keen that every adult in Hertfordshire that wants to apply should do so, and consider the European Jamboree experience a development opportunity for adult volunteers, as much as for young people.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
