Adult Recruitment and Retention Workshops

Details of two sessions available to support with building adult teams.

Everyone needs a little help with recruitment. We’re offering some tips and sharing some tools to help you promote volunteering within your group and District in two sessions on Saturday 21 October and Sunday 22 October.

Session 1 will be on Saturday afternoon at Poultec Training in Matishall, and Session 2 on Sunday morning at Acle Recreation Centre. You only need to attend 1 session.

We will be looking at what has already worked locally, along with creating adverts, fliers and cards to promote your vacancies. We’ll also be looking at different places to promote Scouting, to include community areas, businesses, social media and the parents/carers of our young people.

Included in the workshop will be how we engage with our new volunteers ensuring they feel included, welcome and know how Scouting will support them and their ongoing development. As well as talking about some of the different resources available to help you from HQ and their practical uses.

It’s free and we hope you will take lots of ideas away, along with actual vacancy adverts for your Group.

The session will be delivered by Jack Higgins from the HQ Regional Services Team, supported by County volunteers.

These sessions are being delivered in Norfolk following feedback from District Commissioners and Group Scout Leader, we encourage someone from every group books a place to take part.

Book your place on Eventbrite.
