Could you be part of the Scout Shop team?

Two members of the existing team have decided to step down due to other commitments and we are splitting the manager role into two parts (rota/staff support and administration/finance) so we are looking for new members to join the team.

For the last 10 years, Hemel Hempstead District Scouts have operated a Scout Shop, supplying young people with uniform and leaders with badges, resources, certificates and much more. The Scout Shop also raises around £2,500 per year to reduce the cost of Scouting – keeping activity costs for young people down and ensuring leaders have everything they need to run successful groups!

What’s the commitment?

  • Team members are rotated on a four-weekly basis, so we’re asking you to help one evening per month, usually 11 times over the course of a year.
  • The Assistant Manager will be responsible for drawing up the staff rota, recruiting and supporting team members and popping into the shop some Tuesday evenings to find out from team members and customers if there’s any way we can improve how the shop works.

These roles are great ways to support Scouting for parents unable to help with weekly sessions.

Do I need any specific experience?

  • Team members – absolutely not… it’s just a case of offering customers the items they’re looking for, checking the order form and taking payment.
  • Assistant Manager – previous retail experience would be helpful but not essential at all.

I’m interested… what next?

Please respond to this email and you will be contacted to chat through what’s involved in more detail before you decide whether it’s for you or not.

Thanks

Russ
