Volunteer Vacancies


Below are a list of volunteer vacancies that we currently have in Girlguiding Staffordshire. If you would like more information regarding the posts please email county.admin@girlguidingstaffordshire.org.uk.

County Commissioner

The time has come for us to consider the appointment of a successor to Cat Kerr and Alison Holmes as they complete their term as County Commissioners on 20 September this year. Ideally we would like the county commissioner designate could be in place during April so they may work with Cat and Alison to facilitate a smooth handover.

This is your opportunity to nominate someone (or yourself) for this role. The nomination does not need to be a current division commissioner; therefore do think widely when identifying a suitable candidate. It is also possible to put yourself forward for the role, stating the reasons why you feel that you should be considered.

The documents below can be downloaded and the role description of County Commissioner may be particularly helpful.
