Adult Appointment Process

The appointment process in Scouting helps us to make sure that we appoint suitable adults into volunteer roles that are right for them. Whether you want to be a Leader or Manager, Trainer or Administrator, Skills Instructor or Executive Committee Member, the appointment process aims to make sure that you take on a role that suits your availability, skills and interests.
