Role Description

Find out more about the International Unit Leaders position
Role Category: District Role
Role Location: Warwick
Role Type: Leader

We are looking for a crack team of volunteers to lead experiences to far flung places in events designed in partnership with young people! Iceland? Kandersteg? Sri Lanka? You bring your imagination and inspiration we’ll help you make it a reality.


The events are aimed at Explorer Scouts, and we are welcoming adults from all roles, and a range of experiences to express an interest in taking young people abroad.

Whether you’d be up for leading the event, or would like to shadow a role, we want to hear from you!

Please get in touch with District Commissioner Yvonne as soon as possible to register your interest.

Apply (or nominate someone) for this position

We welcome enquiries from people outside of Scouting, as well as exsiting members who may want to explore a role with a higher level of responsibility, developing new skills, abilities and set themselves new personal challenges – all of which can be used in and outside Scouting.

All roles are open to people aged 18 and above unless otherwise indicated.

Get inspired. Inspire others.

Join over 160,000 others who, around the UK, help nearly half a million young people be the best they can be and learn #SkillsForLife.

Great reasons to volunteer

You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to volunteer with Scouts – we’ve already got him as our Chief Scout – but if you're a smiler, an inspirer, an activity planner, a great tea-maker, the best sandwich-maker in Warwick, or a really good all rounder, then you could be amazing for Scouts, and Scouts could be amazing for you.

Here are just some of the amazing reasons:

  • Share your experience and skills with young people while developing yourself
  • Have fun and meet new people in the area
  • Inspire a generation (who will never forget what you did for them)

We’ll give you a warm welcome, make sure that you have all the support you need, give you access to easy-to-understand training and resources online, and the flexibility to get involved in a way that works for you.

At Scouts, every week is different, amazing and rewarding - for everyone that takes part.
