This is a really exciting time to join Girlguiding. We have much to be proud of in our one hundred years of history, but we know that to remain vibrant and relevant to young people we must continually evolve.

We’ve begun a process of significant change: transforming the organisation so it can meet the challenges of the future by putting young people at the heart of our organisation. We’re on a mission to amplify the voices of girls and young women, so they can champion change in their own lives and the wider world; to build strong partnerships that can increase our reach and impact; and to increase the support we offer our amazing adult volunteers who deliver incredible experiences to young people across the UK every week.

The Volunteer Learning and Development team are responsible for ensuring the high-quality learning provision for our volunteers. We work in partnership with volunteers and subject matter experts to design and deliver content, oversee the content design and management of internal qualifications and support hundreds of local volunteer trainers to design and deliver their own content. As well as compliance training, we support volunteers on a broad range of topics from virtual guiding, outdoor and adventure, international experiences and leadership.

This is an exciting time to join the team as we increase our digital learning offer, expanding both our eLearning and webinar offer to volunteers. You’ll be responsible for the coordination of a wide diversity of projects, including the design and creation of high quality learning materials to support the development of our new leadership training programme and other key learning areas. 

You’ll be working closely with volunteers and relevant teams to ensure the effective planning, implementation and evaluation of projects, so that we can continue to deliver high quality learning experiences to develop inspirational volunteers who provide excellent experiences to girls and young women across the UK.

Girlguiding values the differences that a diverse workforce brings and is committed to inclusivity, and to employing and supporting a diverse workforce. Girlguiding is proud to be part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme, a member of the Business Disability Forum, and a member of Time to Change. While Girlguiding’s young members may be women only, our staff team is mixed gender. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds.

We’re committed to supporting our staff to achieve a good work-life balance and offer flexible working options wherever we reasonably can. All staff are required to carry out our online health and safety training and complete a DSE risk assessment to ensure we can provide the support you require.
