Volunteer roles in guiding

Ways you can get involved - from working directly with girls to keeping things running in the office

There are so many roles available within Girlguiding, whether you’d like to work directly with girls or support guiding in other ways.

Whether you're new to our charity and choosing your first role or thinking about your progression as a volunteer - you'll find something to suit you. 

Using role descriptions in your team

Role descriptions help you find and keep the volunteers you’re looking for.

Role descriptions outline the purpose of a specific volunteer role, the tasks involved and the skills and attributes needed. If you're recruiting volunteers in your area, descriptions will help you show how roles are relevant to individuals.

Use our role descriptions to plan what to do next, help volunteers feel valued or show your team how they can develop their skills. Your journey through guiding is up to you!

Flexible volunteering

We know our volunteers give up a lot of their time to get involved in guiding. That’s why lots of our roles are designed to be flexible to suit different interests and availabilities. Role descriptions are designed as a guide to support volunteers in their role – but you may wish to adapt them, combine them, or spread responsibilities across several roles.
