National Executive Committee

Volunteer Non-Executive Directors

Scouts Australia are now seeking Expressions of Interest from motivated professionals to join our recently restructured National Executive Committee (NEC). 


  • National role
  • Iconic organisation
  • High profile NFP

As part of a revamp and restructure of our National Executive Committee (NEC), Scouts Australia is now seeking Expressions of Interest from keen and motivated professionals to add their expertise to our team.

Scouts have branches in each state and territory and supports nearly 1,400 Scout Groups with 56,000 young people, as well as 16,000 volunteer Adult Leaders and supporters. We are part of the global movement of over 50 million Scouts worldwide. Operating under a Royal Charter in a federated model, Scouts Australia is the national body of Scouting and is responsible for setting national policies and rules, the youth program for young people, and the training curriculum for Adult Leaders. It is also responsible for the Registered Training Organisation, the Scouts Australia Institute of Training, and for overall brand, marketing, and public relations coordination.

The National Executive Council (NEC) effectively acts as the Board and is responsible for governance, financial management, strategy and policy.

To complement the existing skillset of the NEC, we are seeking to identify individuals with experience in the following areas:

  • Government Relations
  • Public Relations and Marketing
  • People and Culture

We are actively seeking diverse representation on the NEC and would encourage applications from young professionals (under 30) and people from all backgrounds and cultures, from throughout Australia. Prior Board experience is not necessary, but a strong desire to help guide the direction of one of the largest youth development movements in Australia is.

These are unpaid volunteer roles, and it must be noted that all Scouts Leaders and management are required to undertake Police and Working With Children checks prior to appointment.

Additional information and specific selection guidelines regarding the role can be requested by emailing necrole@scouts.com.au.

Expressions of Interest should include a brief cover letter and CV. Applications will close 30 September 2019. Interviews will then be conducted during October.
