Volunteering Development Officer
About the roleThe role of a Volunteering Development Office is a new one for Berkshire Scouts, and has grown from the success of employing staff to grow Scouting (through our Local Development Officer) and provide administrative support (through our County Administrator).
An area we are passionate to develop further is the support available to our volunteers, right from recruiting volunteers, through into making sure the first few months go smoothly, making sure training and support is positive and relevant, volunteer managers are supported to undertake their roles, and that we value and reward volunteers appropriately.
This is an exciting time, with lots of plans for our Volunteering Development Officer role and the team at large. Watch this space!
Meet Becky EytleHi, I’m Becky and I am your Volunteer Development Officer. I have joined Berkshire Scouts from working in Community Engagement on a new Garden Village development. Working closely with community organisations, local councils, new and existing residents and building up a team of volunteers, we ran initiatives and events to meet the needs of the local community.
Previously I enjoyed career in the charity sector, working in corporate fundraising for a variety of national charities and also in careers advice with students at the University of Nottingham.
Previously a military family, we have lived around the UK and abroad and have chosen to settle in Finchampstead, Wokingham. My two sons attend Beavers and Cubs and my husband and I are in the process of applying to become part of the team at their Group. Coming from a military lifestyle, we are both huge supporters of the sense of adventure, outdoor focus and varied opportunities that Scouting offers.
I am really looking forward to meeting volunteers that make this organisation work and hearing more about how we can support your work and commitment!
