South London Scout Centre Development Team Lead
The South London Scout Centre – known by most as The Fort, is our county centre and campsite. It is loved and used by members of our groups and units across South London, by scouts, guides and other youth organisations across the country and the world, and by members of other organisations, families, and friends in our local community and far and wide.
We have recently renewed our lease with Dulwich Estates and over the coming years we will be undertaking an exciting project of major development of the centre, including, new facilities with areas and services just for our use, and areas for public hire.
Our location in Dulwich provides an excellent environment for young people and adults to thrive, learn, share and belong. Our open spaces suits many of our scouting activities but at present some of our building facilities are not adequate. With development of modern office and team facilities and a new accommodation building, bigger and better events for all our members can be achieved.
Our overall aim is to modernise the South London Scout Centre to provide well thought out, and relevant facilities which enables maximum use of our accommodation and campsite. Facilities that our users want to use all year round. A centre that is the number one choice for scouting colleagues, community groups and other youth groups, from across the country and around the world, when they visit the capital.
We’re building a team!
To drive our plans forward we need to build a team to take responsibility for the overall delivery of our redevelopment project.
A team that can:
- lead on fundraising
- negotiate with the Southwark Council and Dulwich Estates
- manage risks
- design our new modern facilities
- manage contractors
- publicise and share our plans
To put all this in place we need someone (or a couple of people), to take the lead. As the project manager you will help us build an amazing team and take responsibility for leading the project so that the team delivers the different aspects of this exciting project, so that we can provide first class facilities for scouting and the local community for the next 50 years.
