We currently have the following volunteer vacancies within the County:


County 18-30 Opportunity Champion
Girlguiding has introduced an offering for members who are aged between 18 and 30. Within Essex West we are looking for a County Champion to be a point of contact between the Anglia Region Champions and members of Essex West within the 18-30 age group. We hope to be able to offer a range of activities and opportunities for anybody within this age group – independent of any Leadership roles that may be held.

County Archivist
We are looking for somebody prepared to look after the County Archives. The archives are all held within a storage unit at the County Office. We need somebody to continue to catalogue these items, collect new items and also to arrange for ‘sharing’ the resources held to units and at events.

Could you lead, motivate and inspire a group of volunteers?
Would you like to make a real difference to guiding in your local area?
If so, why not consider becoming a Commissioner?

Across the County we have the following Commissioner vacancies available:

Division Commissioners for:
Epping Forest South

District Commissioners for
Chigwell and Loughton (Epping Forest South Division)
Harlow Commonside, Kingsmoor, Mark Hall and Woodlands (Harlow Division)
Hornchurch West and Rainham (Hornchurch Division)
Corringham and Stanford-le-Hope (Thurrock West Division)
Upminster North (Upminster Division)

You do not need any special talent or experience, just a willingness to get to know your local leaders and units, and to promote local Girlguiding. You will gain experience as you go along, and you will have a Mentor to help and advise you for the first 6 months in the role.
