Dear Scouter

Appointment of new District Commissioner for Skegness, Spilsby & District.

As you may be aware Simon Mitcham is to step down as District Commissioner for Skegness, Spilsby & District.

To allow for continuity Simon will remain in post until a new DC is appointed, however Mr Robin Wright, County Commissioner, has now initiated a search for a new DC; or Team DC; for Skegness, Spilsby & District.

You are invited to submit a nomination/s for anyone you consider suitable for this important management appointment.

I would therefore ask you to give serious and urgent consideration to people with whom you work in Scouting, at your place of work, or in the wider community and identify anyone, who you believe has the qualities and skills to help lead/manage a successful District. The role of District Commissioner can be demanding, and will require a dynamic and enthusiastic individual, or Team, who can grow respect and motivate volunteers and young people. Managing health & safety, safeguarding, and driving the Scout Associations key objectives will be central to their role. There will also be a strong emphasis on succession planning for the district.

Applications for those wishing to job share will be welcome.

It is important that we identify as wide a selection of candidates with the skill sets to successfully manage the District, as possible, so your nomination is vital to the process of developing a short list for interview.
