Be part of an experience of a lifetime

We need a great staff team to help us deliver a Jamboree to remember. From people who can run activities, to first aiders, to experts in plumbing, to those happy to turn their hand to anything – we need you!

As part of the staff team, you’ll get a warm welcome and work as part of a fantastic team of likeminded people. You’ll be part of a dedicated staff sub-camp, which will be your home for a week, and you’ll be able to soak up the atmosphere around the site. We’ll also be offering a staff catering package and you’ll have access to all the entertainment, ceremonies and facilities, plus exclusive merchandise.
