Continuing on the massive success of Essex International Jamboree 2012 the joint camp chiefs Paul and Karen along with the newly appointed Directors are currently looking for expressions of interest for Heads of Department and other senior roles within the different Directorates of the Jamboree. At this stage there are no role descriptions as we want to be open to any and all ideas that people might have and to skills and experiences they might bring to the event.
We welcome interest from previous volunteers as well as people who are completely new to Essex International Jamboree. Pre-event commitment will be required and location isn’t an issue. We welcome submissions from volunteers outside of Essex.
Are you unique or have experience and skills that the Jamboree could use then we would love to hear from you.
Fore more information please visit EIJ.org.uk/recruitment
Closing date for applications is 31st October 2013

A week of fun and freedom for international Scouts and Guides to meet together in Essex for an active and energetic programme of activities and opportunities.
The Essex International Jamboree is held every four years for the Scouts and Guides of Essex to experience the fun and challenge of living with a number of countries from around the world. The next Jamboree will run between the 30th July and 6th August 2016, and returns to Boyton Cross in Chelmsford to offer a whole week of activities and entertainment.
We are pleased to announce the Jamboree Chiefs for this event will be Karen Packer and Paul Walker. Both Karen and Paul worked as Deputy Chiefs for the 2012 event and are excited about taking on this joint role. "This is a great opportunity to extend the already strong links between Guiding and Scouting in Essex as we prepare for another week of international fun and friendship." commented Karen after the appointments had been made. "We are keen to impart the spirit of Scouting and Guiding throughout the 2016 Jamboree" added Paul.
