SCOUTS South Africa (SSA) is an independent, non-profit educational movement dedicated to the development of young people in achieving their full potential as individuals and responsible citizens. Central in this programme is a continuous transference of values such as honesty, loyalty, responsibility, respect; all aimed at governing individual behaviour and the development of strong leadership skills that will equip members to be of service to others and to their communities.

The Scout programme is delivered to more than 90,000 children and youth (boys and girls) aged between 5 and 17 years throughout South Africa.  Members aged 18 to 30, can then further progress into the SSA young adult development programme.

The SCOUT Foundation is looking to appoint a Resource Mobilisation Manager for a 12-month contract position. The contract is renewable if funds permit and subject to mutual satisfactory performance.
