Please note, a Scouting background is NOT required for the position!
We are looking for a self-starting, motivated person who excels at building relationships, enjoys sales, marketing and providing excellent customer service. If you have skills in marketing, management, budgeting, event planning, sales, fundraising, customer service, and are comfortable with public speaking and interacting with diverse audiences, you should consider taking the opportunity to become a professional Scouter. A self-motivated individual with solid time-management skills and strong organizational skills will be successful in this role.
District Executives are a diverse group, sharing a dynamic career offering independence, achievement, and stability. The District Executive is the manager of a designated territory (called a district) consisting of multiple counties or population centers within the Greater St. Louis Area Council’s 63 counties. We are looking for someone to take ownership of growing the district in the key areas of finance, membership, and volunteer development – this is not a clock-in clock-out type of job. This position provides a flexible schedule, ability for remote work, and involves seasonal travel. If you want to make a difference and are energetic, thoughtful, highly personable in nature, have a positive attitude and values exceptional service, quality work, and personal relationships, this may be the career for you.
