Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting is the world’s only movement for every girl and any girl because we believe that each of them deserves to be the best they can be. Free to make what they want from the Movement, girls learn by doing, make friends and have fun. In safe, local spaces, girls develop the skills and attitudes to change themselves, their communities and our world.
The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) keeps the global Movement thriving, united and growing. We support our Member Organisations in 150 countries and giving some of their almost 10 million individual Girl Guides and Girl Scouts the opportunity to develop their leadership skills, speak out on issues that are important to them and make changes in their communities and countries.

As a successful candidate, you will have a strong background in undertaking and overseeing a full range of HR activities including some of the following:
