Leading Voice - Spokeswoman Team

Open / 12.30pm - 5.00pm / RHQ

Join our Team

We’re looking for confident and energetic members aged 14 - 25 to join our new Leading Voice team. As spokeswomen, this new team will help us be the voice of girls and young women in our Region.

The team members will represent Girlguiding North West England through a range of media opportunities such as interviews in print (newspaper, website), or via appearances on radio and TV and social media, which reach people across the UK.


Training Day

It is compulsory for each member to attend the training day on Saturday 20 May at our Region HQ.

The spokesperson training is designed to support volunteers and young members to feel more confident in speaking about guiding in public – whether that is to the media, local MPs or Councillors, local businesses or even the ‘60 seconds in a lift’ scenario!

By the end of the training, participants will be aware of Girlguiding’s key messages and know how to use them, understand which subjects are better to avoid in public situations and have some practice at being interviewed about their guiding lives.
