We are looking for a region ICE coordinator to work within the region’s international team to plan, run and evaluate the ICE cycle, providing exciting international opportunities to Guides aged 11-13.

We are looking to appoint someone who would be able to shadow the current ICE coordinator for the next 12 months to learn how international events are organised and continue the success and ethos of ICE before then taking the role on by themselves for the next three years.
