An exciting opportunity has arisen for suitably qualified and experienced candidates to contribute to our inaugural NCS summer programme as a Team Leader. Working with our established NCS team, you will provide invaluable support to the participants on the residential and social action projects that are integral aspects of the NCS programme.
If you are looking for a new challenge and the opportunity to work with and support the personal growth and development of young people in the 15-17 age groups, we would love to hear from you. In these roles, you can truly make a difference to the lives of many young people.
As a NCS Team Leader you will support the participants on their journey through the NCS programme, which includes one outward bounds residential week and one University based residential followed by a further two weeks of workshops and social action projects in the Kirklees locality.
You will be responsible for ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all participants within your group and will need to engage fully throughout the programme to ensure that the young people get the most from their experience. The role will support young people to develop skills for life, experience new challenges and meet new people.
Applicants must have relevant previous experience of working with young people, preferably in the 15-17 age groups, and the ability to plan and organise group activities. Familiarity with the NCS programme would be advantageous. Applicants must have a good standard of general education, an understanding and appreciation of safeguarding, and the ability to engage, motivate, inspire and mentor young people to achieve their goals.
A flexible approach to work and the ability to travel round Kirklees and neighbouring areas are essential for this role.
