National Citizen Service (NCS) Team Leader

Location: South East London & Kent
Salary: £720 - £1170 (depending on length of programme)
Contract Type: Part-Time
Closing Date: 01/06/2021

This summer around 1000 young people aged 15-17 will be taking part in the NCS programme run by Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) across South East London and Kent. NCS is a 3 or 2 week programme designed to help young people become more rounded individuals by building their confidence and developing life skills.

The 3 week programme involves a week away at an outdoor activity centre doing all the fun activities that you would expect, High Rope, Low Ropes, Raft building and Rock Climbing, followed by a week of engaging workshops hosted daily in the local community . After this, the participants will plan and deliver a social action project of their design.

The 2 week programme consists of a week of engaging workshops, and a week of social action – it doesn’t have a residential week.

To help deliver this exciting programme, CACT is looking for enthusiastic and committed applicants to work in the role of Team Leader. Team Leaders will work alongside an Assistant Team Leader to guide a team of 16 young people through their NCS experience.

In their role, Team Leaders will have to encourage, motivate and inspire their team to get the most out of their NCS experience. To do this, candidates will need to be confident and engaging whilst leading their team by example. Where team members face challenges on programme, it will be the task of the Team Leader to provide guidance in the form of supportive and constructive advice.

NCS is an experience of a lifetime that has the potential to change a young person’s outlook and future. As a Team Leader, you will therefore get the chance to inspire the youth of today by acting as a positive role model. To help achieve this goal, CACT will provide training and support to help all successful candidates excel in their role.
