About the role

Join The Challenge, the UK's largest provider of NCS, this summer and become a role model for a team of 15-17 year olds throughout our youth and community programme.

NCS (National Citizen Service) is a goverment-backed initiative with a mission to equip 15-17 year olds with the confidence, skills and support they need to make a real difference in their communities.

Team Mentors lead groups of young people through the NCS programme, encouraging them to bond as a team and fully engage with the curriculum. Our Mentors are responsible for the health, safety and pastoral care of their teams throughout the 3 or 4 week programme, and will be supported by the Pastoral Care Lead in managing challenging behaviour and integrating young people with additional behavioural and/or emotional needs.

Other responsibilities include:

  • Leading a range of evening activities with other Team Mentors for up to 84 young people.
  • Lead visits to community partners and charities, and support your team as they design and deliver a meaningful social action project.
  • Empower each of your team members to develop a range of new skills and reflect upon their own progress and development.
  • Follow The Challenge's safeguarding policies and procedures.

This partly residential role is perfect for a highly motivated and enthusiastic self-starter, looking to gain invaluable youth work and leadership experience. The role may require long working hours and night shifts during the residential weeks of the programme.

Person specification:

  • Experience of working with young people
  • Ability to manage and motivate a group of people through a range of activities
  • Experience of working in a fast-paced environment
  • Ability to facilitate or deliver activities to groups in an engaging and inclusive way
