Our leaders oversee the smooth day-to-day running of the programme, taking responsibility for the safety and well-being of up to 84 young people, and line managing a team of seasonal staff through the NCS programme.

Other responsibilities include:

  • Working with the Pastoral Care Lead to manage and support challenging behaviour
  • Providing performance feedback to your seasonal staff team
  • Liaise with core The Challenge staff to ensure the programme runs to schedule
  • Hold all sensitive information about participants in line with The Challenge's data protection policies.
