Job Description

Do you have what it takes to be the next National Citizen Service (NCS) Programme Manager for a successful NCS contract in West Sussex? If so, do not miss this opportunity

For the past 4 years this extremely successful NCS programme, which brings together young people from different backgrounds and helps them develop greater confidence, self-awareness and responsibility, has positively affected the lives of hundreds of teenagers from across the county and beyond.

It encourages personal and social development by working on skills like leadership, teamwork and communication, and helps build skills for work and life, whilst taking on new challenges and making new friends.

The NCS Programme Manager is responsible for managing the delivery of a high quality, safe and to specification programme for this local provider. Responsibilities extend to the management of operational and administrative staff, oversight of health and safety and safeguarding matters as well as operational deployment and incident management. 

Ideally, you'll have a knowledge of the NCS programme, but if not you'll definitely possess experience of working with teenagers, particularly those aged between 15-17, with an outstanding level of empathy and understanding of the issues faced by young people. In addition you possess notable people management experience, in particular management of a multi-disciplined team in a youth work environment and a proven track record of managing relationships and partnerships and the ability to communicate with people at various levels.

Does this sound like you? If so, don't delay - get in touch ASAP for more information or click apply to submit your application. 

We're waiting to hear from you.
