Changing Places Changing Lives

Groundwork works across the UK helping communities find practical solutions to the challenges they face. We provide training and create jobs, reduce energy use and waste, re-connect people with nature and transform whole neighbourhoods. Step by step we’ll go on changing places and changing lives until everywhere is vibrant and green, every community is strong enough to shape its own destiny and everyone can reach their potential.

About The Programme: What is NCS?

The National Citizen Service (NCS) is a youth development programme aimed at increasing integration and social cohesion in wider society. In the summer and autumn, young people of diverse backgrounds engage in a range of hands-on, group activities.

The first phase is aimed at challenging the young people using team building, problem solving and widening comfort zones. In the second phase, the emphasis shifts toward building life skills, taking part in enterprise challenges and exploring the world of work and personal development. In the third phase, young people work together to design and deliver a social action project in their local community aimed at addressing specific local needs.

About the role

As a Team Leader you will be instrumental in creating a safe, positive and life-changing experience for a team of up to 16 young people throughout the programme, alongside one other Team Leader. You will support young people’s development on the programme by providing pastoral care, delivering inclusive curriculum sessions and guiding them through social action or community-centred initiatives.

Programme Dates

The summer programmes will run from 28th June – 8th July , and 8th to 19th August. This is a two-week programme. The first week is residential (4 nights and 5 days) and the second week takes place for 4 or 5 days in the local community.

Salary approx. £900 for the 10-day summer programme
