NCS Programme Support Worker

£16,246 - £20,409 per annum

Fixed term until December 2017

Torbay

As a NCS Programme Support Worker you will play a big part in helping to implement a vital programme aimed at empowering young people from different backgrounds to make a positive contribution to society.

The National Citizen Service (NCS) is a flagship programme at the heart of the Government’s vision for building a Big Society.

After a successful pilot period, the programme continues to bring together 16 and 17 year olds from different backgrounds.

The NCS aims to support participants’ personal and social development and help them develop the confidence; skills and attitudes they need to take on active roles in their communities and develop themselves for their own future.

Our aim is to be at the forefront of formulating and delivering this essential programme.

This is a key role within our Catch22 South West team and reports directly to the NCS Operation Manager.

As a NCS Programme Support Worker, you will:

  • Assist in the recruitment of young people from a diverse range of backgrounds and enable them to engage, participate and develop within the NCS programme
  • Help organise the delivery of the NCS programme and act as an ambassador for Catch22
  • Devise and deliver residential weeks to ensure that NCS aims and objectives are met and provide participants with a challenging experience that fuels personal and social development
  • Engage and build positive relationships with young people and their parents/carers in order to provide effective support on a one-to- one or group basis
  • Ensure programme content is relevant to the local community and builds on existing relationships with partner individuals and organisations

To succeed, you must have a minimum of 5 GCSEs or above, or equivalent, with experience of working directly with young people from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Catch22 is a forward looking social business; a not-for- profit business with a social mission.

We have been at the heart of public service delivery for over 200 years, designing and delivering services that transform disadvantaged lives and build stronger communities.

In 2014/15, we worked with over 33,000 people across every stage of the social welfare cycle.

Our reach gives us unique insight into the challenges facing disadvantaged people today. 

No agencies please.

Closing date: Monday 20th February 2017

If you’re successful you will be required to consent to relevant checks by the Disclosure Barring Service and the young people you’ll be working with may have a say in your appointment. Equal and diverse, we see the potential in everyone.
