National Citizen Service (NCS) Programme Vacancies

Established 70 years ago, Action4Youth is based in Aylesbury and supports young people across Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes and beyond. 

Our aim is to provide fun, often transformational experiences for all young people, whatever their background, ability or disability.  We aim to both challenge young people and support them to grow as individuals, building personal confidence.  We help young people to achieve what they can do rather than what they can’t.

Action4Youth has delivered the government’s flagship National Citizen Service (NCS) programme since 2011. NCS provides young people with the opportunity to challenge themselves, overcome some of their fears and develop their teamwork, leadership and communication skills.

Action4Youth delivers NCS across the Aylesbury Vale District and increasingly in new nearby locations, including Thame, High Wycombe and parts of the Chiltern District.

In response to our growth into new areas, we are currently looking to recruit:

An NCS Project Leader to lead one of two small teams of NCS Project Co-ordinators to deliver all aspects of the NCS programme within a defined geography 

An NCS Co-ordinator to help deliver all aspects of the preparation, recruitment and delivery of the NCS programme for Action4Youth’s summer and autumn programmes. 

We are looking for individuals who have previous experience delivering the NCS Programme and who are passionate about helping young people develop new skills whilst supporting their local community.

The successful candidates will need to have the confidence to present to audiences of young people, parents and education professionals.  They will need to have the enthusiasm and passion to convey the benefits of the Programme to all stakeholders.
