NCS Team Leader 2020


Become a mentor, sounding board and role model in one fell swoop!


Working as part of the Youth Fed Delivery team, the Team Leader will play an integral part in delivering the National Citizen Service (NCS) this Summer 2020.

As a role model and mentor, you will safely lead a team of up to 15 young people through each of the 3 phases of the NCS programme and plan/deliver activities where appropriate.

Together with your Assistant Team Leader you will engage, challenge and inspire your team; supporting each individual on their NCS journey from start to finish ensuring they reach their full potential and have a memorable and life changing experience.

You will supervise the Assistant Team Leader and co-ordinate the workload with them, considering their development in the process.

This role requires high levels of professionalism and a passion for youth work.


Mandatory training must be completed prior to your start date. The training will be a mix of face to face training and e-learning which will be organised and delivered by Youth Fed.


All candidates are required to return a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificate. Youth Fed will assist with, and pay for your DBS application if you don’t currently hold a transferable certificate. We will provide more information on DBS certificates should you be offered a role.


We require two satisfactory references to ascertain your suitability to work on the programme. Both of your references must be from someone who knows you in a professional or academic context.

Work dates

Team Leaders work across the entirety of the 3- or 4-week programme with their team from start to finish. The sub areas are where you will be based for phase 3 of the programme. There are several different programmes running at different times and in different locations. You can sign up to 2 programmes if you wish, so long as they don’t overlap.

This is a brilliant opportunity for any outgoing, passionate people who want to make a difference to young people’s lives.


We have opportunities for Team Leaders across Cheshire West (Chester, Ellesmere Port, Northwich or Winsford), Cheshire East (Macclesfield, Nantwich, Sandbach, Crewe or Wilmslow), Wirral (Birkenhead) or Halton (Runcorn or Widnes) and with go live dates starting from June and running right through the summer 2020, there’s an opportunity for everyone to get involved.
