Job Opportunities for Veterans
I am asking for your assistance, we have been tasked with recruiting seasonal staff for the NCS Summer Programme. I will outline the seasonal roles we currently have for wounded, injured and sick veterans. Based in professional sports clubs predominantly football nationwide these roles are part of the team that supports the NCS programme for young people aged 15 to 17. Opportunities include community-based, residential and office-based roles, and can last from four days to four months! The veterans are going to be at the heart of NCS delivery. We’re proud of the Sporting Force veterans from last year who motivated, lead and inspired young people on their NCS journey their success in the pilot made this year possible. The success of NCS wouldn’t be possible without the passion and dedication of the Team Leaders and staff. NCS saw the potential in the veterans and want them to make up a large portion of the work force going forward.
Vacancies are aimed at ex-forces WIS veterans – Working as part of a team, the team leader roles will have responsibility to support young people during the NCS programme.
This includes taking young people on overnight residential experiences where they will be both supporting and delivering a range of activities. They will also be expected to support planning and delivery of a project in the community working alongside other external agencies.
The NCS programme takes place in the Spring, Summer and Autumn and we are looking for staff that are reliable, trustworthy, motived, previous experience with working with young people is an advantage but training is given so not essential. Although, we all know that the armed forces is based on teams and training younger members,
The successful applicants will be available to work evenings, weekends and stay overnight on residential. The jobs start late July and run to early September. Training will be over 2 to 3 days in May. Positions will be offered on a casual basis. All relevant training will be provided. Weekly wages are approx. £450
