This Summer, over 1,000 young people aged 15-17 will be taking part in the NCS programme run by Leeds Rhinos Foundation across Leeds and beyond and we are now recruiting for Team Leaders to bring this programme to life.

NCS is a 2-week programme designed to help young people become more rounded individuals by building their confidence and developing life skills.

The programme consists of 3 phases over the two weeks of programme. Phase 1 Be Epic – young people will spend 2 days and 2 nights at a residential centre taking part in fun and adventurous activities which will vary each day. Phase 2 Live life – young people will spend a further 3 days and 2 nights at the residential centre where they will engage with workshops and skills boosting activities. After this, the participants will complete their final phase of the programme, Phase 3 Do Good. This is where they will spend 5 days planning and delivering a social action project of their design at a local hub within their community.

To help deliver this exciting programme, Leeds Rhinos Foundation is looking for enthusiastic and committed applicants to work in the role of Team Leader. Team Leaders will work alongside an Assistant Team Leader to guide a team of 16 young people through their NCS experience.

In their role, Team Leaders will have to encourage, motivate and inspire their team to get the most out of their NCS experience. To do this, candidates will need to be confident and engaging whilst leading their team by example. Where team members face challenges on programme, it will be the task of the Team Leader to provide guidance in the form of supportive and constructive advice.

NCS is an experience of a lifetime that has the potential to change a young person’s outlook and future. As a Team Leader, you will therefore get the chance to inspire the youth of today by acting as a positive role model. To help achieve this goal, Leeds Rhinos foundation will provide training to support all successful candidates excel in their role.
