About The Challenge
We are the UK's leading social integration charity. We work on a local level to connect people across all walks of life.
We are proud to live in a country with a rich mix of ages, cultures and backgrounds; but we've found that instead of valuing our difference we often let them divide us.
We believe in building communities where people feel at home with each other, no matter their age, income or ethnicity. We believe in building trust between all groups of people in society. We believe our differences don't need to divide us.
NCS THE CHALLENGE
NCS The Challenge is a government-backed three-part programme for 15-17 year olds which runs in the summer (June - August) and Autumn (October - November).
Young people spend three or four weeks in a diverse team, pushing themselves to the limit physically, developing new skills and designing their own social action projects.
The success of the NCS programme is dependent on the seasonal staff who support it. In 2019 we'll be recruiting over 4,500 seasonal staff working across a number of different roles to lead, mentor and inspire young people to get the most out of the programme.
Our leaders, mentors, skills practitioners and inclusion staff work in a mixture of residential and community roles. To find out more about our roles please visit our role descriptions at ncs.the-challenge.org/jobs or refer to our FAQs page.
