We have an exciting opportunity for a National Citizen Service (NCS) Team Leader to join Aston Villa Foundation to provide a full learning experience and support learners progress in our variety of NCS programmes.
The National Citizen Service (NCS) exists to engage, unite, and empower young people. It’s about building confidence so they can go out there and achieve their dreams, no matter of their background.

The role will require you to support, stretch and maximise the learning for all the participants throughout the NCS Programme. To be considered for the role you will need a strong work ethic and be committed to a minimum of 5 days of residential and be flexible with working hours during the second week as delivery may require evening work.
