Job title: Graduate Coordinator

Location: North Tyneside

Contract: Fixed term for duration of contract – initially June 2018

Salary:    circa £24,000 per annum

Closing date: Friday 29 July 2016, mid-day

Interview date: Monday 8 August, 2016

 

National Citizen Service is a national personal and social development programme for young people aged 16-17.  The NCS Trust has awarded our client, a national youth charity, and their partner, a national youth volunteering charity, a multi-million pound contract to deliver NCS across the North East of England and maintain quality whilst achieving significant growth throughout the contract period, from autumn 2015 – summer 2018.

Reporting to the Operational Manager, the Graduate Coordinator will work in close collaboration with key partners to build on previous NCS experience, contacts and best practice to ensure the development and sustainability of social action in communities and skill development of graduates.

This role is fundamental in ensuring a lasting legacy for young people who have completed the NCS programme, and for the communities in which they live.  The post holder will have the challenge of establishing long-term, self-sustaining and user-led networks amongst NCS graduates, which have a value and purpose beyond keeping in touch. Particular emphasis will be on the strategic development and managing on-going implementations of the youth boards and graduate ambassador and mentor programmes.

To be successful in the role you will have an excellent track record of working with young people in a range of settings, including experience of facilitating group work with young people.  You will have experience of working in a partnership/collaborative arrangement with other organisations to achieve shared outcomes and also the creation of learning support materials.   You will have a solid understanding of community engagement, volunteering and social action. Excellent communication skills are essential with strong influencing skills and a practical understanding of youth participation.  A JNC recognised youth work qualification and experience of involvement in youth decision making processes are desirable, but not essential for this post.

Closing date: Friday 29 July 2016, mid-day.

Make your mark with an exciting role supporting the delivery of National Citizen Service in the North East.

National Citizen Service (NCS) is the fastest growing youth movement in a century. Under a multi-million pound contract to summer 2018, the programme is being delivered in the North East by a partnership of leading national charities vInspired and NYA – working with local organisations delivering on the ground. Committed to youth involvement, the partnership is now recruiting for dynamic Conversion Co-ordinators to join our amazing team. As part of our dedicated team, you’ll find no two days are ever the same as you help make sure more young people than ever before access life-changing NCS experiences.

The suitable candidates would be able to work flexibly across either 3 or 4 shifts per week if part time, and 5 shifts per week if full time between the hours of 9 am – 9 pm, Monday-Friday and 9 am – 5 pm on Saturday.

We require candidates to be fully flexible between these hours so candidates unable to work these shifts need not apply.

Key responsibilities:

Our team of Customer Service Advisers hold a vital role in ensuring the successful delivery of this contract as a member of the Recruitment Hub. Your primary role will be to ensure expressions of interest from young people and parents in NCS are converted to full sign ups, leading them ultimately to attend and complete the programme. You will be based in our conversion centre, making calls to young people and their parents, mainly during evenings and weekends, and ensuring records are up to date.

Closing date: Thursday 4 August 2016 mid-day.
