If you are enthusiastic, confident, proactive and great at building rapport with others, this could be the career move you’ve been looking for. As part of our friendly team, you will enjoy a buzzing, fast-paced and youth-led working environment.

Based in our Customer Contact Centre at Cobalt Business Park (which boasts great transport links), you’ll also be out and about presenting at events in schools, colleges and elsewhere – so expect your workdays to be varied and interesting!

Best of all, you will be helping young people to reach their potential by getting involved in the life-changing National Citizen Service (NCS) programme.

National Citizen Service is a personal and social development programme for young people aged 16-17.  The NCS Trust has awarded vInspired Education and NYA Education 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.

The Recruitment Advisor plays a crucial role in ensuring the successful delivery of this contract as a member of the Regional Recruitment and Conversion team. This role involves delivery of recruitment events and also the follow up contact with young people to sign them up to the programme.  You will be selling the benefits of NCS to young people and their key influencers (parents, teachers and youth workers) and ensure that our target audiences fully understand the benefits to taking part in NCS.  This is part of our three year regional recruitment strategy, engaging with schools and colleges to sign up over 20,000 eligible young people across the contract period.  The post holder will need energy, enthusiasm, flexibility and a creative approach to secure expressions of interest and applications from young people and be able to complete their full sign up.
