National Citizen Service volunteers wanted!
NCS are seeking Youth Project Managers to oversee the running of multiple programmes in summer 2018. We are keen to establish an alumni referral partnership with your Scout Network.
The Challenge is a leading social integration charity with an ambition for developing strong and resilient communities.
As the government’s lead provider of the National Citizen Service we deliver a summer and autumn programme for 15 -17 year olds across Birmingham, Warwickshire and The Black Country, with the ambition of providing young people with skills for work, life and adulthood. NCS is a huge youth movement that has empowered young people and next year we will work with over 40,000 young people nationally. We are looking for inspirational professionals to invest in these young people in summer 2018, offering well paid positions through fixed term contracts.
Our Project Managers are essential for delivering our programme and mission. The key responsibilities of the role is managing staff, existing relationships with local community partners, overseeing logistics and ensuring NCS is delivered to a high standard.
Whilst I am recruiting specifically for Project Managers we have a variety of roles available. Please watch this short video to hear about the experiences of some of our staff:

Blue Cross opportunities
Free talks are being offered by Blue Cross, the charity dedicated to helping sick, injured and homeless pets during term-time to Guiding and Scouting groups.
They have offered a national free education service to children aged 5-12 since 2005. Using their network of fully-trained and DBS-checked volunteers they have seen over 86,000 children and young people last year. Their talks are not a fundraising initiative but are part of their programme of information and education.
The programme is particularly appropriate to areas such as Animal related activity badges. Talks can be given on subjects such as:
• Responsible Pet care
• Being safe around dogs
• Pets at Christmas
• The history and work of the Blue Cross Pet charity.
Some of their volunteers have temperament-assessed dogs with them, and all carry a number of resources to help make the message of the Blue Cross a fun and interesting experience.
Availability of talks can be arranged by contacting Sue Malin, Education Marketing Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
More information on responsible pet care and a booking form can be found at www.bluecross.org.uk/education
