This role would include successfully implementing a keep-warm strategy designed to keep participants engaged in the build-up to the summer, administrative and logistical responsibility for coordinating all aspects of the programme and being the main point of contact for participants and parents prior to, during and after their time on the programme. You will work alongside the NCS Team to ensure successful delivery of the NCS experience.
