Do You Want to Get Paid for Doing Something Rewarding This Summer?

Essex Boys & Girls Clubs is a youth charity working in Essex who are delivering the National Citizen Service (NCS), a government-funded youth and community programme across South & West Essex this summer.

We are looking for seasonal staff to join our team, supporting young people aged 15-17 to push themselves, help them gain an idea of what they want from their future and give back to their communities as part of our 2 and 3-week programmes.
Our summer staff are key to making NCS a success – they are the ones that elevate our programme out of the ordinary, ensuring that every member of their team of young people has the experience of a lifetime… This is an opportunity not to be missed!

All staff members will receive comprehensive training before programme and then support to lead groups of teens throughout their NCS experience.

All roles will involve a mix of residential and non-residential work with Phase 1 of the 3-week programme being residential and the rest of the programme non-residential; all NCS activities will be based within Essex.
