    National Citizen Service - trustees wanted

    There have been critical comments about the National Citizen Service in the past - time to get a Scouting person involved?
    see advert below, the 3rd Trustee looks made for a Scouting person.

    Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport – National Citizen Service Trustees

    “National Citizen Service (NCS) is a youth programme that runs across England and Northern Ireland. We exist to engage, unite and empower young people, building their confidence so they can go out there and achieve their dreams, no matter where they’re from or what their background is. Our programme is managed and supported by NCS Trust, our central team who are constantly working to make sure we deliver the most impactful experience we can to as many young people as possible. National Citizen Service is seeking three Trustees with experience and skills at a senior level in the following areas: experience and demonstrable senior leadership in the parliamentary/public sector (1 Trustee); human resources specialist with commercial experience and a particular focus on people strategy, culture and coaching high performance teams (1 Trustee); [and] an education leader with strong links to schools and young people (1 Trustee).”

    Time: 5-10 days per week.

    Remuneration: “Reasonable expenses”.

    Closes: 09 August

    Not really, the first two are managerial roles, and the links to school and education would be espoused by most leaders...
