About NCS Assistant Manager

We are currently recruiting to the position of NCS Assistant Manager. The successful candidate will work with and support the NCS Manager and wider team to develop, lead, and manage the NCS (National Citizen Service) contract for The Huddersfield Town Foundation.

The NCS Assistant Manager will play a significant role in promoting the NCS programme in schools, colleges, and other settings in the local community, to increase interest in and engagement with NCS, and to recruit young people to participate. The successful candidate must, therefore, have excellent knowledge of NCS and the associated benefits of the programme, and be confident in delivering presentations to a range of stakeholders including young people and their parents/carers.

Applicants must have relevant previous experience of working with young people in education or community settings. Educated to Level 3 or higher in an appropriate discipline, e.g., Health and Social Care, candidates must have excellent organisational and time-management skills, well-developed communication skills, and a flexible approach to work.

We receive a high volume of applications for our vacancies and as such we encourage you to ensure that your application details how you feel you match our requirements. The volume of applications received prevents us from being able to provide feedback at short-listing stage. Please ensure that your application is:

  • Fully completed
  • Tailored for the requirements of the role – Section 6 of the application form should reflect how you meet the 'essential' and 'desirable' criteria for the position as detailed on the person specification (please follow the instructions on the application form)
  • Accurate in terms of content and presentation
  • Submitted by the specified deadline

Please also highlight any factors that you would like us to consider, for example, if you have a disability or health condition that may require us to make reasonable adjustments in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.


The Huddersfield Town Foundation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

As this role is likely to involve the supervision of and work with children and young people or vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will require an Enhanced Criminal Records Check (CRC) through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

Applicants must disclose all previous convictions including spent convictions in accordance with the associated legislation. The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (Exceptions) Order 1975 (2013 and 2020) provide that when applying for certain jobs and activities, certain convictions and cautions are considered 'protected'. This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers, and if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account.

Guidance about whether a conviction or caution should be disclosed can be found on the Ministry of Justice website.

We offer a range of family-friendly and inclusive employment arrangements and we have a zero-tolerance approach to any form of discrimination.

We are committed to the redress of any inequalities by taking positive action where appropriate.

We are a Disability Confident Leader and welcome applications from candidates with a disability. We are also seeking to diversify our workforce, in particular by gender and ethnicity.
