Personal Best Education (Mountbatten School Services Ltd) is an inspirational and dynamic company, where no two days are the same. The organisation's aim is to provide activities, programmes and services that enable others to achieve their personal best.

The NCS programme sees 16 and 17 year olds meeting other young people from their area, over a four-week period, learning new skills and developing their own social action project alongside local businesses and charities to make a difference to their community. Through the NCS programme, Personal Best Education enables participants to develop the skills and attitudes they need to become more engaged with their communities and grow into active and responsible citizens.

A programme this diverse requires enormous amounts of organisation and planning. An exciting opportunity has arisen for a highly efficient and organized individual; who will be able to plan, manage and review the logistics required for the successful delivery of the Spring, Summer and Autumn NCS programmes that occur each year.

This is an exceptionally demanding but rewarding role where you will be responsible for ensuring the smooth transition of young people, and the staff supervising them, through all the activities at their various locations.

Spread over multiple sites and with many different activities, it is your responsibility to ensure the NCS programme achieves contractual and county compliance for residential and outdoor activities.

Our main priority is keeping the young people under our duty of care safe, therefore as the Designated Safeguarding Lead, you will be one of the the main points of contact in any emergency during programme delivery.

Day to day activities will also include the operational planning and management of equipment and resources. You will be responsible for the management of young people's data, ensuring their safety through relevant risk assessments and ensuring all health and safety procedures are adhered to.

We are looking for someone that is able to provide excellent logistical support whilst at the same time being able to make cost savings through negotiation and tight financial control.

You will also have the satisfaction of helping young people across Hants to change their lives. An exciting package with excellent benefits, such as childcare vouchers, company pension, flexible working and generous holiday allowance.
