Career Goal: University Lecturer

My experience with NCS has been amazing. I never predicted such enjoyment or to have gained so much from the experience. I’ve been a Mentor and recently finished my role as a Lead Mentor for Northamptonshire. It’s been an extremely rewarding role that’s given me valuable leadership experience.

Working with so many people from different backgrounds makes you realise how fortunate you are to be in a role where you can give them an experience like no other. The fact we’re all in the same boat for that journey makes it all the sweeter.

Advice

Enjoy every minute of it. What you put into that experience is reflected in how the young people respond come the end. For those 4 weeks you’re the most important person they know – you’ll be tired, but it’s so worth it when you see the journey those young people go on.
