The NECS 100 Programme
The NECS 100 Programme aims to generate exciting and varied employment opportunities for individuals who have recently graduated from university, recently left school or college or those looking for a career change.
The name came from the original brief – to create 100 new roles, offering positions to create development and experiential opportunities for individuals to progress their careers and to bring talent in to NECS – supporting the recruitment challenges faced by developing colleagues as part of the workforce plan.
One of the main drivers of the NECS 100 programme is our social purpose: ‘To make our own direct contribution towards reducing health inequalities, by creating jobs and generating wealth for the communities we serve.’
The programme includes three different types of opportunities:
- Graduate Programme
- Graduate Internships.
The roles provided are inclusive and reflective of how different people learn and different levels of experience and qualifications. It’s important to ensure that despite the roles being developmental in nature, that they are not exclusive to any one age, demographic or socio-economic status.
As an organisation with an increasing national footprint, we have created roles across the North East, including in Durham, Newcastle and Middlesbrough, as well as Leeds, Manchester and London. The programme helps to develop individuals through work experiences and training, with the further potential prospect of securing permanent positions.
Opportunities have been created in the following services:
- Business Development
- Capacity Tracker Services
- Data Management
- Human Resources.
The programme provides a variety of training and self-development sessions to enable colleagues to gain the support, skills and personal insight in to being effective in their role.
NECS 100 training and development courses:
- Continuous Improvement
- Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion
- Developing your leadership skills
- Interview skills
- Presentation skills
- Project Management
- Action Learning.

The programme was the innovation of NECS’ Managing Director, Stephen Childs: “We take our social purpose, to create jobs and generate wealth for the communities we serve, very seriously. So we are so proud to be able to offer these employment and training opportunities to people who may have been wondering if the chance to realise their potential would ever come.”
