Four months after he stepped down as Prime Minister, David Cameron has accepted his first job and yes, he's still building the 'Big Society.'

In a letter published by The Daily Telegraph, 50-year-old Cameron has revealed he will be moving on from politics to guide an expansion of the National Citizen Service for teenagers.  

The charity, which was launched under Cameron's leadership in 2011, supports 15 to 17-year-olds prepare for working life through volunteering and community mentoring schemes. While the unpaid role is far cry from life at 10 Downing Street, Cameron said he was "delighted" to be working with teenagers on a scheme he still values.

"When I look back over six years as Prime Minister, one of my proudest achievements is the creation of National Citizen Service," he wrote. 

"From the pilot projects that I began as Leader of the Opposition to the full-scale programme that we have today, more than 275,000 young people have now taken part in what has become the fastest growing youth movement of its kind anywhere in the world."

Cameron praised Theresa May for her "vital work" with the NCS, but said it  "requires more than political leadership."

"From industry to the arts, from sport to the media, from local communities to the wider public sector, we need everyone involved in a national mission to make NCS a normal part of growing up that can give every generation a greater sense of purpose, optimism and belonging," he added.

Reports Cameron's first strategy will be to 'hug a hoodie' are yet to be confirmed.
