Play Leader

We are delighted to be partnered with a popular and reputable childcare provider to support the appointment of a Play Leader/Manager for one of their out of school clubs in East Bedfordshire.

The out of school club provides before and after school care for children who attend the Lower School on site.

Club opening hours are 7.30-9am and 3-6pm Monday-Friday, and the successfully appointed Play Leader will also have 3 hours a week of admin time on top.

In addition, there is the opportunity to work extra hours in the holiday club during the school holidays if you so wish.

As the appointed Play Leader you will hold a full and relevant Playwork or Early Years qualification to at least level 3, and you will be able to manage a small team of colleagues.

As a team you will be supervising the children who attend the club, ensuring their safety and well-being, and engaging in varied play-based activities.

You will provide breakfast and tea for the children, and you will actively hand over and feed back to parents at the start and end of each session.

Essential to your appointment is a genuine passion and enthusiasm for working with children, an honest and reliable nature, and the desire to have fun and to inspire others around you! In return, you will benefit from an hourly rate of around £9 in the first instance, with on-going support from the wider company and opportunities for training and professional development.
