Team leader job opportunities available now or from Septermber 2019

JOB OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE! MAY 2019

Due to one of our key managers moving overseas at the end of the school year, we are looking for one or possibly two team leaders/deputy team leaders to join our team.  There are two roles available:

  • Breakfast club team leader – This involves arriving at The Bridge at 7.15am Monday to Friday, setting up, serving breakfast, greeting parents, ensuring children have a substantial and healthy breakfast, liaising with colleagues, clearing away, escorting the children over to school and passing on any messages to teachers as necessary.  Breakfast club hours run from 7.15am to 8.50am.  This role could, but not exclusively, suit a parent with children attending Halstow Primary School. 
  • After school club team leader or deputy team leader – This involves arriving at 3pm (finishing at 6pm/6.30pm) to set up the play space, collecting the children from school, escorting them to one of two after school club venues, serving snack, engaging and playing with the children, understanding that each child is unique and comes to club with their individual needs and wants, ensuring the smooth running of the afternoon liaising with team members and delegating where necessary, coordinating the pickups of children from extracurricular activities and facilitating excellent communication with parents, carers, the school and other stakeholders.

We are looking for one or two people who are very caring, friendly and approachable, who are confident at interacting with children and parents, working in a team and assuming responsibility for the setting as necessary.  The ideal manager will already have substantial experience in looking after children (this could be professionally or your own children), have a background in education, childcare or playwork and be highly attuned to child-focused play and to the different developmental stages of a child’s physical and emotional development. 
We meet together as a management team every Wednesday from 2pm to 3pm during term-time, we have a full training session each year and induction sessions for all new staff.
We are very flexible!  These roles can be combined into one role or shared with another team member, it could be a combination of breakfast club and after school club.  All managers commit to working a pre-agreed number of days of holiday club throughout the year.  Your primary school aged children are welcome too.
We are a very friendly and mutually supportive team and we have backgrounds in teaching, playwork, Special Educational Needs, coaching and child psychology as well as in business and HR. 
Pay is generous, negotiable and is dependent on experience and qualifications.
