Markfield is a dynamic charity in Haringey with a community centre and adventure playground. We run play sessions and social clubs for disabled children and adults and their families.
We are looking for committed and energetic Play /Youth Workers to work on our after school clubs and holiday playschemes for children and young people with learning disabilities and autism.
This role involves driving a 16-seater minibus to and from sessions as well as working on the sessions. You must have a valid driving license that you have held for at least 2 years. You do not need any prior experience of driving a
