We are looking for a passionate and creative team leader to deliver a variety of play projects all year round.
You will be responsible for managing the centre’s after school provision and holiday adventure playground, catering for children aged between 8 and 16 years. You will ensure the highest quality provision, manage bookings and fees and plan for the imaginative use of the building and outdoor area. The post has a responsibility for fundraising and bid writing in order to finance imaginative and innovative ways forward for the service.
Our open access project was developed in August 2012 and now has over 300 children registered. Our after school play provision is also well attended. Our aim for the future is to further enhance and develop this vital provision for all children and young people living on the estate.
You will be committed to every child’s access to play, be a skilled, effective manager (qualified to a minimum of level 3 in a relevant area such as play or learning and care), experienced and imaginative in writing bids and actively seeking out additional funding. You must be able to work with other providers and be a strong advocate for children and their families.
We will offer you an exciting opportunity to develop and support a service through a period of change and a chance to make a significant difference to families in an inner city environment. You will be part of an accomplished team of professionals who put children’s rights first. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to grow the service, making it fully sustainable.
Visits are highly recommended. Please contact Mike on 020 8749 0909 to arrange.
