This role will involve managing a small team of inclusive playworkers to deliver after school and holiday play provision for the local community. This role will also involve developing the inclusive sports element of our project.

Suitable candidates will have a NVQ L3 in Playwork or equivalent qualification and will have experience of managing inclusive outdoor adventure play.

If you have boundless energy and are creative and believe in the benefits of play for all children and young people we would love to hear from you.
