Holiday Action Assistant Leaders & Group Leaders (Professional Services)

We are looking for casual holiday-time staff to come and help us to deliver our hugely successful Holiday Action programme.

Experience of teaching, sports coaching or working in a school environment is preferable, but not essential. Above all, we are looking for candidates with enthusiasm, motivation and an ability to engage and communicate effectively with children.

Our holiday programmes run during every school holiday all year around for children aged 4 to 14 years. Our typical working hours are 9.00am – 4.30pm with some early/late shifts also available on select days, but all shifts at 7.5 hours. However, the Early Years Manager role has a working pattern of 8:00am - 4:45pm, with a 1 hour unpaid break. 

Please note - applicants will not be required to work during every school holiday – but are welcome to work in whichever holiday periods they have available. All applications will be considered.

Hourly rate: These rates include the cost of living pay increase applicable from September 2023.
