JD Sessional Playworker- Summer 22


Sessional, up to 20 hours per week, worked across 4 days for 4 weeks

Based in Newhaven

Rate of Pay: £9.87 per hour


SCDA have an exciting programme of activities planned for the 2022 Summer Holidays. These range from forest skills, sports / play to food activities.


We are recruiting for Playworkers to come and join in the fun and assist with the delivery of the Summer. The roles are sessional e.g. as and when required and we can offer 20 hours for the week (Monday – Thurs). Then you would be retained on our sessional bank for opportunities that may come up over the year.


The activities are aimed at children / young people aged between 7 – 12 years and our Playworkers will help to maintain a safe, creative, and stimulating environment. We want every child to feel welcome and valued.


Ideal candidates will have experience of working as part of a team within a childcare setting/after school club/school/youth club.  An NVQ Level 2 in childcare and education play work is required or significant previous experience in this area. A qualification in Paediatric First Aid is also desirable.


This role would suit those working in schools as Teaching Assistants / Individual Needs Assistants who would like some additional work during the school holidays!


Ultimately, we are looking for people who enjoy, and are confident working with children and young people, understand their varying needs and want to help them have a fun summer break.


The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check, and being a car owner and driver is preferred.
