Our Aberlour Options Ayrshire service is a busy respite care unit for children and young people with special needs. As well as providing short residential breaks the service offers outreach to families and also manages and runs after school clubs and playschemes during the school holidays.
We are looking to recruit to our Easter and summer playscheme programme. Our Playscheme runs 6 days per week, Monday to Saturday, during the school holidays. You will work flexible hours as part of a team providing a programme of fun-filled activities and outings. Some previous experience in this area is preferred. Enthusiasm and a willingness to learn and work hard are essential. To allow us to provide a consistent, quality service it is desirable that applicants commit to working up to 5 days per week during Easter and summer school holidays for a minimum of 12 hours per week. There will be an opportunity to work additional hours up to full time hours. Shifts are variable and cover days, evenings and weekends. Days will be given in advance. Our playschemes run in both Ayr and Girvan and staff may be expected to work at both sites. Mandatory training dates for staff will be arranged during the month of March before the commencement of the Easter playscheme.
Depending on experience you may be offered the post of Senior Playscheme Worker, which would be paid at the higher hourly rate.
