Our service works with children and young people affected by their learning disabilities. Our Holiday Activity Club offers children the opportunity to take part in fun activities whilst enabling them to grow and learn. Summer Holiday Activity Clubs take place in Hawick, Peebles, Galashiels and Kelso.

You will be passionate about meeting the needs of children and young people and will strive to ensure that a programme of fun-filled activities and outings is available. You will understand the need for, and your responsibility to contribute to, a safe and secure environment.

You will have enthusiasm and drive, but also be patient and have a good sense of humour. This type of work can be challenging and so ideally you will have some previous experience of working with children and/or a similar client group.

The work can be physically demanding and includes moving and handling and providing personal care.

To allow us to provide a consistent, quality service it is desirable that applicants will commit to working between 10 and 35 hours per week throughout the 7 weeks of school summer holidays. Payment is made for the accrual of annual leave and will be explained further in the job pack. There is also the opportunity to join our relief pool for future work.

Prior to commencing, it is mandatory to attend training days where you will meet the rest of the team and learn about the service. Dates to be confirmed.

Interviews will be held over Microsoft Teams.
