“Be aspirational and think beyond the obvious to enable people to reach their full potential”

Can you make a positive difference to someone’s life? Do you have good communication and listening skills, and feel passionate about supporting other people to live a more independent and fulfilling life?

We are looking to recruit highly motivated people to support in the delivery of the Summer Stay and Play for Children and Young People with Additional and Complex Needs. 

The successful applicants will deliver fun and exciting play opportunities for 3-18year olds with additional and complex needs, ensuring all their needs are met including personal care and support during meal times.

The ideal applicant will have experience or an understanding of working with children and young people in a similar setting. In particular working with children and young people with additional and complex would be desirable.

If you are on, or are thinking about a course or career with children and young people this is an excellent opportunity to build up your CV. College and university students are encouraged to apply and spend a summer having the greatest time of your life with our children. If you have brought up your own family and are ready to give back to your community and get paid, we can offer you that opportunity. This could be your starting point into working for the Council.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to join a team who are passionate about providing excellence in care and support for our customers, and you will be a key part of the team.

If you would like to discuss this opportunity further please contact us on 01952 381317 or email

Everyone working at the Stay&Play scheme this year will be contracted to work a set working pattern each week. This will mean that you will need to be able to commit to that working pattern.

In addition to the training week, you’ll need to commit to a minimum of 2 days per week and although we would prefer you to work the four weeks of the scheme, we can accommodate requests to work just part of the scheme.

We are committed to equality and diversity. Posts working with children or vulnerable groups will be subject to an appropriate criminal records check.

Sorry but CVs will not be accepted.
