Are you looking for a part-time job that gives you the chance to serve your local community? If so, we might have the ideal opportunity for you.

Staffordshire County Council operates a School Crossing Patrol Service to assist school children and pedestrians on their journey to and from school. We regularly have vacancies for School Crossing Patrols throughout the County and would be pleased to hear from you if you may be interested in doing this essential work. The duties are term time only and are therefore ideally suited to anyone who prefers to take school holidays.

Post holders will receive full training and uniform, and payment throughout the year.

We currently have vacancies for School Crossing Patrols, and Relief School Crossing Patrols such as: Local Relief Patrols - vehicle not essential, and Mobile Relief Patrols - vehicle and full driving licence essential.

School Crossing Patrols operate twice daily during term-time.  Duty times usually fall between the following times: 8am - 9am and 3pm - 4pm, and each duty can last from 30mins up to 1 hours in length, but each crossing location is unique and has its own specific operating times (some locations may fall outside of these times, please check with the School Crossing Patrol team for individual crossing information).

  • School Crossing Patrols and Local Relief Patrols – Grade 3; hourly rate: £8.74 rising to £9.01 (pay award pending)
