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.

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 hours of: 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).
