Play Assistant

Donnington Doorstep Family Centre is seeking friendly, enthusiastic and proactive Play Assistants for part-time work during our Monday and Wednesday sessions, between 9.30am and 2.30pm, £9.69 per hour.

You will enjoy being part of a welcoming, fun, play-based environment for children and families and gain skills, training and experience in child care, first aid, health and safety and safeguarding.

Experience of working with children or young people is an advantage but not essential.

The services Doorstep provides have a great impact and improve the life chances of very vulnerable children and young people. We have a strong and committed staff team delivering services that are highly valued by both users and partner agencies.

Doorstep is an amazing place to work. Every day is different and packed with opportunities to meet interesting people and wonderful children.

There may also be the opportunity to work additional hours within our Pre-School covering breaks and supporting lunch times.
