We will aim to offer positions as close to the successful applicants home address as possible, based in the following areas:

- Orpington
- Chislehurst
- Mottingham
- Bromley
- Beckenham

If you have a childcare qualification to at least NVQ Level 3 standard or equivalent and experience of looking after children of all ages, you could be just the person we need to keep our kids safe and happy. As well as managing the day-to-day staffing, finance and facility issues, we'll look to you to create and develop some exciting new children's activity concepts. After all, at the end of the day we want them going home saying they've had a great time. To succeed, you'll need to be friendly and approachable, with great interpersonal, organisational and time management skills. You'll need to have knowledge of Child Development, OFSTED, Safeguarding (Level 3 DSO qualified), Health and Safety and First Aid. Not afraid to get your hands dirty, you're a genuinely fun, 'can-do' team player, ideally with some managerial experience gained working in a childcare facility.

If you have a childcare qualification to NVQ Level 2 standard we also have a Deputy position available, as well as deputising for the Childcare Leader in their absence, the role of Deputy will see you make sure the day-to-day operational efficiency of the team is of the highest quality and fully compliant with the relevant rules and regulations. You'll also at times take on specific responsibilities relating to the specialist age group you are working with, and have knowledge of child development, OFSTED and Safeguarding. You already have experience of working in an environment where children learn play and enjoy leisure activities. What's more, as well as your love for looking after and entertaining children aged between 4 and 11 years old, you recognise the importance of the smooth running of a child friendly environment. A great team player, you're friendly and approachable, unflappable and willing to work shifts that include Breakfast and After School Clubs.
