Contract: Seasonal work in summer school holidays.

Hours: Monday to Thursday 8.30am - 5.30pm (except on Mondays when you will be expected to start at 8am to set up for the week. Overtime for this will be paid)

Pay: £62.49 to £94.86 per day (plus 12.07% holiday pay), based on qualifications and experience.

Summary of Position:

The role of the Tech Instructor is to deliver outstanding, structured technology and coding activities to small groups of 8- to 14-year-olds on our Ultimate Tech Camps.

Using supporting resources and a structured timetable, you will deliver coding and technology activities to children aged between 8-14 over 4 days, with the emphasis being on participation, engagement and creativity. You will also have a pastoral role, being the group leader and key contact for the group of children on the course. There will be an Ultimate Tech Leader and Camp Manager on-site to provide support on care and parent issues.

Ideally our Tech Instructors will cover back-to-back courses across a selection of camps in their local area, e.g., Surbiton High School and Sutton High School.

Duties and Responsibilities:
  • Prepare and deliver activities for children aged 8-14, focusing on participation, skills and enjoyment.
  • Ensure all policies and procedures on camp are adhered to by yourself and the children in your care, including all health and safety, and safeguarding procedures.
  • Take a pastoral role as a group leader, welcoming new children into your group and liaising with the Camp Manager and/or parents as necessary.
  • Supervise and engage with the children outside of timetabled activities.
  • Live up to the Ultimate Activity Camp promise of 'Inspiring Children Every Day' and behave in a manner that reflects the expectations of the company throughout your employment.


  • Show the required energy, enthusiasm and professionalism for the duration of the season, acting as an ambassador for Ultimate Activity Camps and behaving as a suitable role model for children.
  • Other ad-hoc duties (equipment maintenance/ordering etc).



Essential Requirements:
  • An enthusiastic, energetic individual, who has experience in working with children and has a passion for helping young people develop their IT skills.
  • Some experience in teaching or delivering coding or IT activities, able to tailor delivery and structure according to age and ability, adapting on the day.
  • Good organisation and communication skills.
  • Problem-solving skills, and patience is required. You may have to help several individuals with the same problem one a one-to-one basis and it's important that you're able to help them through any moments of frustration with enthusiasm!
  • Someone looking for a sometimes challenging but hugely rewarding and fun job in the holidays, looking to further their career in ICT teaching or the childcare industry.


Desirable Requirements
  • Qualified, or working towards relevant qualifications, in IT teaching, Computer Science or a Digital Media related course (with programming experience). Alternatively, a self-taught individual who can demonstrate their knowledge of programming, ideally with JavaScript or Python experience, with a portfolio.
  • Hold a Paediatric First Aid (6 hour or 12 hour) qualification or be willing to gain one through the Ultimate Activity Company.
