Part Time
Yellow Birds Play Academy is looking for a fun, enthusiastic qualified play worker or unqualified play assistant to join our team.

The job is split into two shifts each day, the first early in the morning and then a long gap before returning for the second shift after school. The job therefore is only really suitable for someone who lives within easy travelling distance to Chingford and or Highams Park.


Our successful candidate will be paid dependent on qualifications and experience. Benefits include accumulative holiday pay and a pension.


Regular morning and afternoon shifts during the school term time (38 weeks per year):

8am-9.00am and 3.30pm-6.00pm. The time between shifts is your own to spend how you wish.

Person Specification:

First and foremost you need to love caring for and playing with children as we are a play-based setting. Experience working with children in a school or quality childcare setting is desirable but not essential. You need to have tons of energy, a positive attitude and be prepared to turn your hand to just about anything. As part of a team of 3 you will need to join and in some cases lead fun and games in a group of up to 28 children aged 4-11 years.


Your main responsibility will be to ensure that the children are safe and happily engaged at all times. You will also help to set up and put away equipment and toys, set-out tables and chairs, serve a simple snack, interact with parents and, with appropriate training, provide first aid to the children where required.
