Job Description

Run in collaboration with a local primary school, we are looking to permanently recruit a manager for a 'Good' Before and After-School Club.

Working on behalf of a Before and After School provision, we would love to hear from experienced, motivated, and enthusiastic managers who continually provide high standards of care and play opportunities for children between the ages of 3- 11 years old.

A person with excellent managerial, communication and organisational skills will thrive in this position. This club is run by a team of dedicated staff, who are committed in providing an enjoyable and safe environment for all children. As a 'home from home', staff supervise study, play and organised activities. The extremely well-embedded key person system helps children to form very secure emotional attachments with staff who skilfully support their play. Staff work in very close partnership with key people at the school to complement children's learning. As a result, the educational programme is extremely well planned by skilled and knowledgeable staff.

As an After School Club Manager you will be someone who:

  • Has relevant supervisory and management experience
  • Leads and motivates a team of staff to deliver high quality play opportunities in a safe and caring environment
  • Is able to monitor and evaluate the quality of the service, ensuring that all staff work within the club's policies, guidance, safeguarding and procedures
  • Will be responsible for administration and record keeping, and is competent in using computer systems, including Outlook, Microsoft Word, and Publisher
  • Has a thorough understanding of the EYFS framework, equal opportunities and special educational needs
