After School Care Manager

Required for September 2022.

Circa £7k per annum.

Here at Bedford Modern School, the wellbeing of our students is paramount, and we are looking for a suitably experienced After School Care Manager who shares this ethos and will be responsible for the safety and welfare of the students attending our after school provision.

You will be responsible for arranging and managing the provision of after school care including ensuring that each session is adequately staffed, resources are managed, records are kept and appropriate levels of behaviour are maintained.  The ability to work flexibly, plan and co-ordinate age-appropriate activities, establish priorities and meet deadlines are all essential skills.

Normal hours of work are 3.30pm-6.15pm, Monday to Friday, term time only. However, you will need to be flexible in regard to the finishing time on occasions until all children have been collected.

Applicants must have experience of supervising children or young people, excellent communication skills, the ability to promote positive values, attitudes and behaviours and an awareness of the needs of children across a variety of differing ages.

A knowledge of school policies and procedures is desirable but not essential as training will be provided.

If you feel you have the right mix of skills and experience, together with a desire to provide a caring and supportive atmosphere for our students, then we would like to hear from you. There may be opportunities to work additional hours in other parts of the school for the right person – lunch supervision, exam invigilation, etc.

Closing date for applications: 4pm on Thursday 18 August 2022

Interview date: TBC

The Harpur Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be subject to an Enhanced DBS check, references and other relevant checks.
