Play Worker

27 Tresham Crescent, London NW8 8TW

£25,833 - £29,796 pro-rata per annum, (actual salary £14,352 - £16,554 per annum)

Part-time role

About Us:

At Westminster City Council, we want to make our city an unrivalled place of choice and aspiration, where the connections we build among our teams, our residents, our businesses and our visitors grow ever stronger. Everyone who lives, works or visits here plays their part in, and benefits from, our borough’s continued success.

The Role:

Whether you’re working within our Bi-Borough Short Breaks team or out in the community, you’ll help us run activities for disabled children and young people. You’ll assist with care and, through play, help them develop social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional skills.

You will help us deliver our programme either on-site or within the community, include sports, games, arts, crafts and other creative activities. You’ll work with physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers and other professionals to enhance the child or young person’s development and wellbeing.

You will need to listen to each child, identify their needs, and ensure their health and safety. At times, you might need to act as a key worker for a child and their family.

Please refer to the Job Description for more information.

About You:

We’re looking for people with a keen interest in supporting disabled children. Ideally, you have an NVQ level 3 or are willing to learn. As well as this, we’d like it if you can show experience in the following:

  • working in a professional capacity with children and families whose children have multiple disabilities
  • working as part of a team
  • working in a play/leisure setting
  • working with children and families in their own homes

What We Offer:

We’re proud of the fantastic work culture and workplace environment we have at Westminster City Council. This is a one-of-a kind place where different ideas and perspectives are welcome, and where everyone has the opportunity to develop, grow and thrive.

For an informal discussion, please contact Kayleigh Lloyd on 020 7641 1492 or via email klloyd@westmister.gov.uk

Closing date: 9 October 2019.
