The Beehive (Wrap Around Care) Supervisor

Our wrap around care facility, The Beehive, requires a committed supervisor to support and work alongside our Beehive Manager, in our After School Club and  our Holiday Club which is open during all the school holidays.

We are offering a permanent contract of 20hrs per week x 52 weeks of the year.  You will accrue annual leave.   We would like to offer £13.00 per hour which is equivalent to KR6.  There is scope to earn overtime in the club also.

Applicants will need a level 3 child related qualification and relevant child care experience.  Previous experience of working with children with additional needs would be beneficial and you must be confident to run the club in the absence of the Beehive Manager.

Hours and days are flexible, within the following times:-

  • After School Club between 2pm and 6pm (term time only)
  • Holiday Club between 8am and 5.30pm (during school holidays)

All hours to be agreed beforehand and with the Manager.

Our Beehive club is very popular with our parents and the wider community and often oversubscribed.  A good sense of humour and team work are essential.

Start date is immediate but we will wait for the right candidate.  We reserve the right to interview early.

Please call 01892 520114 to arrange an informal visit and talk with our Beehive Manager, Claire Richardson.  She will be more than happy to give you a tour and chat about the job role in more detail.  Alternatively, and once we break up on 21st July it is best to email Claire on beehive@bishops-down.kent.sch.uk
