Job Role

Do you have a passion for and the experience of working with children and young people?

Can you plan and deliver engaging play, sports, arts and crafts activities to children and young people?

If so, then look no further than Groundwork West Midlands; an environmental charity that has been delivering environmental and community projects aimed at creating stronger, healthier communities, and greater prospects for local people for over 30 years.

We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated individuals to deliver on our exciting play project in Sandwell. The Go Play Sandwell project consists of open access after-school and holiday sessions across Smethwick, Tipton and Wednesbury. Under current provision up to 18 hours per week currently available.

As part of our friendly team, you will be alert to the safeguarding of young people and children, raising any issues and concerns following the correct policies and procedures.

A full driving licence and access to your own vehicle is preferable – but many delivery venues are serviced by public transport too.

Since 2017, Groundwork West Midlands has been a delivery partner on the Go Play Sandwell programme, funded by Sandwell Council. Across three towns of Sandwell, we provide nine sessions a week offering play opportunities aimed at children aged 6-12 years old (and up to 16 with additional needs). All the sessions are free, open access, and take place after-school and throughout school holidays. Sessions are child led, and typically comprise a range of activities including, nature based, to team games through to free play opportunities.
