Dawn Until Dusk are recruiting for a Deputy Manager at our club within Bottisham Community Primary School. The hours are from 7:30am - 9.00am and 3pm - 6pm Monday - Friday term time only.

As a Dawn until Dusk playworker, your job role will be fun and you will never have the same day twice! You could be supporting a child with challenging needs, dressing up as a superhero, supervising a bouncy castle disco, helping children to play more harmoniously together, or you could be feeding a baby lamb! The role is undoubtedly the most varied role you will ever come across.

You will be responsible for the children within your setting and will work closely with your manager and other staff members. You will also have the opportunity to further enhance your professional development by having the opportunity to enrol in Level 2, or Level 3 childcare courses 95% funded or Level 5 via student loan.

The children’s safety and welfare is paramount to us here at Dawn until Dusk, however, messy activities, being silly, dancing around and acting a fool, mud kitchens, bouncy castles and hearing nothing but children’s laughter is also very important to us.

If you feel you are a fun and caring individual, but have a playful attitude to life and you have the same ethos as us why don’t you apply today!!!

If this sounds interesting, please email joinus@kidsdawntildusk.co.uk or telephone 01234 930505 for an informal chat. You can find our online application form at https://kidsdawntildusk.co.uk/work-with-us-at-one-of-our-settings/application-form-dawn-til-dusk/
