Vacancy with Barnardo’s

Barnardo’s is recruiting sessional Play Workers to join their team across north, east and west Wiltshire, providing fun activities for children and young people with SEND aged 6-18.

Staff work flexibly; there is no guarantee of regular work but hours can be adapted to suit your own commitments. Training will be provided and you will be supported by experienced members of the team.

Barnardo’s welcomes people of all ages and experience. They are keen to have a diverse workforce which reflects the backgrounds of the many young people who access their services.
