About the role

We have Saturday clubs and youth clubs running at weekends and holiday clubs running during the summer, Easter and Christmas school holidays, supporting a wide range of children and young people with a learning and or physical disability. We provide a safe, fun and engaging place where children and young people can play, make friends, get out into their local community and develop lifelong skills in preparation for adulthood.
CamPlay clubs run in Chatteris, Ely, March, Whittlesey, Wisbech, Huntingdon, St Neots, Cambridge and Grafham Water. Our Holiday Clubs specifically run Ely, March, Wisbech, Huntingdon, St Neots and Cambridge. You can chose which locations to work in.
“My son absolutely LOVES going to club. Every session he comes out and says it was the best one yet and is already looking forward to the next one. He talks about his friends from club all the time at home and feels safe enough to challenge himself and do things he wouldn’t do at home.” – Parent.

- Reliable, motivated and able to work and lead a diverse team
