Play Lead

Works alongside: The Community and Cultural Commissioning Team
Working Hours: Part-Time 21 hours a week (3 days) – including every Sunday 10 -4
Salary: £29,000 (pro-rata) £17,400 actual
Location: 28 Commercial Street, London, E1 6LS
Contract: Permanent

The Role
The Play Lead will join the communities and cultural commissioning team. Working alongside team members who support activity in the community centre, both those led by community members and those facilitated by specialists within the team. The community centre hosts a wide variety of activities on a weekly basis including older peoples fitness sessions, youth group meetings, art and drama activities, a mother and baby group, ESOL conversation club, IT support, and intergenerational activities. In addition the team leads the borough wide Linkage project, runs a befriending scheme and is coordinating community commissioning for the local Heritage Action Zone.

You will need to be experienced in play, and in working in a way where you share power and control with children and their parents. You will need to be able to work with and celebrate people who are unused to having a platform or being listened to without trying to shape their message or take credit for their achievements. The people we work with in the local community tell us they value working alongside people who share their lived experiences. As such we particularly welcome applications from systematically marginalised communities, Black people and People of colour, Disabled people, those who identify as LGBTQIA, working class people and migrants. You’ll be part of a friendly, can do and social justice obsessed team who love to collaborate.

You’ll be our expert on Play, and will shape our work in this area – though you’ll have a keen collaborator in our Head of Services who is a qualified Playworker, and who like you is passionate about it.
