Job Board


Welcome to our Job Board!

If you have a passion for working with children and young people with additional needs and disabilities, we want to hear from you! Whether you are starting out in your career, need a voluntary placement or you already have skills and experience and are looking for a rewarding role, we have a position for you.

Here at Play Inclusion Project we have many opportunities, from Volunteering to paid worked during our holiday clubs! We love supporting those who are seeking to gain more experience, and welcome the consistency of regular volunteers, who then gain paid worked during our holiday clubs. This consistency is essential for our children and young people, and allows for great teams to form!

If you are  interested in volunteering with us, please contact hayley@playinclusionproject.org.uk or ruby-may@playinclusionproject.org.uk for more information.
