About the team we are recruiting to

Each day, rain or shine, thousands of children in Coventry cross the road with a School Crossing Patrol on their journeys to and from school. Patrols operate at many locations in the city and they are sited to ensure that the children and their parents are able to travel to school more safely.

We value diverse perspectives and experiences and are striving to create a workplace culture that is inclusive, is accepting of all and is free from discrimination and bias.

What is the job role?

This currently vacant job role is located on Halford Lane, outside of Whitmore Park School and the site is operated before and after school. You will be needed to work for 6 hours and 40 minutes each week, working shifts that are 8.25am to 9.10am and then again from 3.05pm to 3.40pm (times to be confirmed). You will be working alone, but with line management support if it is required.

Please note, salary advertised is adjusted to reflect the number of hours worked weekly. The current hourly rate for this job role is £10.60 an hour.

This post is exempted under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and as such appointment to this post will be conditional upon the receipt of a satisfactory response to a check of police records via Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a confident, motivated and reliable individual who is trusted to work alone and carry out their job as it should be done every day that they are required to be on site. We need someone who is able to work outside in all weathers (for fairly short shifts) as the service operates every school day, whether it’s sunny and hot or raining and windy! Uniform is provided.

This is a very rewarding job and Patrols we currently employ say that they get a lot of job satisfaction. If you think this is the role for you, please take the time to apply and join our friendly team.
