We are looking for qualified Team Leaders to coordinate and deliver the Bristol Autism Project, which involves organising a fun, safe, accessible programme for children aged 5-18 with autism and their families during every school holiday July 19-March 2020.

Ideally we are looking for 2 people, working 14 hours each ; however we are open to flexible working patterns and variance for the right applicant/s!

You should be experienced and efficient in organising and leading children’s activities, liaising with families and colleagues, and supervising a staff team.

Hours would include delivery through all school holidays (annual leave should be taken during term-time or non-working days). It is expected that the Team Leader/s would work flexibly to preferably have some time overlapping with each other and our admin assistant, but otherwise hours can be flexible to suit.

These posts are fixed until March 2020. We wish to continue with the project beyond 2020 but this will be subject to a council tendering process later this year. To apply please see the job description / person specification and return a completed application form linked below by 23rd June.
