This very rewarding project will make streets outside schools a safer, cleaner environment, whilst also facilitating social distancing. The streets outside schools will close during school drop off and pick up times, typically restricting traffic for 30-60 minutes so that the street becomes a walking, cycling and scooting zone.

We need a team of flexible and confident communicators who have experience of engaging with local community. Stewards ensure the safety and wellbeing of people moving in and around the area through the placing of signs and bollards, help to divert traffic and talk to members of the public. Lead Stewards will need experience of working with schools, local authorities and communities. Employment is subject to appropriate DBS clearance. The hours will include weekdays between 8am and 10am and again between 2pm and 4pm depending on project requirements and availability. Full training will be provided. 

Please quote reference number. Closing date for the receipt of completed applications is 9am on Monday 26 October 2020. Interviews will take place over MS Teams or Zoom during week beginning Monday 2 November 2020.
