About the role

Reporting to the Camp Manager, the Assistant Camp Manager is responsible for supporting the Camp Manager in the overall delivery of a unique Kings Camps experience, ensuring every child is safe and makes progress, regardless of their ability.

Assistant Camp Managers are appointed at larger camps (with over 80 children) so you’ll need to co-lead while camp warmups and weekly events to showcase the skills each child has developed. You’ll be the point person for parents, staff and venue personnel in the absence of the Camp Manager and will deal with any queries, complaints and/or site visits.

Assistant Camp Managers won’t be in ratio but will be required to relieve coaching sessions and lunchtimes and will demonstrate good practice, energetically involving yourself in camp activities and working collaboratively with peers.

During camp, you’ll be onsite from 8am – 6pm, being available to speak to parents at the start and end of the day. You’ll be able to follow operating procedures and policies, completing relevant paperwork, including the recording of incidents, staff rota’s and co-managing OFSTED requirement.

Child safety is our number one priority, so Managers need to ensure that the welfare of children is paramount at all times, supervising children, overseeing the safe use of equipment and upholding health and safety standards and procedures.

You’ll need to be available from 8am – 6pm, Monday to Friday, during the school holidays. We’re looking for Managers to be available for the full duration of the shorter seasons, and in the summer (our busiest season) for a minimum of 3 consecutive weeks.

What makes a great Assistant Camp Manager?

  • A passion for, and at least 6 months’ experience of working with children and/or young people between 5 – 17 years
  • At least 3 months’ experience in a Management or Leadership position that includes delivering high quality customer service
  • Hold or working towards a childcare, sport or teaching related degree (or relevant qualification)
  • Hold, or willing to attend training for a valid paediatric first aid qualification
  • At time, things change, so you’ll need to be flexible with a willingness to adapt

We’re committed to safer recruitment 

The Kings Active Foundation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. Safer recruitment is central to the way we work and all staff and volunteers are expected to share our commitment to safeguarding, always creating an environment where young people feel safe and can thrive.

Staff selection process includes:

  • An interview (approx 40 minutes), via video call, which covers suitability, experience, skills, attitudes as well as the opportunity to showcase an activity session plan
  • If successful at interview, we will speak to at least 2 professional references from your work history
  • Once offered a position, this will subject to satisfactory enhanced disclosure with barred list check (or equivalent for Scottish Residents)

Ongoing training and performance evaluations will feature in the role, with structured support from your Site Manager and performance targets communicated. High performing coaches will be entered onto our staff development programme, with the aim of securing a future promotion (we actively seek to promote from within) and a priority contract for the following seasons!
