About the role

The Camp Manager is responsible for the overall delivery of a unique Kings Camps experience, ensuring every child is safe, engages and makes progress, regardless of their ability. Leading and delivering high quality camps to get children and young people active, having fun and learning together.

Managers won’t be in ratio but will be required to manage and lead a team of coaches, motivating each Red Top through training and delivery to actively participate in sessions, prioritise child welfare and work collaboratively with peers. The Camp Managers role requires preparation, arranging team training, planning timetables in advance and completing relevant paperwork.

During camp, you will be onsite from the beginning to the end of the day (8am-6pm) to act as the responsible individual, first aiders and the venue point of contact for any quires, complaints and/or onsite visits. You’ll also follow operating procedures and policies, completing relevant paperwork, including risk assessments, weekly reviews, the recording of incidents and managing OFSTED requirements.

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

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

What makes a great Camp Manager?

  • A passion for, and at least 12 months’ experience of working with children and/or young people between 5 – 17 years
  • At least 12 months’ experience in a Management or Leadership position that includes delivering high quality customer service
  • Hold a childcare, sport or teaching related degree (or related qualification)
  • Experience of implementing high standards of safeguarding
  • Detail-orientated, in particular regard to following polices and health and safety
  • A vibrant and resilient team player with leadership skills to install excitement and motivation in staff and children
  • At times 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!
