Staff

We are keen to hear from you if you love working with children and enjoy being part of a committed team. In return, we provide a very competitive salary, excellent training opportunities, and future career development. Within the clubs, various term-time and flexible roles are available within breakfast club (7.15am-9.00am) or after school clubs (3.00-6.30pm), or our preschool (8.30-4.00pm) and anything between 3 and 20+ hours per week are available.  

We regularly have Playworker positions arising at our clubs in Mortimer, Burghfield and Silchester and provide on-the-job training and promotion opportunities. Prior experience of care/playwork is not always necessary as training and support are provided during an induction period and beyond.

If you have qualifications in Playwork/Childcare, we would be interested in considering you for a Deputy Playleader or Playleader roles when vacancies arise. We do help with and encourage training for NVQ levels 2 and 3 in Playwork. To express your interest in working with us, please complete our contact form. A copy of our Job Applicant Privacy Notice is available on request.

Start an Oaks Club in Your School

We would be very pleased to hear from you if you are considering how to provide wraparound care at your school, and would be happy to have an initial discussion with no obligation. We have experience of starting clubs from scratch, and also of replacing existing wraparound care provision (offering employment, training and flexible opportunities to existing staff).

As a Community Interest Company, there are additional benefits of partnering with us, as value is returned to the schools and communities in which we operate.

We employ local staff, invest substantially in training and development and regularly host student volunteers for their Duke of Edinburgh awards. We take care to invest in the development of the clubs and our staff and each year we donate any surplus to the charitable organisations within the schools.
