  • Part time role - 28 hours per week
  • Located at Forestville OSHC
  • Flexible hours and arrangements, for a work-life balance that works for you
  • We are looking for a quality driven experienced Educator to join our team at Forestville OSHC as a 2IC (second in charge). The successful candidate will be able to work split shifts between the hours of 7:00am - 9:00am and 2:00pm- 6:00pm, Monday to Friday. 

    Our Out-of-School-Hours Educators are the sharp minds and friendly faces inspiring and influencing the next generation of young people. Acting as both teacher and role-model to young students from over 70 NSW schools, they provide engaging, exciting and interactive activities through our Before School, After School and Vacation Care services. As a member of our OSHC family, you'll be responsible for the safety and wellbeing of developing young minds, while supporting our OSHC Coordinators to ensure our services stay the very best they can be. You'll work closely with the children (and their parents), sharing your wisdom, support and passions with them to help them grow.

    This isn't your typical 9-5 role - and if you bring the dedication, focus and commitment, you'll enjoy the flexibility of a career in education, where you can build a schedule that works for you. So if you're excited by the opportunity of a promising career creating meaningful opportunities for young people who need them, you'll almost certainly learn a thing or two yourself.

Every day, the team facilitate and run a range of valuable programs and activities that include sport, creative arts, cooking – and many more. These roles work closely with children, parents and teachers alike, to provide meaningful opportunities for young people within a healthy, safe and inclusive environment. If you’re a driven, dedicated leader who brings energy and enthusiasm to everything you do, you’ll find the support and flexibility to explore a promising career in childcare or education.
