About Options Ayrshire

As well as providing short residential breaks, the service offers outreach to families and is also involved in the managing and running of an after-school club as well as a busy Easter and summer play scheme.

What they are looking for....
Aberlour are looking to recruit for their Easter and summer playscheme programme. Their Playscheme runs 6 days per week, Monday to Saturday, during the school holidays.

Enthusiasm and a willingness to learn and work hard are essential. To allow Aberlour to provide a consistent, quality service it is desirable that applicants commit to working up to 5 days per week during Easter and summer school holidays for a minimum of 12 hours per week.
