Pupil Guide – city wide vacancies
£9.31 per hour
Do you have time to care?
Looking for a flexible role that can fit around your normal day? You could make a big difference to the children of Birmingham. We’re looking for caring, patient and reliable people to become Pupil Guides.
Available between 7-10 am and 2.30-5.30 pm, you’ll look after children with special educational needs while travelling to and from primary, secondary and special schools. The needs of the children cover a wide range of medical and behavioural conditions. You’ll act as a vital link to parents on their child's health, wellbeing, welfare and education.
You’ll initially cover sickness, leave of absence, extra district routes or guide a newly arranged route. So you may only be working a morning, a day or a few weeks at a time. Ideal if you need more of a work/life balance. Even better, you’ll usually be placed at a school in the area where you live.
Who we’re looking for
Sensitive to the needs of our most vulnerable young people, you’ll ideally be a good communicator, used to working with young people with special needs. We’re committed to ensuring the best possible care, so we’ll help you settle in with full training before you start.
If you have any questions, please call the Travel Assist Section:

Closing date: Tuesday 31 October 2017
