We Are Hiring: Exciting Roles with Southmead Development Trust

With staff changes and exciting progress with projects, we are currently looking for new members of staff to join us here at the Trust, where we take our staff’s welfare and wellbeing seriously, and strive to be a leader in fair working culture.

Like many organisations in our sector though, our staff team is under-represented by people from minoritised backgrounds. We are actively addressing this, and we strongly encourage applications from people from minoritised backgrounds.

Go to our website at southmead.org to read how we support communities to thrive, and for full details and descriptions of the roles on offer below:

  • Youth & Play Manager

We are sad to soon be saying goodbye to our fabulous Youth & Play Manager Will, who is stepping up, and far away, on a tropical adventure for a role in the music scene.  We’re keen to meet our next Manager for our brilliant Southmead Adventure Playground (The Ranch), could this be you or do you know anyone who could fit the bill?  We’re looking for someone who sees success as children and young people flourishing, someone with extensive experience of working with these age groups, and who is enthusiastic about planning and delivering a diverse range of activities for families in Southmead?

  • Play Worker

Also for The Ranch, we are looking for a new Play Worker to join our superb team.  Someone who is passionate about seeing the needs of children and young people prioritised, and who believes they are a valuable part of our community. Based on the needs of our families, this person will work closely with our new Manager to help to prepare and lead play sessions in an engaging way, and also be able to respond to a range of different needs from our Ranch children.  For full details click HERE
