About Options Ayrshire

In addition to us having a short residential breaks service, our Out of School Club is based outside of Ayr within a building at Mosshill Industrial Estate.

We offer a safe, nurturing and explorative environment for young people to come and play either after school or on a Saturday morning that gives their families and/or carers a rest from their caring role. During that break, children enjoy a range of fun activities and experiences with our staff who specialise in taking care of children with additional support needs. In addition to this, we run a busy Easter and summer Holiday Activity Club which staff are encouraged to participate in also.

What we are looking for...

Working as part of the staff team you will ensure that the highest level of physical and emotional care is provided to the young people using the Out of School Club. Experience of working with this group of young people is highly desirable.
