Job description

 "Your support has been incredible. You are probably and will always be number one in the list of people who made a positive impact on his life" KEEN London parent. Our Service Coordinators change lives - could you?

KEEN London is a small but growing charity. Our vision is that every child has the chance to enjoy sports and leisure activities and none are left behind due to disability. Demand for our service is high: currently, over 100 families across London are members of the KEEN family and we provide over 4,000 hours of supported care every year to disabled children, who we call our ‘athletes’. As part of a small team, you have the chance to make a real difference in the lives of children with additional needs.

We're seeking an enthusiastic and proactive individual to join our team in the role of Brent Service Coordinator. This position plays a pivotal role in the development and delivery of our unique, beloved 1:1 sessions for children with additional needs. We're looking for someone who is not only self-motivated and highly organised but also possesses experience working with disabled children in various settings, including play, educational, or social care, with a specific focus on autism and learning disabilities. Your passion for providing top-quality activity and support services to our children and families is paramount.

Every week during term time, children aged 5-11 attend our 90-minute KEEN London sports and games sessions, where they receive personalised support from our dedicated team of volunteer coaches. Our Brent site is the newest addition to the KEEN London community and you'll play a crucial role in its continual development. We have just completed our two year pilot and are looking for a candidate to build on this foundation.  As the Brent Service Coordinator, you'll be solely responsible for the front line delivery of the Brent service: planning, safety, and creating a fun and inclusive environment for all. This will involve working closely with our athletes and their families, supervising our team of volunteer coaches and engaging with the local community.  Additionally, you'll oversee the organisation and execution of off-site trips and contribute to the organisation of our annual residential trip.

You'll be working closely with our Head of Operations and Fundraising Manager to capture our impact and promote our services effectively. It's essential that you embody KEEN London's values of inclusivity, compassion, commitment to high standards, trustworthiness, respectfulness, accountability, and above all, fun.

If you're an enthusiastic individual with a passion for promoting fun and active experiences for disabled children, we'd love to hear from you.
