Are you reliable and feel you could make a difference by providing safer routes to and from school for thousands of children and parents?
At Southampton City Council, we pride ourselves by ensuring that routes to schools are as safe as they can be. This is possible thanks to our incredible staff who are members of our community, where come rain or shine, they pride themselves on the safety of children and parents, during school drop-off and pick-up times.
We are currently looking for new members to join our team. If you have the patience and people skills, when it comes to the children, parents, teachers and drivers, along with the awareness and understanding of road safety, then this role may be for you.

As you are there at the same time every day, you get to know everyone when helping them cross safely. The children are always happy to see me and I often get gifts from them, which include daisy chains and pictures. I would recommend this job to anyone.”
