School Streets Lead Steward (Ref: SUS3091)

£10.22 per hour (plus holiday allowance)

Location: Witney and Bicester

This very rewarding project will make streets outside schools a safer, cleaner environment, whilst also facilitating social distancing. The streets outside schools will close during school drop off and pick up times, typically restricting traffic for 30-60 minutes so that the street becomes a walking, cycling and scooting zone.

We are looking for Lead Stewards to help our in the following areas:

  • 2 Schools in Bicester
  • 1 School in Witney

We need a team of flexible and confident communicators who have experience of engaging with local community. Our Lead Stewards will be the main point of contact for the school and the Sustrans Active Travel Officer. You will head up a group of around three volunteer stewards to position signs and bollards and to inform drivers about the road closures.

You will need experience of working with schools, local authorities and communities and a genuine interest in and willingness to talk to people about their travel options.

Employment is subject to appropriate DBS clearance. The project will be dependent on current lockdown restrictions (school closures) being lifted. The hours will include weekdays between 8am and 10am and again between 2pm and 4pm depending on project requirements and availability. Full training will be provided.
