Hackney is London’s most diverse, dynamic borough. Reaching from the Square Mile to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, this is an area of rapid economic growth, particularly in technology, media, fashion and other creative industries. Hackney has more green spaces than any other inner London borough; some of the capital’s finest schools; first class transport connections; excellent public services; and thriving arts, cultural and retail sectors. We seek people with ambition, creativity and commitment to ensure our economic growth provides benefits for everyone and creates opportunities to transform the lives of residents.

We are looking for individuals to join the Council’s School crossing patrol service and contribute to the safety and welfare of Hackney’s residents. We have 36 officers across the borough on 32 designated sites, and you will be central in helping school children and anyone who requires assistance get to where they need to go. You will also help serve as a face of the council being based at a fixed position each day and getting to know the local community.

The vacant posts are based in the Hackney Wick, E9 and Stoke Newington, N16 postcodes and candidates will need to live within a reasonable walking distance of the sites in order to be considered.

The post is part time, working an hour shift both at the start and finish of the school day. We are currently recruiting for three vacant sites across Hackney, and you will need to be able to easily travel to your assigned site as consistency of service in all weathers in vital. Full training and uniform is provided to ensure that you are prepared to assist your community in the appropriate way.

Employment will depend on the passing of a full medical to ensure it is safe for you to undertake the role, and clearance by the Disclosure and Baring Service (DBS) is required. An understanding of the rules for road users and pedestrians is essential.

At Hackney, we go that extra mile for our people; we offer a work environment which is stimulating, fast moving and supportive, giving you the chance to use your skills and develop new ones within a high profile organisation. If you share our values and are ready to be part of our exciting journey please apply now.
