Roles

Want to work for us?!

Applying for a job with Oxford Active could be the best decision you ever made!

If you love working with children or young people, are planning a career in teaching, coaching or simply want a rewarding part time job, we have plenty of opportunities for you.

Oxford Active runs After School Clubs, Holiday Camps, Outdoor Adventure Camps and English Language Schools. Although most of our roles are part time – after school in term time, full days in the school holidays, plus some evening and weekend work with our Language School – occasionally full time roles at our Woodstock Head Office do come up.

We have a flexible, creative attitude to recruitment and there are lots of opportunities to combine roles and get experience in different parts of the company, from working with very young children to older children or teenage language students and young adults…..

Oxford Active originally started with one holiday camp and one after school club 15 years ago. Since then it has grown and developed into other areas of the industry.

Active Camps specialises in Holiday Play Schemes for children aged 3-14 years. These are based in numerous locations across Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Warwickshire, Bromley and Surrey.

Active Plus is a series of sessions and workshops which are delivered by specialist coaches and trainers within their field. Children can learn new skills in a fun-filled, stimulating environment!

Active Clubs is a provider of before and after school care clubs in a number of schools across Oxfordshire. Caring for primary school children after school and before using engaging activities.

Active Adventure focuses on introducing children to the great outdoors through various outdoor activities and adventurous pursuits.

Oxford Spires Language School provides integration and summer school programmes for international students in local schools to help improve their English.

WHY WORK FOR US

TRAINING 

We support and encourage all our staff to undergo training, for example, First Aid, Lifeguarding, Archery, Safeguarding and more.

WORKING ENVIRONMENT

We love giving people their first step in a career working with children and young people.

ACTIVE ROLES

Want to avoid the infamous desk job? Work with us and you can avoid it for as long as you want to! And if you want to change we may be able to help with that too.

TEAMWORK

Wherever possible you will not work alone. We find the most enjoyable work is done working alongside others. All our sites have an emphasis on teamwork and creating an environment you can’t wait to get back to.

PROGRESSION

All of our staff are considered for roles with more responsibility before we look outside the company. If you have the right attitude you could start in an entry-level post and end up running the company. It’s happened before!

FLEXIBILITY

We are not one of those corporate companies; you’re not just a number to us. If we can help you work around your uni schedule or another job, we will!
