Work With Us



Play Workers (applications close 9am 11 June 2018)

The Toy Library is now recruiting a team of sessional play workers for our new Next Steps Project. Get your application pack by emailing or calling us on 0115 9753898. If you have the skills, experience of working with 5 – 13 year olds and boundless enthusiasm for outdoor play, you could be just the person we’re looking for.



Volunteers are welcome at the Toy Library as they bring us new skills and perspectives and boost our contact with the local community we serve.  We can offer opportunities over a broad age range and cover both indoor and outdoor play.  As a volunteer you can expect to have a valued role in our organisation.  We expect all staff to work positively with volunteers and actively involve them in their work.

Many of our staff began as volunteers. Plus of course, volunteering with children is fun, rewarding and there’s never a dull moment.  Whether you have just a few hours every few weeks or can make a regular commitment to us at a session, we’d love to hear from you. You don’t necessarily need experience but you will be asked to an informal meeting with a member of staff and be subject to a criminal background check which we will arrange and pay for.   We will tell you everything you need to know when you come and see us.

To find out more about any of opportunities to get involved call us on 0115 975 3898
