A Typical Day in the Job

A typical day when group leading involves meeting the children at breakfast time, checking they are all kitted out and leading them on all the day's activities until around 9pm when the night duty staff take over. Group leaders are responsible for good communication with the group (and the teachers!) in break times and between activities, making sure they are happy and know where they need to be.

Robinwood only promote staff from within the company, so there are excellent opportunities for career development and promotion for the best staff at all levels right up to senior management.
