Are you reliable, confident and have a positive attitude?

We provide safer routes to and from school for thousands of children and parents every day.

Hampshire County Council has around 180 School Crossing Patrols, helping children cross roads on their way to and from school. Our staff are dedicated and valued members of the community. Whatever the weather, we take pride in having some of the friendliest faces in public service.

We are always looking for people to join the team. No formal qualifications are needed, just a natural rapport with children and adults, alongside an awareness of road safety. If you’ve got the people skills to deal with children, drivers, parents and teachers, we’ll train you in the professional skills to confidently manage the traffic.

Being a lollipop man is about the most rewarding job I have ever had. For a retired person or someone with time to spare, it is a wonderful way of meeting and serving the community, making lots of friends along the way. I can highly recommend this way of life to anyone.
