Hampshire County Council has around 250 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.
Five great reasons to work for us
It’s a hugely rewarding role, helping your local community get to and from school safely every day.
It fits perfectly around other commitments as the hours are usually 8–9am and 2.45–3.45pm.
You’ll be a road safety role model for young people, and there can be lots of opportunities to get involved in other road safety projects in schools.
We offer term time work with a good hourly rate, above the minimum wage.
We provide a full uniform to protect you from all weathers – no worries about what to wear each day.
Being a School Crossing Patrol (or lollipop) gives me a great deal of satisfaction, allowing the children and others to cross busy roads safely, but also receiving the cheery thank yous and kind words of appreciation from the children, mums and the school team
