Job Security with a permanent full-time position at Winston Hills
Our Out-of-School-Hours Coordinators are the organisational gurus that make sure our OSHC services are safe, effective – and always fun. Acting as both facilitator and role-model to young students from over 60 NSW schools, they design and maintain inclusive, welcoming and engaging spaces through our Before School, After School and Vacation Care services. As a member of our OSHC family, you’ll be responsible for the safety and wellbeing of developing young minds, while drawing on your leadership experience to support and guide our team of OSHC Educators. You’ll also work closely with the children, and their parents and schools, to ensure they’re set up for growth and success.
This isn’t your typical 9-5 role (they don’t call it Out of School Hours for nothing) – and if you bring the dedication, focus and commitment, you’ll enjoy the flexibility of a career in education, where you can build a schedule that works for you. So if you’re excited by the opportunity of a promising career creating meaningful opportunities for young people who need them, you’ll almost certainly learn a thing or two yourself.
This position will be working block shifts, Monday - Friday from 10:00AM - 6:00PM.

These roles work closely with children, parents and teachers alike, to provide meaningful opportunities for young people within a healthy, safe and inclusive environment. If you’re a driven, dedicated leader who brings energy and enthusiasm to everything you do, you’ll find the support and flexibility to explore a promising career in childcare or education.
