What's it like being a Play Captain?


  • It's a lot of fun! You'll meet FAB people and develop positive relationships with your co-workers and the children on the Play Streets.

  • It's hard work! You'll have to work on a team, work outside in ALL kinds of weather. You'll be held to high standards like: excellent attendance and punctuality, positive communication, being a positive role model and collaborating with your co-workers. We believe that play can be professional.

  • It will be a FAB first job; for more than 80% of our Play Captains it's their first job.
