Jobs at Islington Play Association


IPA believes that Play is what children do when they are allowed freedom to explore their world 

Working at IPA is challenging but fulfilling. We have high expectations of our staff and we support them to be the best that they can be. We like you to continue your personal development and will try to help you to go on to further study and gain new experiences as part of your work with us. Staff need to be flexible and adaptable as no two days are ever the same when you are working with children.

If you think children’s play and learning is as important as we do then we want you to work with us or become one of our trustees!
