CEO of Koala Klubs
With 23 years experience of running children's holiday activities and running Koala Klubs for over 10 years, I feel I have a wealth of experience to welcome your children to our schemes. At Koala Klubs our focus is 2 fold: As a parent we want you to be assured that the safety of your child is paramount and is our number one focus. At the same time our focus is also on your child's enjoyment. Our schemes operate in a way that we want your child to jump out of bed in the school holidays excited that they are 'going to Koala Klubs' which ties into our KOALA CORE VALUES.
We really look forward to welcoming your children to our schemes!
Director of HR
I have been working for Koala Klubs for 10 years. I have a vast amount of experience in marketing for Koala Klubs, employing and training staff and managing some of the Holiday Schemes. I have full QTS, and a passion for ensuring that the clubs meet the highest expectations, so the children attending have an amazing time in our care. As a mother of two energetic girls, I completely understand the need of these clubs for working parents, who need to leave their children in a safe, caring environment.
For each camp we receive a large amount of applications for our Camp Managers and our other team members. We always aim to recruit staff who are local to our venues and due to our safer recruitment processes we are always able to select the best candidates worthy of being TEAM KOALA. Our selection process is rigorous and involves an in-depth interview and a task, to ensure the candidate has the correct skills-set.
All of our staff undergo an enhanced disclosure check to work safely with children and undertake a specific training programme, so you can be sure that your child is not only benefiting from the best staff, they're also in safe hands.
