Dorset County Council is looking for people to help children get to and from school safely.
And school crossing patrols, or lollipop ladies and men, provide safe crossings for anyone negotiating roads, not just children.
Cllr Peter Finney, cabinet member for the environment said, “We need to fill permanent and casual posts across the county. This job can suit parents with school-age children or active retired people.
“People can be assigned to just one crossing or as a relief that can cover an agreed area within Dorset.”
David Greenlees has worked as relief patrol for almost 20 years and has covered sites all over the county. He said, “I have loved working as a relief patrol and have met so many wonderful people in my time. I fell upon the job by chance when I walked into a drop-in session one day, and decided this could suit me as I was semi-retired at the time.
“Since then I have worked as and when needed at so many different locations. The road safety team have been fantastic to work for. If you are looking for casual work I can highly recommend the role.”
