Staff testimonials

“I clearly remember the sense of fun and the freedom to get to know the children without the pressures of targets and progress.  Children are Great!”

Justin Moss, Deputy Head at Waterfield Primary

Previous role at Pioneer: Holiday Camp Manager

“The management truly have your best interests at heart and want to see you grow as a person, not just an employee. Naturally, a great deal of importance is placed on professionalism when dealing with customers, but once the children have gone home you continue to be supported by the most amazing team.”

Georgia Davey-Sellars, Currently on Maternity Leave

Previous role at Pioneer: Apprentice (Level 2, Children & Young People’s Workforce)

“I have used everything I learnt at Pioneer in my career so far!  I now work in Project Management and the leadership, different styles of communication and personal skills I learnt have been invaluable.”

Harry Braid, Project Manager at CBRE

Previous role at Pioneer: Activity Leader

“Working at Pioneer taught me so much about behaviour management; catering for a variety of ages and abilities; making activities fun; and what it truly means to work with children. The guidance I received was endless. There was never such a thing as a stupid question and anyone was happy to help. I appreciated this so much, particularly being young and a bit unsure at times.”

Kayleigh Botha, Trainee Teacher at University of Derby

Previous role at Pioneer: Activity Leader (Part-Time)

“Being able to lead sports sessions with a variety of ages and abilities put me in a great position when it came to my teacher training.  Managing camps and leading trips off-site helped improve my organisation and management skills, which I have been able to take forward into my career.”

Alex Beard, P.E. Teacher at Thomas Bennett Community College

Previous role at Pioneer: Sports Coach (Full-Time)

“Pioneer was where I learnt how to work with children effectively, in terms of managing behaviour and transitions and activities – all while making it a fun experience!”

Lottie Batchelor, Trainee Teacher at University of Exeter

Previous role at Pioneer: Activity Leader (Part-Time)

“Working at Pioneer increased my confidence in so many ways.  Anyone who worked with me at the start of my Pioneer journey can remember how shy I was and how much I lacked in confidence.  But the incredible support I had from Day 1 – especially from my managers – definitely moulded me into the person I am today.  I will be forever grateful to Dan for giving me the opportunity to be involved with this company.”

Sam Oosterbaan, Studying Sports Management & Development at University of Portsmouth

Previous role at Pioneer: Sports Coach (Full-Time)

“Working at Pioneer for 2 years helped me grow up and realise that I wanted to push myself further.  I was able to learn and develop professional skills as part of my role, all while gaining a qualification that allowed me to move on and pursue further education.”

Ben Lee, Studying Psychology at University of East Anglia
