Become a KIDSORTED Local Community Manager

KIDSORTED is building a network of Local Community Managers to curate the best activities and services for parents locally. As part of this role Community Managers join the KIDSORTED Digital Marketing Academy, where they gain in-demand e-commerce and digital marketing knowledge. We want to provide the opportunity to build a flexible portfolio career that fits around your family life – no prior digital experience necessary.

YOUR ROLE & RESPONSIBILITIES

As a Local Community Manager you are the curator for great kids activities and family related services in your areas.

KIDSORTED

KIDSORTED is a marketplace that helps parents discover kids activities like after school clubs, holiday camps and baby & toddler classes as well as family related services. We help time poor parents by providing them with a go to resource with a highly refinable search function. KIDSORTED helps parents find the best activity for their children in an efficient way so they so you have more time to play.

Parents can search by age, postcode and interest or by a week day and time so you can find something for a specific time slot. Some activities are bookable on our platform, or you can connect directly to the activity provider.

The Story of KIDSORTED

We launched in 2014 and quickly learnt that the value in our service comes from offering a comprehensive go to guide for a neighbourhood. We started in West and South West London but we are expanding fast.

Our next step is to increase neighbourhood coverage and the inclusion of kids birthday party related services. Parents told us how challenging it can be to organise everything required for parties, so we’re continuing to add value to parents lives, by connecting them to quality birthday services such as entertainers, venues, cake makers and more.

We work with Local Community Managers, local parents that help us to identify the best activities and services in their local area and to bring them to the site. Providing an opportunity for parents to have access to a flexible part time role that helps them build skills, network and earn a bit of extra cash is very rewarding.

In addition, a lot of our activity providers themselves are parents; so helping other entrepreneurs grow their business with our support is a big motivation for us. We provide marketing support and they can use our booking software to run their business on, which frees up their time to do what they love: teach kids and run their activities.
