    We run lunch time and after school clubs called Mindful
    Chess. We take a unique approach to teaching both chess
    and mindfulness to school children in Greater London.
    From September we will be running weekly sessions at a
    number of new schools and are hence looking for some more
    passionate individuals to join our team.

    For the role of a chess teacher you must have played more
    than just the occasional game. If you play online, please
    give us an idea of what your rating is, if you donít play
    online then please give us a clear idea of what level
    your chess is.

    For the role of a mindfulness teacher, please let us know
    about what training / experience you have with
    mindfulness and working with children.

    The sessions are generally 1 hour and take place either
    between 12:30-1:30 or 3:40-4:40pm. For some of the
    schools we run two sessions back to back for different
    age groups. We pay £30 per hour session. We donít expect
    teachers be available for a session everyday but we do
    need people that can commit to the full school year
    (September-July). Sessions are run only during term time
    at each school's premises. The schools are spread across
    Greater London, we would never expect a someone to travel
    to a school that is further than they want to travel.

    If interested or know someone that might be then please
    get in touch or pass the details of this advert on.

    Applicants will need to have a skype account as we will
    be conducting initial interviews via skype.

    Applicants please apply to teaching@mindfulchess.co.uk.
    Please could you carefully answer the 6 questions below.

    - Name and area of London you are based in
    - Online chess rating / Level of chess or mindfulness
    experience.
    - Availability (Mon-Fri) (Session1 - 12:30 - 1:30, and or
