DESCRIPTION We are a fairly large nursery with an excellent local reputation and we work hard to maintain our standards. That means we are a demanding employer, when it comes to staff performance, yet we find that good staff are happier with this than working for a more slap dash operation that want less from you and care less about their children. We know this by the number of staff that have left over the years, for various reasons, yet want to come back to us later having been disappointed with jobs elsewhere. So we must be doing something right. We try to provide good staff facilities and working conditions and you will find the Owners and Managers always on the premises with an open door to you. We operate a generous bonus scheme which allows you to increase your salary by up to £1850.00 full time and £1450 part time , just by coming to work. There is regular training given and we support, encourage, and facilitate your continued professional development. All our staff are first aid qualified the training for which we supply. All our Senior Staff and Managers have been promoted from within and whilst we don't rule out hiring from outside, that would be very much an exception. Many of our staff have worked for us for many years, some developing a career, some happier to stay within the room, so whatever you are looking for, we can probably satisfy you. We have over 100 children per day and around 50 staff so there are opportunities for either path.   REQUIREMENTS Naturally you will have at least an NVQ 2 or equivalent and a thorough working knowledge of the EYFS. If English is not your first language (and even if it is) we will want you to have a good grasp of the written and spoken language in order to communicate well with children, parents and staff as well as be able to write adequate observations and reports etc. What's more important, we will be looking for a genuine caring attitude from people with a desire to work with children who enjoy their interaction. You will also need to be a team player, able to take direction, yet also able to be self motivated and work on your own initiative and contribute to the planning. We need our part time staff to be flexible so that they are able to cover other staff as necessary. You will also be offered extra hours from time to time and although that is not a condition, we need people able to help us out when needed. The normal week will be 9 hours per day with an hour for lunch for full time, and 5 hours daily for part time, both at £7.05 per hour, for under 25’s or the "Living Wage" of £7.50ph for over 25’s  PLUS the monthly bonus .
