Trainee Nursery Practitioner

Would you like to start your career in childcare through an apprenticeship with an “OUTSTANDING” nursery?... then this opportunity could be just what you are looking for!

At Cressington Manor Nursery we are looking for a Trainee Nursery Practitioner to join us in our “OUTSTANDING “ nursery where you will learn all about how to provide high quality childcare and engaging learning experiences for children.

As a Trainee Nursery Practitioner, you will work with our training provider to gain your Level 2 in Childcare (EYP) and will also learn the full range of practical skills and experience to become a qualified Nursery Practitioner with fantastic support from our amazing staff and management team.

Our mission is “Children at the HEART of everything we do – Childcare without Compromise” and we are looking for someone who genuinely wants to pursue a career in the childcare sector and make a difference.  Once your apprenticeship is completed with us, and if we have a vacancy, you may be interviewed for a permanent position with us, so your career really does start here!

Here’s what we can offer you as our Trainee Nursery Practitioner:

  • An amazing welcome bonus of up to £500, payable on satisfaction of scheme criteria

  • Highly competitive hourly rate - minimum wage for your age, not the apprentice rate of pay

  • Discounted childcare places for team members

  • Recognition of performance and achievement gifts

  • Promotion opportunities for those wishing to develop into a new role

  • Fantastic in-house training for your continuing professional development

  • Relaxing and comfortable ‘staff lounge’ spaces carefully designed to maximise your wellbeing

  • Regular team treats

  • A state of the art, purpose-built nursery in which children can blossom and grow

  • DBS and update service fees paid for by the nursery

  • Provision of pension scheme (auto enrolment)

To apply, you should have…

  • Have GCSE grade C or above in English and Maths

  • Be passionate about working in the childcare sector and making a difference to children’s lives.

  • Have excellent communication skills, be motivated, reliable, organised and the ability to work well within a team

  • Be motivated, reliable, and able to work on your own initiative

  • Have some knowledge of Early Years Foundation Stage and experience of working with early years children (although this is not essential)

Working hours are 40 per week.

If you think you are what we are looking for, please apply by submitting your CV today.

We look forward to hearing from you!
