Job Roles

Trainee | Qualified Nursery officer | Room Leader | Senior Nursery officer | Deputy | Manager

As a trainee you will join the team as an unqualified member of staff, and you will be expected to undertake in house training as well as formal learning towards a recognised childcare qualification at either level 2 or level 3 depending on your existing qualifications and ability.

As a qualified nursery officer, you must have a level 2 childcare qualification and be working towards a level 3 childcare qualification as a minimum.

For all other roles, you must have a level 3 childcare qualification as a minimum with preference given to candidates with higher level qualifications.

Preference for all roles will be given to candidates who have undertaken recognised CPD such as Safeguarding, SENDCO or Paediatric first Aid.

We will support all capable staff to work toward their next childcare qualification whether it is Level 3, Level 5, BA, EYTS or an MA. We also offer continuous training for all staff to ensure that your knowledge and practice is always kept up to date.

We are not always looking for candidates for every role within the nursery group, but we are always looking for the right people to join our team and become members of the Footsteps family.
