Location: Various locations across Northamptonshire - Northampton, Kettering, Corby, Rushden
Hours: 35-45 hours/week
Contract length: Permanent
Starting salary: In the region of £7.00-7.50/hour

We are pleased to be partnered with a well-established childcare provider who operates nurseries across Northamptonshire.

They are seeking to employ Qualified Nursery Practitioners and are paying in the region of £7.00-7.50/hour.

As the successfully appointed candidate you will have a natural and obvious passion for early years, caring and nurturing qualities and a real desire to positively contribute towards children's education and well-being.

The nurseries are all located across the county of Northamptonshire, which makes for a great opportunity to regularly get together with the colleagues across the group to plan, to share discussions relating best practice, and to offer advice, guidance and a friendly, supportive ear.

Not only do these nurseries put their children first, they also truly value their staff team across all of their nurseries - flexible work patterns are encouraged, and as the successfully appointed Qualified Nursery Practitioner you will be able to choose how many hours you work each week (subject to meeting the operational needs of the nursery).
