Job Description

Childbase Partnership, rated the UKs number 1 best big company to work for, is looking to recruit an Apprentice to join the team in June / July at River View Day Nursery in Hertford.

Work should be fun and we are looking for individuals who share that philosophy whilst providing children under 5 with a 'Sound Foundation' for life.

Your duties as an Apprentice Nursery Nurse will include:

  • Building positive relationships with the children, families, colleagues and internal/external professionals
  • Ensuring that each child's wellbeing is met and that they thrive in a safe environment
  • Safeguarding all children in our care
  • Observing, monitoring and engaging in children's play activities linked to the EYFS. Activities will support children's language and literacy, art and design, numeracy and physical development
  • Keeping records on individual children, including daily observations and information about activities, meals served, and medications administered
  • Learning how to provide high quality childcare to our children
  • Assisting in serving food to children, ensuring special dietary requirements are met

We offer a wide range of employee benefits at Childbase Partnership, including:

  • Cash rewards for going 'Beyond Expectation'
  • Potential for an annual tax-free Partnership Dividend
  • 22 days annual leave plus bank holidays, with the option to buy and sell leave

The pay rate is £5.55 per hour and you will work 37.5 hours a week. After 6 months, if you are aged 17 or above, your pay rate will increase to £9.00 per hour.

During your work-based apprenticeship with our in-house training academy, you will be allocated time to complete any relevant computer-based learning and there will be some studying at home. If you don't already hold GCSEs graded A-C / 4-9 in English and Maths, you will be required to study for functional skills alongside your early year's qualification.

A level 2 apprenticeship will last for approximately 12-15 months and a level 3 will last for 18-20 months. Upon completion, you will have the opportunity to apply for qualified roles in our local nurseries.

If you are enthusiastic and want a career in childcare then we would love to hear from you.

Successful applicants will need to provide 'right to work in the UK' documentation, undertake a DBS and provide at least two satisfactory references prior to commencing employment. If you have lived outside of the UK, EU or EAA in the last 3 years you may not be eligible for funding for an apprenticeship.
