Bright Horizons Nurseries are recruiting for a Nursery Nurse to join our lovely Nursery in Hinxton, South Cambridgeshire.  The role is with the under 3's.  Bright Horizons consists of over 130 Nurseries in the UK and Ireland.

As a Nursery Nurse you will be joining a professional, established, and friendly team. You can expect a nurturing and supportive environment, annual salary reviews, staff recognition schemes, and lifestyle benefits.

To be considered for the position of Nursery Nurse you will need to hold a full and relevant level 2 or 3 child care qualification, have good knowledge of the EYFS and some experience as a key worker.  You will be friendly, hard working and have a positive can-do attitude.

As a Nursery Nurse you are a key member of the early year’s team responsible for delivering high quality care and learning opportunities for children, based on the needs and interests of those children. 

Some of your duties will be:-

  • Promote positive relationships with parents, children and colleagues
  • Ensure health, safety and wellbeing of the children 
  • Support the children’s development, learning and play 
  • Be a key person carrying out all related responsibilities in building relationships with a small group of children and their families according to the EYFS

There are fantastic opportunities to grow and develop with the only childcare provider to be recognised for 6 consecutive years as one of the Financial Times top 50 Best Workplaces in the UK.

Because of the nature of this job, it will be necessary for the appropriate level of criminal record disclosure to be undertaken. Therefore, it is essential in making your application you disclose whether you have any pending charges, convictions, bind-overs or cautions and, if so, for which offences. This post will be exempt from the provisions of Section 4 (2) of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Therefore, applicants are not entitled to withhold information about convictions which for other purposes are 'spent’ under the provision of the Act, and, in the event of the employment being taken up, any failure to disclose such convictions will result in dismissal or disciplinary action. The fact that a pending charge, conviction, bind-over or caution has been recorded against you will not necessarily debar you from consideration for this appointment.
