Would you like to work for an organisation steeped in history but focused on the future and recognised worldwide as a centre of excellence? 

An organisation that promotes a healthy work/life balance and recognises and rewards achievements? If so, then Norland is the place for you.

Our TEF Gold-rated award-winning early years undergraduate degree and integrated diploma programme is world-renowned for delivering outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for our students. In March 2019, we were granted Taught Degree Awarding Powers (TDAP) by the Privy Council and now offer our own BA (Hons) Early Childhood Education and Care degree alongside the prestigious Norland diploma. We recently won the UK’s top Small or Specialist Provider award at the 2023 Whatuni Student Choice Awards, our third win and the sixth consecutive year in the top two. In 2021, Whatuni named us the top university in the UK for Enhanced Graduate Outcomes. In 2022, we won the Inspiring Course award at the UK’s Independent Higher Education Awards.

We are looking to appoint a Team Manager to join our busy and thriving Newly Qualified Nanny (NQN) team.

The successful candidate will manage the NQN aspect of the Norland Diploma, teach and assess on programmes delivered by Norland and line manage the NQN Consultants and NQN Recruitment Administrators. You will have leadership qualities with a desire to undertake further training to develop these skills. You must have a relevant Masters degree or be willing to undertake one, and evidence of recent CPD related to teaching, learning and assessment.

You will need to hold a BA degree in early years and have experience working with babies, young children and families in a variety of contexts, preferably as a nanny and have knowledge of current practices and challenges within the early years sector. Experience of being a Norlander is not essential, but would be a significant advantage.

You will need to be a self-starter, with the ability to get on well with people, be highly organised in order to meet deadlines and work to a high level of accuracy in a fast-paced environment. A flexible approach to work and a friendly, approachable nature are key to being successful in this role.
