Early Years Practitioner (all experience levels considered)

Red Bus works very hard to be an exceptional place for children and also an exceptional place for staff to work. We value our staff very much and this means that they tend to stay with us for a long time, developing their careers, growing their own families and generally growing with us.

Things are tough at the moment in many industries but we continue to strive to make Red Bus an employer of choice. We are almost fully staffed so we are bucking the trend at the moment which we hope will make for a much more pleasant working environment.

Our Coombe Dingle setting is rated Outstanding with Ofsted and is situated within beautiful grounds in a lovely historic building. We really take care of our environments too, we are very well resourced and our parents tell us what an amazing place Red Bus is for their children.

Our Practitioners strive to be great at their job, whether they have just qualified, qualified some time ago and want to get back into childcare, or if they have solid experience already as a Practitioner. Supported in their age group by their own room management team, our teams work very closely together, supporting each other, feeling valued and working in very positive and happy teams.

We have positions for the following : Level 2 Practitioner

Level 3 Practitioner

We also very much value candidates with higher qualifications (eg graduate) and those who already hold a recognised Forest School qualification or a SEND Level 3. We pay a premium for these qualifications (additional £1000 per year for a full time position higher than advertised pay)

For those with a minimum Level 3 in Early Years we have Lead Practitioners who are part of the room management team, and are role models for the rest of the team. They display excellent practice within the room but also have their own management duties under the direction of the Room Manager. They often excel in their own areas of expertise too and we have room 'Champions' for this in area such as SEN, Outdoor Play and others. We also support staff to gain further qualifications.

What Red bus can offer you :

  • an excellent salary and benefits package (including up to 36 days holiday per year which includes paid time off over Christmas, social events, team bonding, staff recognition scheme, sick pay scheme, and much more ... );
  • a passionate organisation who work hard to do everything well;
  • very friendly teams who work together;
  • excellent support from management;
  • a leadership team who actively engage with staff and involve them in decisions about the setting and working conditions, etc;
  • excellent training and development opportunities;
  • a very secure business who are thriving despite today's challenges in the marketplace.

If you want to work in a very positive place with team members who support each other and want to really enjoy what you do at work, please apply to Red Bus for either a fast response through to interview, or alternatively if you would like to discuss anything further before that stage, that's fine too.

The details :

Full time positions, 40 hours per week over 4.5 days a week.

If you cannot work full time but are available part-time, please apply but let us know exactly what hours you can do. We are particularly interested in candidates that can do a number of full days or afternoons only.
