If you are an experienced Early Years Practitioner and you are looking for something new, we might be the next step for you. We know that times are hard and a lot of nurseries are struggling, and maybe not able to offer the support and career progression you are looking for at the moment. At Red Bus we are able to do that right now and we have some very exciting positions open in our management teams.

Room Managers and their own management team are part of the overall management team of the nursery. At Red Bus, we have quite sizeable age groups so each one has a Room Manager who in turn has an Assistant Manager

and usually two Lead Practitioners. This team get great support, training and career development. As people moving into these positions are often coming from nurseries where they have been at for some time, we offer a smooth as possible transition to Red Bus with great on-boarding and induction planning. We have lovely supporting staff in our teams and we can take the risk out of that move for you. Currently we have a position open in all of our age groups (Babies 3m-2 years), Kindergarten (2-3 years) and the Pre-School age group.

Our Lead Practitioners 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 top gain further qualifications.
