Nursery Nurses recruitment agency listing
Nursery nurses aren't just expensive babysitters. There can be a variety of outcomes that they work towards, depending on the organisation for which they work. Some work for the NHS at Child Development Centres, while others might gain employment with private nurseries.
Although employers and recruitment agencies tend to look for qualifications first and foremost, it isn't always essential. Experience is important " the more, the better " and being able to demonstrate the qualities that employers prefer in a person taking this role. A Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check will take place before an offer of employment is confirmed.
For candidates who choose to do training either before they enter employment, or alongside a job, there are a variety of further and higher education courses available, including BTECs, CACHE Level 3 Diplomas and HNDs, Foundation Degrees (FdAs) and degrees.
Although the entry level salary starts at around £11,000 p.a. it can rise to as much as £21,000 p.a. within some organisations, especially where management responsibilities come into play.
The most important qualities for a nursery nurse are to be a good communicator, to be interested in and comfortable around children, to be extremely tolerant and to be able to multi-task.
