First Steps supply childcare staff to nurseries and deliver crèches across Merseyside in childcare settings and children’s centres.
We are looking for quality, motivated sessional Level 3 Childcare Workers/Crèche Leaders and Level 2 Crèche Assistants to join our bank of workers.
To be a Level 3 Childcare Worker or Crèche Leader you must have a Level 3 in a childcare qualification and good experience working with children in childcare settings.
To be a Crèche Assistant, you must have at least a level 2 and some experience.
Level 3 Childcare Workers/Crèche Leaders are paid £9.00 per hour; Assistants paid £8.21 per hour (from 1st April 2019). In addition, an annual leave allowance is paid on top of this.
If successful, you will be placed on a bank of workers and undertake work as required.
Appointment is subject to DBS (which crèche workers are required to pay £25 – half of the total cost – for if provisionally appointed after interview; this is returned after completing at least 25 hours of work) and two references. However, if you are registered for the DBS Update Service and it is up-to-date, we will not need to conduct a DBS, and so therefore there is no charge, but you will need to supply your DBS Update Service Number.
Please note the Crèche Leader job description is the one to refer to for all level 3 applicants.
