Children, Education and Justice Services

Head of Centre
Pennywell Early Learning and Childcare

Salary: £40,275 - £47,654 per year
Hours: 36 per week

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Head of Centre position in a new Early Learning and Childcare within the Northwest of Edinburgh. 

Pennywell Early Learning and Childcare is a new provision and will be part of the McMillan Hub in Craigroyston.  It will provide Early Learning and Childcare to 185 children aged from birth to 5 years across multiple flexible spaces. 

The McMillan Hub will also house Muirhouse Library and North Edinburgh Arts so there is a fantastic opportunity to work collaboratively and innovatively with these services.  Providing opportunities for partnerships and creativity for users of the Hub will form a key part of the role of the successful candidate.

Pennywell Early Learning and Childcare is due for completion in early 2024 and the successful candidate will initially be appointed as Head of Centre for Craigroyston ELC, which will become part of Pennywell on completion of the new build. The engagement of stake holders will enhance the transition into Pennywell ELC and the community of McMillan Hub.

This post is considered Regulated Work with Vulnerable Children and/or Protected Adults, under the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (Scotland) Act 2007. Preferred candidates will be required to join the PVG Scheme or undergo a PVG Scheme update check prior to a formal offer of employment being made by the City of Edinburgh Council.

We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.
